“I want to help entrepreneurs understand the importance of the “new value workers” -- leaders and employees who understand the underlying dynamics of problems and can anticipate consequences, who can suspend judgment and explore different perspectives."
Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Mike Vaughan, CEO of The Regis Company, the Golden-based provider of sophisticated simulations-based corporate training, will deliver the luncheon keynote for the 2014 Angel Capital Summit, an annual event that brings together investors, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders. In his presentation, “Value Workers: Your Best Business Assets,” Vaughan will discuss the importance of thinking styles and how leaders and employees who think critically, creatively, and systematically can help companies grow faster and more profitably.
Hosted by the Rockies Venture Club, the Angel Capital Summit takes place March 18-19 at Sturm Hall on the University of Denver campus. Vaughan’s speech is slated for Thursday, March 19, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
“My book is based on extensive research into the neuroscience of thinking and my own work in corporate training,” said Vaughan. “Through our use of customized business simulations -- which teach people how to think, not what to think – we’ve seen real behavior changes and significant business impact.
“I want to help entrepreneurs understand the importance of finding, hiring, and developing the “new value workers” -- leaders and employees who understand the underlying dynamics of problems and can anticipate consequences, who can suspend judgment and explore different perspectives.”
“Every hire is a critical hire for startups and rapidly growing companies,” said Peter Adams, director of Rockies Venture Club. “Mike’s presentation will give our attendees, many of whom are poised for phenomenal growth, timely advice as they build out their management teams and workforces.”
