Speaker, Vice President of People Evolution
Alex envisions a world where work is effortless, and teams are drama-free.
Standing side-by-side since 2015 with NY Times Bestselling author and thought leader Cy Wakeman, Alex collaborates with organizations and leaders globally to help them ditch the drama from the workplace, hardwire accountability in their teams and turn excuses into results.
Everything that Alex does is designed to help people understand that success and happiness is their natural state as a human being – once the drama is gone. With this core belief, Alex’s passion is revealing to those he works with that once people carve away drama from their lives – the same job they found themselves upset with today, becomes the job they look forward to and love tomorrow.
As a keynote speaker and trainer, he helps organizations exchange the endless argument for a DIFFERENT workplace reality for a shifted perspective that enables them to start achieving more success and fulfillment in their CURRENT workplace reality.
In addition to sharing the Reality-Based philosophy from the stage, Alex is also a quintessential part of Cy Wakeman’s content creation and media team spreading the ditch the drama message online. Over the last three years, his expertise, insights and execution have helped to balloon her online community of raving fans from 15,000 to 150,000 followers across platforms.
As the host of The Carvery Podcast with Alex Dorr (available on Apple iOS, Google Play and Simplecast), he shares his journey, stories, and insights as a Reality-Based speaker and practicing drama defuser to help others carve away their own drama and start calling those they lead to greatness.
Although Alex stands in at 6’6” tall and is commonly told at events, “you look a lot taller up close,” he prides himself on being down to earth or better yet, grounded in reality.

Speaking Program Topics
“Alex presented the Hardwiring Accountability program with around 300 of our leaders and supervisors in May of 2017. Attendees were engaged from start to finish and the table exercises and activity at the end did a fantastic job of tying together the content to sustain the learning. There were a few attendees that came up afterward asking for more sessions like the one he presented and that they couldn’t wait to put the new Reality-Based tools to use in their day-to-day. In the feedback survey the week following our session, several leaders commented that they were able to immediately put into place new practices to help them deal with workplace issues. As a presenter, Alex was able to integrate audience participation and interaction as he presented to keep the content light yet impactful. “

“Alex worked with our executive team around the Reality-Based Leadership philosophy for a full day. His presentation was compelling, engaging and got our entire staff participating! Many of the executives mentioned that not only was the content eye-opening on the cost of drama in the workplace, but they were excited about the practical tools they now had to be able to recapture energy that is about to be lost to drama and, in the moment, redirect that energy into adding value to the situation. Not only was this training helpful at work, it really opened my eyes up to ways the Reality-Based philosophy could be used in settings other than the workplace.“
