"Express is proud to present this exciting opportunity for business leaders from throughout our community," said Randy Hansen, owner of Express. "We know poor leadership is a No. 1 reason why people leave companies so we’re offering support to businesses with a focus on learning about great leadership."

In addition to founding, Kawasaki is the former chief evangelist of Apple and offers leaders an engaging presentation on enchantment: the art of changing hearts, minds and action. In this presentation, Kawasaki discusses how to influence people’s hearts, minds, and actions to bring about change. According to Kawasaki, the power of enchantment enables one to maneuver through difficult decisions, break entrenched habits, defy the wisdom of crowds, and get colleagues to work for long-term, mutually beneficial goals.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Terry Bradshaw, will share his strategy of success through persistent self-improvement by challenging leaders to think in new ways about sacrifice, pain, competition, and adversity.

Those attending the Refresh Leadership Simulcast will also be challenged by Amanda Gore to wake up to the spirit of leadership. Gore points out that to impact an organization, one must lead with a change of heart, a change of spirit. According to Gore, people are no longer a company’s most important asset; the spirit in which people do things is.

"Express has a strong presence in Humboldt and Del Norte counties and we have great support from the community," said Hansen. "We are pleased to offer the Refresh Leadership Simulcast as a way to give back to the business community."
