Before You Can Effectively Lead Others, You Must Learn How to Lead Yourself

To be a good leader, you must first learn how to lead yourself. This idea is the theme of this year’s Leadercast Women conference led by nine academically and critically acclaimed speakers held at Klamath Community College November 8th in Klamath Falls.  

At Leadercast Women, that is one of the primary goals that is taught. Leadercast Women is an event that will change you, not simply with “how to” advice that will make you a better leader, but also with long-term lessons in life and leadership that help you grow into the person you’ve always aspired to be.

Molly Fletcher & Marilyn Tam,
Featured Speakers at Leadercast Women

During the conference, CEO and Keynote speaker Molly Fletcher will help attendees understand how to lead oneself to success before leading others to maximum effectiveness. She, among other speakers, will guide attendees on how to implement this, how to see it through and how it will change your life, and the lives of others.

Molly Fletcher is a true trailblazer in every sense of the word. As CEO of The Molly Fletcher Company, she shares her unconventional and unique techniques that made her one of the first female sports agents in the high stakes, big ego world of professional sports to teach others the art of negotiation. Molly was dubbed the “female Jerry Maguire” by CNN when she served as president of client representation for sports and entertainment agency CSE.    

As one of the world’s only female sports agents, Molly recruited and represented some of sport’s biggest names: Hall of Fame pitcher John Smoltz, PGA Tour golfer Matt Kuchar, broadcaster Erin Andrews, and basketball championship coaches Tom Izzo and Doc Rivers. Molly has authored Fearless At Work, A Winner’s Guide to Negotiating, The Business of Being the Best and The 5 Best Tools to Find Your Dream Career.

The future of business is dependent on having great leaders. This idea is the core of Leadercast Women and all its speakers, including best-selling author Marilyn Tam. Livestreaming at Klamath Community College on November 8th, Leadercast Women is a must-attend for any aspiring entrepreneur or leader.

Marilyn grew up as an abused and neglected child in Hong Kong, and left home as a teen to come to America alone. Following her life mission, she achieved international business and humanitarian success. She now helps people and organizations find and fulfill their life’s purpose, and provides them with the principles and actionable steps to help them reach their goals.

Marilyn is a speaker, best-selling author, consultant, board-certified executive and corporate coach, CEO of Marilyn Tam & Co., and founder and executive director of Us Foundation. Marilyn also formerly served as CEO of Aveda Corp., president of Reebok Apparel and Retail Group, and vice president of Nike Inc.
