Earn a Seat at the Table: Five Choices for Transforming From

Functional Expert to Strategic Leader

Facilitated by Jeff Shannon,Bravium

There are two groups of people in every organization. The majority of people thought to be down in the weeds and a rare few who can see the big picture. The question is, which are you?

If you want to make a lasting difference in your organization, you need to be more than a functional expert. You need to generate transformation at the organizational and individual levels. You need to be more strategic.

In this empowering and entertaining program, you will learn the five unexpected and essential choices for becoming more strategic in how you think, act, and lead.

Key Highlights:

· Discover what it means to be strategic

· Learn how curiosity can put the odds in your favor

· Develop a proven method for preventing fire drills

· Protect yourself from risk using a 2,000-year-old idea

· Make better choices by asking the right questions

· Act with greater confidence

This program is transformational for any professional and especially so for anyone who is working in the fast-paced and always-on nature of the critical service functions like Human Resources, Finance, and IT. If you want to empower your employees to stop waiting for permission and start acting like owners, this keynote is perfect for you.
