What Does Leadership Look Like?

Leaders have a positive impact on other people. We asked ourselves the age old question: do employees leave their boss or the company?

Has leadership changed considering the different generations and diverse groups within our workplaces?

With remote offices and mobile devices, what expectations do we have of our leaders and are these expectations realistic?

Join our discussion! Industry leaders and community builders share their personal and professional expertise and strategies on the topic of todays leaders. Come prepared to discuss and explore:

– how leadership has changed/evolved

– expectations we place on current and future leaders

– what you can do to support and develop leaders

We believe building leadership skills and corporate culture revolves around your company’s ability to tackle conversations with ease. This unique event offers participants the chance to engage in meaningful conversation on leading business topics/issues.

Are you sick of hearing about innovation?

Businesses have been yammering about innovation for the last few years. Those businesses that are the least innovative seem to talk about it the most, as if somehow repeating the word will make them innovative. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. It’s a little like sex. Those who aren’t getting any are the ones who talk about it the most, but talking doesn’t make it so. Before I lose you down that path, let’s get back to the concept of innovation.

Catalyst for Change

Individuals and organizations frequently suffer from inertia when it comes to change. Sometimes inertia is good, because not all change is beneficial. In our fast moving and driven culture, we are guilty periodically of assuming that we have to be implementing changes on a personal and/or corporate level constantly or we are not improving. The danger in that mentality is that we implement change for the sake of change instead of carefully considering the action, direction, and anticipated outcome before deciding whether change is required.
