EYE OPENER SESSION SPEAKERS

Holly Green, The Human Factor

Topic: Just Getting It Done - Driving Execution

Are you incredibly busy?  Is everyone in your organization feeling the same?  Forget frantic acceleration.  Measuring the clock of business is about choosing when to be fast and when to be slow.  Distractions have increased, access to data has exploded and the possibility of instant connection looms constantly.  These forces have created a belief that speed is more important than just about anything else leading us to behaviors that revolve around Busy-ness:  a self-imposed mental model underlying dysfunctional, irrational and illogical behaviors in most areas of our lives.  
 
In this overview, you’ll explore methods, tips & tools to get the right things done every day. The session focuses on:
  • Constantly gaining self-awareness and developing an action and decision orientation
  • Creating clarity throughout the organization
  • - Determining mission, guiding principles & destination points
    - Establishing and refining priorities
    - Integrating and aligning efforts
  • Staging yourself and your organization for success
  • - Focusing on targets
    - Building a breakthrough model
  • Getting conscious on how you split your attention
  • - Establishing priorities
    - Clarifying performance goals


Mitch Klingher, CPA & Scott Ellis, Ed.D

Topic: The Right Decisions at the Right Time

Mitch Klingher and Scott Ellis will lead a discussion of the processes to improve the timing and quality of leadership decision-making. As industry consolidation continues how does one decide when and how to buy or sell?  How can I turn my capital improvement questions into math problems? What should I consider as I decide if or when to hire a family member.

Participants will learn from others experiences and be encouraged to share their own.
