Topics with Descriptions:
  • Enterprise Thinking:
    An Integrated Approach to Leadership and Management
    Speak with any CEO or business owner and they are looking for leadership. Business Week, The New York Times, Fortune and Forbes all recount the need for leadership and better management. Our educational system does not understand it, our business environment tries create it and yet we are falling short continually. ENTERPRISE THINKING takes management through the process of understanding what it takes to grow in management and in leadership and then develops them through a better understanding of the roles the individual play in the organization. The presentation uses real company examples, analysis of corporate needs and a process for understanding the four key elements needed to create first an understanding then action.

  • "The Changing Faces of Leadership:
    The Secrets of Leaders Past and Present"
    Our constant search for the better leader may mind that most of what we have learned has been rehashed from years gone by.

    The Corporate and Personal Goals reaches in between the thin line drawn between work and home. Focusing on corporate planning as well as predictions of future business methodology attendees leave with a better understanding of how to reach new heights in their professional lives.

Participants are challenged and assisted and making real life decisions while at the same time are refocusing their lives to be more in line with a life long objective.
