Guest Speaker: Alex Dorr

Alex Dorr is a former professional basketball player for the Derby Trailblazers in Derby, England, holds a Master’s of Science in International Business, and a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration.

His journey with the Reality-Based philosophy began in his internship with Reality-Based Leadership when he was introduced to Cy Wakeman’s RealityBased message and witnessed the incredible results her clients were experiencing. Over the next several years Alex became a practitioner, living by the philosophy and determined to put its principles to the test. Whether it was international sales, event management or even, professional basketball the philosophy’s core principles of ditching the drama and turning excuses into results continued to catapult him into career opportunities he could have never expected.

As a young leader in the workplace he noticed some common patterns that continued to emerge. It did not matter which side of the Atlantic Ocean Alex was on or what industry he was working in, there was one constant keeping people from achieving the results and happiness they longed for – drama. Inspired by how well the simple Reality-Based techniques allowed him to step into the power he already had as an employee while, at the same time, diffusing drama and calling those he was leading to greatness – Dorr began speaking and training.

Today, he is a full-time member of Cy Wakeman’s team and a Certified Facilitator handpicked by Cy to deliver the RealityBased message, collaborating with organizations to change their mindsets and succeed in spite of the challenging circumstances they face.

Program Information

We are certainly in challenging times in our business world today. We have been in challenging times in the past and we will be faced with challenging times again at some point in the future. Here’s the reality check - The fact that times are challenging is not the source of our pain. The source of our pain is the absence of great leadership based in reality. Session objectives include: 

  • Develop and utilize metrics to evaluate leadership’s contributions to the achievement of the organization's strategic goals and objectives.
  • Identify the reasons the current leadership model is failing and provide professionals with an innovative and revolutionary new look at their roles in the organization.
  • Understand the principles of Reality-Based Leadership and how to apply them in your work place and in your coaching opportunities.
  • Re-evaluate the work leaders have done to date in their companies so that they can transform their tools, programs, and philosophies into ones that actually work and that leaders will actually use.
