Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 21, 2005
ExecuGrowth, Inc, an established leadership development and business consulting firm, will host a Leadership Forum featuring Creating We best-selling business author Judith Glaser. The two-day forum is designed to teach leaders the latest principles, practices and actions that will enhance the growth of individuals and organizations.
Creating We has been selected as one of the Best Business Books of 2005 by Forbes and the Business Book Review. ÂWe consider JudithÂs process to be timely and groundbreaking. Her approach provides a compelling framework for learning and transformation in organizational cultures,Â said Dawne Era, founding partner with Kathleen Ranahan, of ExecuGrowth Inc. ÂIn todayÂs world, old-style management no longer works. To build a healthy, thriving organizational culture, interconnectedness among teams is a must.
JudithÂs step-by step method paves the way to creating a culture of collaboration, strength and positive outcomeÂ says Era.
The two-day Leadership Forum is designed for any leader who is ready to step into a more powerful approach to partnering with their employees. The curriculum will include: Inspiring Commitment to a Higher Purpose and Values, Establishing Mutual Accountability and Responsibility, Deconstructing Ineffective Behavior Patterns, Dissolving Cultural Boundaries, Building Skills to Handle Conflict and Complexities, Building an Environment that Creates Success, and Learning the Language of Protecting, Sharing, Discovering, and Partnering.
Glaser maintains that every individual wants to do well, to contribute, and to be included on winning teams. Many organizations are unwelcoming environments that drain energy away from productivity, health and high performance. In her proven process, people can become alert to anything that challenges the health of the culture, the organization, the team, and one-on-one relationships, whether it arises from within, from the competition, and/or from customer feedback. They can also listen in new ways to others so that everyone adds to the collective ability of the organization to respond quickly and proactively. ÂWhen colleagues work in concert, they learn from each other and are more apt to develop the higher-level skills and wisdom needed to meet the organizationÂs performance goals. When we connect, we learn how to turn breakdowns into breakthroughs- we become high-performing,Â says Glaser.
ExecuGrowthÂs goal is to Âpromote the creation of healthy, successful leadership that will benefit everyone within the corporate environment. We know that JudithÂs work is transformational and necessary,Â says Era.
