The One Day MBA:
The Tools You Need for World-Class Performance

All managers need a broad perspective to effectively deal with the complex challenges they face daily. To develop this skill, this one-day seminar presents many of the tools and techniques found in MBA programs today. Specifically, participants will examine how basic business processes drive financial results, learn how effective risk management can improve business planning and decision making, and explore how financial and non-financial measures can best be used to evaluate operating results.
How Innovative Thinking Leads to Extraordinary Outcomes
August 30, 2017 with Dr. Iris Firstenberg
Successful organizations operate on the edge of chaos and embrace risk, error, and ambiguity, while practicing strategies that reduce the need for doing, undoing, and redoing. You will learn key strategies and practical tools to give you the adaptive capacity to work creatively with change and uncertainty. We will discuss strategies for tapping the human potential for creative thinking, from the inception of ideas to their transformation into practical business strategies and innovations. Learn how effective leaders infuse all levels of the organization with the creative capacity to achieve extraordinary outcomes.
From Player to Coach:
Making the Successful Transition to Management
September 19, 2017 with Dr. Michael Woodward
The transition from star player to team coach is a tremendous leap. All too often new managers are thrown into challenging circumstances with limited support and resources. With increasing globalization and the move to virtual environments, managing is more complex than ever before.

Strategy Matters:
Turning Ideas into Actions
October 3, 2017 with Dr. Thomas Lawton
In this seminar we lay out an integrated and dynamic process for thinking about and doing strategic management. Adopting a strategic approach renders managers better able to make decisions during unstable and uncertain periods and more able to deal with complexity, diversity and varied sources of information both inside and outside their organisations.  The underpinning principle is the balance between change and consistency. To achieve breakthroughs in performance, managers need to recognise and maximise where excellence exists inside the organisation, while at the same time identifying and seizing opportunities outside.

True Drivers of Performance:
Work Smarter, Reduce Stress, Lead By Example
November 14, 2017 with Mr. Steve McClatchy
Followers are not interested in leaders who cannot, or will not, "walk the talk".  Asking people to change, improve and achieve more is a waste of time when their leader cannot model the desired behaviors in his or her own life.
