Refresh Leadership Simulcast Features Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Patrick Lencioni and Bertice Berry

Nationwide Simulcast Event Sponsored by Express Employment Professionals

OKLAHOMA CITY, April 18, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Pro Football Hall of Famers Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith; leadership consultant and New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni, and sociologist and author Bertice Berry, Ph.D., will take center stage at 2012 Refresh Leadership Simulcast from Tyler, Texas on Wednesday, May 16, to inspire and motivate business leaders nationwide.

Refresh Leadership Simulcast is sponsored by Express Employment Professionals, one of the nation's largest privately-held staffing companies.

"The measure of success for all great leaders is their ability to inspire those they lead. It's a tremendous responsibility and one that should never be taken lightly," said Robert A. Funk, CEO and chairman of the board for Express Employment Professionals, one of the nation's largest privately-held staffing companies. "The speakers for Refresh Leadership Simulcast were chosen for their unique and proven ability to lead and motivate a team."

Refresh Leadership Simulcast will be broadcast from Tyler to nearly 200 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Business leaders, human resource professionals, chamber of commerce officials and chamber members can find a simulcast location and register to attend by visiting

When registering, individuals will have the opportunity to submit a question for Aikman and Smith to answer when they share leadership tips and advice learned as members of the Dallas Cowboys, one of the most prolific professional football teams in history.

Leaders can also learn from Lencioni on how to identify the natural human tendencies that plague all leadership. As identified in his first best-selling book, The Five Temptations of a CEO, Lencioni will share how these tendencies often prevent leaders from fulfilling their potential and he'll offer advice on how to overcome these common behavioral pitfalls.

Those attending the Refresh Leadership Simulcast will be challenged as Berry shares the importance of finding one's purpose in life while she also helps participants identify different learning styles.

"Being a leader means more than just managing employees," Funk said. "Even top performing employees can lose focus without the support of a great leader driving them to excel. It is crucial for leaders today to learn a leadership and communications style that works best for them and the people they manage."
