Join us for the David Letterman Distinguished Professional Lecture and Workshop Series, featuring Stedman Graham, business advisor, author, chairman and CEO of S. Graham and Associates, and 1989 Ball State University graduate!

If you are wanting to become a passionate, purposeful, and meaningful leader through identifying who you are, your strengths, and your skills, this lecture is for you! “Identity Leadership” will be held at 7 p.m. on October 19 at Sursa Performance Hall. 

New York Times bestselling author Stedman Graham’s Identity Leadership is a very personal and prescriptive guide that is based on his philosophy that a leader can’t lead others until he can first lead himself. The more he works on himself—the more he can give to those around him. To know our purpose in life, we begin with our passions, skills, and talents. With this lecture we learn how to channel the best of who we are to achieve success for ourselves and those we lead.

His proven Nine Step Success Process® drives his powerful message. This success process is based on the principle that it doesn’t matter how the world defines you, it only matters how you define yourself. Graham is honored as a distinguished visiting professor at colleges and universities throughout the country. He is a former adjunct professor at the Northwestern Kellogg School of Business where he taught the course, “The Dynamics of Leadership.”
