Dr. Joe was the team leader on two $5-million engineering projects beneath the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans. His latest book, Deep Leadership: Essential Insights from High-Risk Environments was based on his experiences on undersea engineering projects and interviews with shuttle astronauts and soldiers serving in Afghanistan. In this visually-driven presentation, he uses dramatic stories to distill what he learned about strategic imagination, the power of language, the strength of stamina and how these three principles make you a better, faster leader in your office or workplace.
Dr Joe has worked on high-risk undersea engineering projects with teams from the US Navy, the French and Canadian governments and the Russian Academy of Sciences. In this visually-driven presentation he reveals the team genius needed to pilot a research sub three miles under the ocean, work on a Canadian Special Forces team and spacewalk on the International Space Station. He uses the $30-million James Cameron-National Geographic science dive into the Mariana Trench to examine the primary principles of team genius: deep empathy, deep eloquence and deep endurance and how to use them to accelerate your team’s genius.
Dr Joe was the co-leader of a $5-million Imax film expedition to the Titanic and has made two 4,000 metre dives to the Mount Everest of shipwrecks. He was the journalist on James Cameron’s $7-million live-from-the-Titanic broadcast for the Discovery Channel. In this visually-driven presentation, he shows how going too fast . . . ignoring iceberg warnings . . . locking up the binoculars . . . making the wrong turn . . . are metaphors for safety and performance issues in our personal and professional lives. Using real-life examples, he warns against false assumptions, creeping complacency and reveals how vigilance and persistence accelerate safety.
