From cloakrooms to boardrooms, gridlock is a familiar term in Washington, and it’s not always used to describe a traffic tie-up on the Beltway. Les McKeown, an advisor to companies and organizations on accelerated growth, will speak at the Communicators Breakfast on Wednesday, June 11 at 8 a.m., to describe the role of the “Synergist” and it leads an organization passed inertia to achieve world-class success.

According to McKeown, every successful team has a critical player, the Synergist, who can lead three other types of players, the bold dreamers (Visionaries), the pragmatic realists (Operators) and the systems designers (Processors), and knit them together into a dynamic, well-rounded organization. Most importantly, McKeown says anyone can learn to play the Synergist role.

McKeown has advised CEOs and senior leaders of organizations on how to achieve scalable, sustainable growth. His clients range from large family-owned businesses to Fortune 100 companies, and include Harvard University, American Express, T-Mobile, United Technologies, Pella Corporation and Chiron. He also is the author of the Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller, "Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization On the Growth Track - and Keeping It There" and "The Synergist: Leading Your Team to Predictable Success."

The NPC Communicators Breakfasts are held in the Truman Lounge. Admission is free for NPC members and $10 for their guests.
