Best-selling Authors, National Speakers to Grace the Stage at AOS on May 19th

We need to recognize that we have complete control of our lives and our businesses.

The concept of “change” seems to always be at the forefront of our minds—from the start of the year when we make New Year’s Resolutions to each day when we set professional goals. It’s why Atrion, a leading IT services firm, has chosen to center its AlwaysOn Leadership Symposium, taking place May 19th at the Rhode Island Convention Center, around the theme of change.

“We need to recognize that we have complete control of our lives and our businesses,” said Atrion CEO Tim Hebert. “The challenge is that many times we see the signs that we—or our businesses—need to change, but we choose not to act. We elect not to do something. In fact, we will experience the same frustrations, limitations and setbacks over and over again because we get stuck … distracted by the whirlwind.”

The AlwaysOn Leadership Symposium, first held in January of 2010, is designed to bring together professionals across all verticals and roles for a day of personal and professional development. The event has explored everything from the importance of strong organizational culture to how to derive better business outcomes.

To expand upon this year’s theme of change, keynoters Chris McChesney and Steve McClatchy will take the stage to address more than 700 attendees. McChesney, a featured presenter of FranklinCovey’s 4 Disciplines of Execution (4DX), one of Amazon’s top 10 best-selling business audios, will explore how to execute a plan in the midst of the whirlwind of distraction.

“I know Atrion has been very successful implementing the principles behind 4DX to create more strategic focus and drive business results,” explained McChesney. “Tim wants to share with the audience a process that has worked for them. My goal is to help attendees understand why executing a strategy—that requires a change in behavior—is as difficult as it is and the universal principles for how to actually do it."

McClatchy, author of the “New York Times” bestseller “Decide: Work Smarter, Reduce Your Stress & Lead by Example,” will also grace the stage, providing insight on how to reach your highest level of personal and professional performance.

“Each person’s life is a product of the decisions they make,” he said. “Your criterion for making decisions is at the very core of your effectiveness. Great decision-making habits can yield a lifetime of success and achievements while poor ones can keep you stressed, frustrated and out of balance. My discussion will help attendees focus on results and true drivers of performance, allow them to regain critical planning and personal time as well as dramatically increase work/life engagement.”

McChesney and McClatchy will be joined by Atrion speakers, including Hebert and Chief Strategy Officer Dave Ramsden. For more information about the symposium—and to register— go to
