The Leadership Mindset

How Today’s Successful Business Leaders Think

Success today requires a new leadership mindset. Simplify, clarify, focus, innovate to create value, even disrupt…these are all parts of the mindset of today’s successful leader. Participants will gain new perspectives on effective leadership, and will discover a simple, powerful process that creates a daily focus on high return activities for leaders and their teams.

In this interactive session, Joe shares insights on leadership drawn from his 30+ years working with leaders of companies including the Fortune 500, small businesses, franchise organizations, and non-profits. Joe is also a founding investor and leadership advisor with successful startups, is a principal in The Disruption Lab consulting group, and served as Executive In Residence with Belmont University’s Center for Entrepreneurship.

The Leadership Mindset workshop can add significant value to your leadership development event or strategic planning retreat, bringing new ideas and fresh energy to your team.

Winning And Keeping Customers In Today’s New Market Reality

Customer experience drives the market, because what your customers think and say about you is the most powerful force in influencing new customers to do business with you.

This session on Leading The Customer Focused Team is about being intentional, focused, and strategic in having your team create compelling customer experiences that drive new customer growth.

We’ll draw on ideas from Joe’s game changing books:

Leading a Winning Culture

Creating Your Greatest Competitive Advantage Through Culture

If you get your culture right, it can be your key differentiator. The most valuable assets a company can have are great employees who love to come to work every day, and great potential employees who want to work for you. You can’t “not” have a culture. The question is whether your culture is intentional, by design, and strengthened by leadership each and every day.

Learn real world lessons from Joe’s work with market leading companies that have also been recognized nationally as “best places to work.”

Session includes ideas on great cultures from Joe’s books:
