Welcome to the May 2005 edition of Key Inspirations eLearning Service with Kevin Asbjornson, MIM, international executive educator, keynote inspirational speaker and recording artist. Thank you for subscribing!

Key Inspiration for the Day: Artistry is a business imperative. The central idea of Kevin Asbjornson's keynote event and executive education experience, Artistry of Leadership - Creating Meaningful Connections®, is more critical to business success today than ever before. In their book, The Art of Business - Make All Your Work a Work of Art, authors Stan Davis and David McIntosh state that "the artistic flow is now as important in business as the economic flow and the real benefits come from weaving the two together. Companies that incorporate artistic elements into their economic flow will have a distinct competitive advantage over competitors." With Artistry of Leadership, Kevin enables executives to practice and develop inspired leadership. The result is unprecedented creativity, collaboration and productivity that give their organizations a competitive edge. To learn more about Artistry of Leadership, click here.

Kevin Asbjornson Helps Executives Leverage Emotionally Intelligent Leadership to Achieve Inspiration, Imagination and Innovation.

In today's business environment, leaders tend to think of their deliverables only in terms of short-term bottom line results. They do this to the detriment of their careers and their organization's performance. As Kevin Asbjornson, MIM, explains, the real deliverables of leadership are the principles around which he has built his professional work: Inspiration, Imagination and Innovation. These are the real business assets that ultimately drive long-term, sustainable success, and emotionally intelligent leadership is the key.

Emotional intelligence, the capacity for such things as self-awareness, creative expression, imagining, and empathy, has become a critical benchmark for evaluating a leader's potential and effectiveness. In his keynote event and executive education experience, Artistry of Leadership - Creating Meaningful Connections®, Kevin awakens executives to their emotional intelligence and reveals how to lead by inspiration, which sparks imagination that triggers innovation.

Emotionally Intelligent Leadership and Business Performance is one of Kevin's four areas of executive education expertise. To learn more about Kevin's executive education services, click here. To learn more about Artistry of Leadership, click here.
