Introvert Power, Why Quiet Leaders are So Successful?
November 30, 2018 9 am CST
Leaders were once chosen for their character, but today we live in an age where loudmouthed extroverts seem to take center stage in everything, including business, politics and entertainment. While the talkative, charismatic leader makes the front page of business magazines, recent research shows that successful business leaders tend to be more reserved, pensive and sometimes outright shy. Learn why your desire to spend significant time inside your own head may be your greatest asset. Whether you are introverted or not, you likely work with, manage or are a related to an introvert. We will discuss proven methods to better understand introverts, how to manage them, and how to get the most out of their amazing talents. If you want to enhance your leadership skills, this seminar is for you.
Business Ethics Don't Exist: The Only Ethics Rule You Need to Know?
December 7, 2018 9 am CST
Most ethics courses focus on unethical individuals and their terrible misdeeds. We don’t need another course on lessons from Enron or individuals committing fraud. Most unethical failures result from unethical individuals. Instead, this session will focus on how good people can do better, why there is no such thing as business ethics and why we only need one rule to lead ethical lives.
Devious Ethics: Dealing with Snakes in Suits?
December 14, 2018 9 am CST
Good people believe everyone else is just like them. They cannot imagine someone could con them or their company and have no guilt or remorse about what they have done. Lack of guilt and empathy are key traits of a psychopath. Most of us envision psychopaths to be cold-blooded serial killers who are locked away in prison. However, experts estimate that 4% of corporate executives are psychopaths who may initially appear to be more normal than the rest of us. Psychopaths may present a convincing picture of virtue while helping themselves to money, status and sex while leaving a path of shattered expectations, empty wallets, and broken hearts in their wake. Learn how to recognize and deal with others who have no conscience.
The Accountancy Board of Ohio has approved this course for 2 hours of credit towards the required Professional Standards to renew your CPA license. It does NOT qualify for new licensees.
Business Lessons from the Dance Floor - Leadership Secrets from Fred & Ginger
December 21, 2018 9 am CST
Every one of us can improve our leadership skills. This session discusses timeless leadership lessons learned from a seemingly unusual place - the dance floor. The parallels between business and dancing are striking; you need good partners, you must cooperate, someone must lead, someone must follow, you need to practice, you may step on someone else’s toes, and the leader does not have to be attractive. This session examines what made Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, two of the most famous dancers in the world, so successful. These leadership lessons from the dance floor can help you be a more effective leader.
Join us and learn many timeless leadership lessons that successful businesses employ every day.
