Do Your Leaders Create the Alignment, Collaboration, and Engagement Needed to Get Results?

The Hippo Show is an unforgettable live leadership experience with a simple goal: the transformation of your leaders.

 In today’s performance-driven world of fierce competition and disruption, it’s not enough to have a sound strategy or plan. You must build a leadership culture where everyone is aligned, everyone works together, and everyone is engaged.

The Hippo Show is an unforgettable live leadership experience to transform leaders to create organizational alignment. Your leaders will learn how to break down the barriers that lead to competing agendas, blame, silo thinking, slow results, disengagement, and indifference so that everyone works together to improve performance.  What would happen if everyone in your organization was inspired, fulfilled, engaged, and performing at a high level?

The Goal


Leaders lead across silos instead of exclusively within them.


Departments work in collaboration instead of on competing agendas.


Everyone is engaged around a common purpose instead of confused about how they contribute.


Leaders make every team member feel valued, connected, and engaged instead of disillusioned, disconnected, and indifferent.


Employees experience a consistent cultural experience across departments and locations instead of too frequent cultural wastelands.

About the Experience

The Hippo Show is unlike anything you’re participants have experienced before.  Most keynotes deliver information.  The Hippo Show delivers an experience.  Professional actors portray “team members” navigating the complexities of everyday leadership in a real-to-life “case study” – all live and on stage.  Participants explore the strengths, challenges, and contradictions modeled in the “team members” and prevalent in all of us.  They eventually coach the “team members” on stage to apply the content.  Throughout the experience, participants are challenged to explore and transform their own leadership thinking and behaviors.

Organic Scenes lay out “everyday” leadership challenges
“Team Members” portray leadership mindsets and behaviors
Participants interact with “Team Members” through Q&A and coaching segments
Participants reflect and interact with one another.
Our speaker / facilitator delivers fundamental leadership content and tools

Learn how to break down barriers and build a culture of collaboration.
