Topic: The Vital Choice – The Victim vs The Ownership Mindset

Wednesday Key Executive Group

todd-musselman

Speaker: Todd Musselman

Todd’s focus for the workshop is on creating a mindset of personal ownership to optimize each individual’s leadership skills, capabilities and results.  Todd utilizes the victim/owner distinction to demonstrate the profound difference between operating in the victim mindset (reacting to circumstances) vs. the ownership mindset (creating your circumstances) and the effect each mindset has on one’s overall performance as a leader.  Using a series of distinctions, the presentation clearly defines and differentiates these mindsets, and demonstrates how to choose into the ownership mindset more consistently to produce lasting results both personally and professionally.

Topic: Mastering Triggers: Understanding What Makes You Tick…and What Ticks You Off

Date: June 9, 2021

Wednesday Key Executive Group

harvey-goldberg

Speaker: Harvey Goldberg

People are creatures of habit. This program’s main objective is to help people build new habits so that they will be able to both reach and sustain high levels of performance and develop more effective coping skills in the face of rapid change. We live in a rapidly changing world. If we approach new innovations with old ways of thinking, then we end up superimposing our old outdated models on new experiences resulting in an inability to grow with the changes. It is pivotal to be mentally agile, strong, and prepared.

Tuesday CEO Group

severin-sorenson

Speaker: Severin Sorensen

Consistently attracting and capturing top game-changing talent – aka, the “difference makers” — for your business is a critical life skill for business owners and senior executives to master for sustainable company growth and business success. Difference makers are game-changing impact players and include key executive talent and much needed technical employee utility players that great businesses and teams are built upon. Unfortunately, knowing that you need and want employee “difference makers” does not make them magically appear, nor help you retain them.

Topic: Debrief to Win: Foundations of Accountable Leadership

Date: August 11, 2021

Wednesday Key Executive Group

Rob Teschner Vistage Speaker

Speaker: Rob Teschner

Many organizations struggle with implementing system-wide accountability. Holding people accountable for their decisions is a challenging prospect for anyone, especially those who lack experience in this field. An additional pressure point is the prospect of accountable leadership in a rapidly-changing environment, in an age where disruptors are constantly emerging, challenging “the old way” of doing business. Organizations that thrive in this age of rapid change are those that have built processes and employ methodologies focusing on human interactions. Critically, they’ve adopted cultures that embrace improvement and value accountability in ALL aspects of their operations. Either by design or chance they are following the approach high-performing military teams take to enable success in complex environments the world-over. Learning from these high-performing military teams is a powerful option for any organization that intends to win despite disruptive change.

Topic: Building a Raving Fans Engine

Date: August 17, 2021

Tuesday CEO Group

scott-wozniak

Speaker: Scott Wozniak

Magic happens when you pair consistent excellence with unexpected delight. Some companies have figured out how to make this the normal experience for their customers. This workshop will teach you a system so you can make this your “normal” too. This goes beyond a marketing message or a script for phone reps. I will teach you exactly how great organizations, such as Chick-fil-A and Disney Theme Parks, actually operate their businesses. This workshop includes specific methods and practical tools. It’s a how-to workshop, not a you-should workshop. If you are ready to have highly-engaged employees, generate more sales, and build a community of brand ambassadors who can’t stop talking about you, you need to build a Raving Fans Engine.
