    Dr. Kevin J. Fleming: Neuroleadership in the Middle East….

    "The keynote by Dr. Kevin J. Fleming was rich in its contribution to the overall success of the conference and significantly added to our knowledge. Not isolated from the psychological aspect, organizational transformation encounters compelling needs and implications regarding the perception and conviction of people towards change. This fact was emphasized through the presentation, taking into consideration that the core of transformation is the human element, and people, in order to change ,need to have a good and positive perception of things. The presentation was beneficial in tackling how people have different perceptions about the same thing or phenomenon, which means that the there is variance between the real image and the "in-mind" image which is formed based upon our own way of thinking that determines how we see things. This is very important because, as the presentation stated, there is no organizational transformation without personal transformation. Part of our role in public sector development is personal transformation; this linkage was highlighted and was highly value-adding to our team in emphasizing that organizational transformation needs shift in our way and level of thinking.

    We would like as Ministry of Public Sector Development to extend our thanks and appreciation to Dr. Fleming's courtesy for his participation and his valuable contribution to the conference, in addition to the distinctive and interesting management of the presentation."

    My Top Ten Critical Work Values

    1. INTEGRITY - All my services convey not only exceptional interpersonal skills and care, but also the value of being a devoted public servant to you and your business.
    1. EMPIRICISM - Interventions are grounded in latest business and behavior change research and trends, delivered by a Ph.D. trained facilitator specializing in making breakthroughs more likely.
    1. ETHICS/MORALITY - Knowing that the best behavioral intervention for executive success can never be “cheap advice” or the latest “tip or technique,” I pride my work in the principle that the best practice protocol will always be grounded in universally known moral and ethical principles that naturally bring ROI – without pulling and prodding.
    1. HUMAN CAPITAL - It is a simple fact that the most profitable corporations are those that invest well in retention, loyalty factors, and lowering the rate of losing top performers. I give executives tools to identify top performers as well as groom them for lasting productivity—including themselves!
    1. HIGH PERFORMANCE - My work consistently focuses on transforming when necessary corporate wide communication systems as well as individual factors that make noting and reinforcing high performance behaviors more likely. For the best outcome is not just emotional relief or reduction of stress—but obtaining sustainable productive behavior change.
    1. INNOVATION & CREATIVITY - Once interpersonal safety and performance goals are clarified, the power of innovation is naturally released within us all. applies the notion that something is made more possible when more creativity is unleashed for solutions.
    1. INFLUENCE - Given that we all carry those instinctive ‘self-protective strategies” that seem to shield us from what we “know we need to do” in work situations, I strive to achieve an aligned relationship that is structured around earning the right with time to influence executives sensitively yet masterfully.
    1. CLARITY OF LANGUAGE - For there is no success if what is recommended is not understood and effortlessly integrated into a daily practice.
    1. TRUST - The most essential value here—for everything is built of this principle. I hold this value in the highest regard and expect my clients to hold me accountable to this virtue that is sometimes hard to achieve with colleagues the higher up one goes on the ladder.
    1. COMMITMENT - My services are grounded in the belief that there should be 100% engagement and effort in searching for the best ways to serve executives in their personal and business strategies for success.
