Mega CPE Conference Keynote
Think about how often you need the cooperation of others to successfully accomplish something. Let's say that "successfully" means achieving what you want as painlessly as possible – minimizing drama and maximizing results.
Whether it's leading a business project, finalizing a new deal, getting your colleagues on the same page or more personal—urging an elderly parent to see the doctor, persuading your spouse to support an idea or just getting your kid to clean her room—you have to get into people's minds or hearts to do it best. This almost always requires changing how the person views it or feels about it.
Take your interactions to the next level. Learn about The Result Triangle – the tool that unlocks the secrets for inspiring, comforting and energizing, so that you can achieve highly-successful outcomes.
In this inspirational program, you will learn the must-have leadership skills that women need to continue their career progress toward the positions and roles that are best suited to their skills.
The ability of a business to grow is directly proportionate to everyone's delegating effectiveness. Truly empowering others to grow by entrusting them with responsibility and authority are huge challenges for people who like things done "just so."
CPAs are trained skeptics who are cautious and wary of errors, hunting them down to dissect and correct them. But it's certainly not just accountants who struggle to delegate; many managers and C-suite execs are plagued with an inability to truly let go. How do we overcome this and get the most out of our people? How do we shape up and comers with the skills to advance the business? How can we get passed the need for control and let go of certain work and business relationships?
11 a.m-12:20 p.m.
Women supporting women does not happen by accident. Learn how Renee Dabbs has spent her career working with women on how to support each other. She will talk about her corporate and political experiences. We are better at supporting each other than we think!
You've heard the story that networking can be a powerful boost to your bottom line. So why are you still avoiding it? Becca Gilbert has built incredible networks from Music Row in Nashville to Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. She has experienced firsthand the power of growing small businesses in multiple industries by simply connecting with people. Join us as we learn how to survive and thrive in the world of networking.
