Erik Beckler, CEO, The Afila Group
Erik Beckler is on a mission to help current and future leaders look at their world differently and lead through the concept of Love, Respect, Service and Fun.  He coaches executives and functional leaders, helping them to develop capabilities that allow them to see leadership differently to transform themselves, teams and organizations. It wasn’t so long ago, however, that he was battling one of the most debilitating conditions in the world. In 2011, Beckler was one of the estimated 22.8 percent of U.S. adults who according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) was dealing with a mental illness. In his case, the diagnosis was Dysthymia, a persistent depressive disorder. Just seven years later, The Minnesota Timberwolves and Minnesota Lynx named him the 2017-2018 Jr. NBA Minnesota Coach of the Year.
He will speak about his journey and the book he  has written: The Four Fundamental Forces of Leadership: Developing a Practice on Love, Respect, Service and Fun.
