2:00 pm Workshop #1: Tony Casas, President and CEO of The CAMBIO Group
The Benefits of Being Both Goal Oriented and Growth Oriented to Boom Your Business
We all seek success in our lives and career - so why do some people "make it" and others don't? Whether you're pursuing personal or business goals, the hope is to maximize influence and impact on those who rely on you and your expertise. Unfortunately, these goals are often "good goals" that are momentary and fail to connect with those who set them.
In this interactive session:
- Discover how business growth (and personal) goals work together for success in both in your life;
- Learn how to prioritize your leadership growth to naturally enhance your leadership goals in every area of your life.
Come prepared to participate using John C. Maxwell's book, "The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth: Live Them and Reach Your Potential", a #1 New York Times bestseller.
Tony Casas is a John Maxwell Certified Leadership Speaker, Coach, Teacher and Trainer. He is also a Leadership Development Coach at UNCG in the office of Leadership and Civic Engagement. His goal is to aid personal and professional growth through study and practical application of proven leadership methods and resources. He has over 25 years experience helping others create the change they desire, both personally and professionally.
4:00 pm Workshop #2: Sindy Martin, Smartin International, Inc.
Smartin-Up Your Listening Skills
Most of us do a lot of listening in our consulting - yet how much training do we actually get? This session will challenge your thinking and equip you by learning:
- Listening is the foundation for any consultant's success. Clients aren't experiencing (hence telling us) the same as before. It’s new "stuff" so we need to listen even better than before.
- There is more "noise" and distractions than ever before, interfering with our listening and understanding. Therefore, it's more critical than ever that wet sharpen our listening skills.
- High Octane LISTENING just might be the biggest key to getting your economic engine fired up and going for 2019!
