Culture is a Mirror of Leadership

How do we ensure our teams embody company values so they’re not just words on an ‘About Us’ page? It starts with leadership.

Leaders “owning” the culture, not just “talking” about it or delegating to others.

This keynote’s a beginner’s guide to concepts including ‘cultural debt’ and ‘culture conning’ and how to manage them. Equally, how culture is a top-down initiative and not just a list of values.

We also cover social learning theory and modeling behaviors, and how to re-wire primal biases for modern leadership in, and out, of the office.


In this keynote, we tell all about the most important factor for effective, high-performing teams. Psychological safety. What it is (and isn’t), giving you tools and resources to create and nurture those behaviors.

We apply our own CARE Model, enabling leaders to create psychologically safe environments to improve team effectiveness.

You’ll take away new skills to strengthen interpersonal relationships and communication with optimum amounts of clarity, autonomy, relationships, and equity®.

The Neuroscience of Leadership

Effective leadership's an unnatural act. No one’s born a great leader and only 10-15% of leaders are self-aware.

That’s why we’ve designed this keynote. To explore the challenges of leadership through a neuro-scientific lens to re-wire biases and enhance self-awareness for successful, modern leadership.

You won’t need a mirror, but we get you to actively reflect on your own natural tendencies, as humans. We explore those unconscious, and conscious, behaviors that govern, and disrupt, effective leadership.

Life-changing. Convicting. Motivating. Inspiring. Driving. Transformational. It sounds like a spiritual experience, I know. But it was actually just spending time with Alex Draper, as he introduced us to CARE.

Lindsey Simpkins, Director, Talent Development, PCI

It was an absolute pleasure to attend. Alex is a dynamic speaker with an incredible ability to deliver thought-provoking content in a kind, humorous, and radically candid way. He pulled the audience into the stories illustrating the C.A.R.E. model for creating a psychologically safe environment. The session was filled with fun practice opportunities. Our team was excited to implement the best practices learned in the session upon returning from the conference.

Daniela Sekiya, Learning & Organizational Development Specialist, Colorado Access

The impact of Alex and CARE was integral to the D&I aspect of our group...and the application of CARE's 'equity' was significant.

Barbara Hansen, North America Hub Manager, DSM

Alex was an excellent speaker, very dynamic, informative and fun. He provided practical takeaways that our leaders can apply with our teams immediately.

Kelley Mudgett, VP NA Human Resources

Alex has an amazing presence and is highly effective at delivering an actionable and inspirational message. Our audience was engaged and participated enthusiastically with the interactive portions of the presentation. The feedback from the attendees was overwhelmingly positive. I highly recommend Alex as a keynote at your next event.

Janie Schumaker, CEO, Board of Certification for Emergency Nursing

 Besides hearing from such a dynamic speaker (Alex makes it seem like he’s having a one-to-one conversation with just you), I appreciate the model's simplicity and straightforwardness. It makes it easy to apply, gives action items, and integrates easily into everyday leadership life.
