Using the Trust Edge to Learn, Connect, Partner, Succeed

Trust is a fundamental, bottom-line issue. Without it, leaders lose teams, salespeople lose sales, and organizations lose reputation, good people, relationships and revenue. But with trust, individuals and organizations enjoy greater creativity, productivity, freedom, and results.

Today’s speaker will combine humor and illustrations with business insight and analysis. Walk away with concrete steps you can immediately use to improve your life and business.

Learn—The 8 pillars of the most successful leaders and organizations.

Connect—The 3 ways to build connection. What top leaders and organizations have and how you can enjoy it yourself.

Partner—Keys to building morale, sales and customer loyalty. The greatest need for a motivated staff and how to fill it

Succeed—The “why” and “how” behind the most foundational key to real success. How to boost daily productivity by using DMAs (Difference Making Actions)

PLUS, you will have FUN!

Dinner & Entertainment: Lots Less Ceremony, Lots More Fun!

This evening’s festivities begin with a networking reception followed by a delicious dinner (with a few playful side dishes thrown in). Then, after briefly but respectfully honoring the winner of this year’s Exceptional Achievement Service Award, we’ll quickly transition to the hilarious musical comedy of The Water Coolers. E! Entertainment TV has called them “the hottest ticket in town,” so prepare to “laugh out loud”! Their comedy is clean, funny and smart–an authentic take on work and life based on things people share around the water coolers of everyday life.
