Larry Kryske has studied Winston Churchill for 35 years and is an artist. I was looking for something different in a keynote with 9/11 still fresh on everyone's mind. Larry's CREATING YOUR FINEST HOUR involves an hour-long presentation about applying Winston Churchill's leadership style and formula for success. While speaking, Larry completes an oil painting to literally help illustrate his key points. Churchill led Great Britain through its most trying time, and Larry shows how Churchill's leadership approach can be applied in our organizations today. Larry got rave reviews from the attendees, and the association got an oil painting to raffle off."

So What? Then What?

Winston Churchill recognized the importance of taking action. During the Second World War, he placed small red labels with the words "Action This Day" on the instructions and decision papers he sent to his staff. This helped create a sense of urgency that what the staff was doing was vitally important to the war effort. We, too, must have a sense of urgency. Each day we must take some actions toward our dreams if we are to create our finest hour.
