Dick Hammond with Leadership On the Move will be providing our Keynote Address and two workshops during the conference. You won’t want to miss his dynamic presentations!
Dick Hammond and his wife, Lura, are owners of Leadership On The Move!, LLC. A team development training company that provides interactive activities to help corporations, nonprofits, faith based organizations, leadership programs and individuals to enhance or develop their leadership skills. They both are self confessed ‘leadership junkies’ for they have been heavily involved with community leadership programs since 1983 when Dick graduated from the Leadership Garland program and Lura graduated in 1987. After graduating from Leadership Garland, Dick became the volunteer facilitator for that program and still is today.
Dick has served as Chair of the Board of the National Community Leadership Association.
Lura currently is the Executive Director of the national Association of Leadership Programs.
Through their company Leadership On The Move!, they have facilitated leadership skills development programs for many corporations such as Outback Steakhouse, Dr Pepper / Snapple Group, Frito-Lay, Baylor Health Care, United Super Markets, TXI, Fort Worth Transit Authority, Sara Lee, Verizon, Inc.; as well as Southern Methodist University, University of North Texas, University of Texas at Dallas, Dallas County Community Colleges and many others. But their main passion lies in the local community leadership programs and non-profit organizations. In addition to facilitating literally thousands of leaders through experiential programs ranging from cultural diversity, to economic development, to leadership skills development; Dick and Lura are also both certified Challenge Course Practitioners. They own the Leading Edge Challenge Course at Stony Ranch from which they have facilitated over 60,000 people safely through the Challenge Course team building experience.
Leadership On The Move! is a Professional Vendor Member (PVM) for the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT). It is one of only 38 companies in the entire United States to have earned this prestigious accreditation.
Dick is the co-author of the Empty bag!, a book of over 100 experiential activities that helps individual and teams enhance their leadership skills. All 100 activities require “no props”. It is all interactive using only the participants, so it requires no set up time and is easily used by both the highly skilled facilitators as well as those just beginning to work with other groups.
Most educators will tell you that people learn best when they are involved directly in the process. That is why the driving philosophy behind Leadership On The Move! can best be summed up in a saying that has been attributed to Confucius, who said:
TELL ME and I will soon forget,
SHOW ME and I may or may not remember,
but LET ME …….and then I will understand!
