Express Employment Professionals is hosting a nationwide leadership event, the 2014 Refresh Leadership Live Simulcast on Wednesday, April 16, featuring co-founder and co-CEO of Whole Foods Market John Mackey; legendary sportscaster and former basketball coach Dick Vitale, and professional speaker and expert on handling conflict and stress Christine Cashen.
A strong believer in free market principles, Mackey also co-founded the Conscious Capitalism Movement to challenge business leaders to rethink why their organizations exist and to acknowledge their roles in the global marketplace. Presenting on Conscious Leadership, Mackey will share how leaders can develop personally while growing their employees and the company itself.
Vitale’s experience and enthusiasm for the game of basketball are unparalleled and his “Vitale-isms,” like “Awesome, baby!” and “diaper dandy” have taken on a life of their own. With humor and optimism, Vitale’s presentation, The Game of Life, will share lessons he has learned from sports for addressing the problems of life.
As companies are forced to do more with less these days – fewer staff, declining resources, and 40 hours of stuff to do in a 24-hour day can really wear one down. In her topic, Stop Global Whining!, Cashen will share the secret to getting what you want with what you’ve got to make a difference in the workplace and in life.
“Poor leadership and communication skills are top threats facing businesses today, and the consequences of failing to address such issues can take a serious toll on a company’s productivity,” said Bob Funk, CEO, president and chairman of the board for Express Employment Professionals. “Our simulcast speakers will discuss what they believe makes great leaders and what they’ve learned throughout their professional careers about the importance of developing those skills.”
Back for its fifth year, the Refresh Leadership Live Simulcast will be broadcast to more than 175 locations across North America. To find a host location near you, visit RefreshLeadership.com/Live.
