APRIL EYE OF EXECUTIVE SERIES: Creating Performance Senior Teams – Leadership Panel Discussion @ Private Venue, Members & Special Guests Only
Apr 25 @ 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM

As the Leader of your organization, you know that you are only as good as your Executive Team. When your supporting team is high functioning, LIFE IS GOOD. Successful strategies are executed with excellence; innovation and collaboration is second nature; difficult conversations are easier to have. On the other end of the spectrum, however, life is tough. When your Executive Team is disfunctional, even a simple decision can derail a meeting for what seems like eternity. How do you get back on track? 

On April 25th, our panel discussion will explore the strategies and challenges of creating high performance senior teams.
