The Leader's Journey: A Path to Achieve the "Impossible"

Learning Objectives

1. Knowing and conquering yourself is the biggest battle you can win;

2. Love yourself first and for who you are; and,

3. Compassion, empathy, and vulnerability is the new way to lead.


The way we achieve great goals and overcome seemingly unconquerable obstacles is through great leadership. We are all leaders inside. We lead at
work, at home, in relationships, and among friends... and most importantly, we lead ourselves on a daily basis through our thoughts, words, and actions. The main purpose of a leader is to serve. Using compassion as the compass to lead will bring better and long lasting results within the team.

This keynote will train your audience how to achieve goals while treating the team and oneself with more empathy.


Ricardo is a speaker, coach, explorer, and filmmaker. He immigrated to the United States from Mexico City after graduating from photography school with the singular focus of building a career that would allow me to explore the world. Later he earned a Film degree at the University of Texas at Austin, then I went on to create documentary work in Mexico and China, and make the famous pilgrimage Camino de Santiago in Spain. His most recent project, Pedal South, entailed leading a team on a two-year expedition cycling from Alaska to Argentina. The purpose was to create a documentary that would give a perspective of the people and landscape of the Americas today.
