Dr. Hickey is the Founder and Executive Director of Each One - Teach One Alliance for Academic Access, Achievement and Success, an organization that focuses on efforts to heighten community awareness of the overwhelming importance of reforming educational practices targeting at-risk youth.
He is also the CEO/President of the Admired Man Leadership Institute, where he lectures and facilitates workshops based on his four year national research, and resulting book, “Admired Man Why: The Making of an Admired Man.”
His lectures, workshops book represents not only an easy to understand commentary of a number of profoundly provocative findings; in addition, they outline age specific; evidenced based skills and strategies that are aligned with the Quality/Behavior/Characteristics (QBC’s) for the making of An Admired Man.
The purpose of this workshop/keynote is to inspire and encourage men to understand and embrace the personal Quality, Behavior and Characteristics (QBC) that inspire others to Admire them, as a man. This is not to say that women would not also be inspired by the revelations excavated from this study. Mothers, wives, sisters, aunts, grandmothers and the like will benefit equally by understanding the Quality, Behavior and Characteristics (QBC) they can encourage the men in their life to embrace. To assist me in making this presentation relevant and precise, I spared no effort into researching existing scholarly and common sense literature on various topics around male studies and leadership. As I share what my research subjects have shared with me about a man they Admire and Why, I shall also explore a collection of what I refer to as L(ife)eadership Skills that facilitate the adoption and personalization of the Quality, Behavior and Characteristics (QBC) that people Admire in a Man.

Youth Leadership Development

The focus will be on how they can strategically align their beliefs with subsequent practices that: a) transform beliefs into insight and a way of knowing; and, b) evolve and experience their insights into a sustaining and experiential way of life, defined as self-actualization. Throughout this shared interactive workshop, in the process of critically examining the embedded elements and interdependent relationships between beliefs, practice, insight and self-actualization, the participants will indulge, critique, and share perspectives relevant to a number of selected extant theoretical perspectives on leaders and leadership such as: leadership traits, leadership behavior, leadership characteristics, components of leadership, leadership styles, management vs. leadership, etc..
