The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and the Berkeley Center for Executive Development (CED) at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley, announced today that Dr. Frank C. Schultz, a UC Berkeley faculty member known for his research of the emerging concept of Deliberate Practice, will speak at the second program in a series of Human Capital Leadership / Berkeley Center for Executive Development events for the San Francisco area business community.
The networking breakfast event will be held on Friday, February 24, 2006, from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM PT, on the UC campus in the Berkeley Center's Wells Fargo Room, located at 2220 Piedmont Avenue.
In the presentation, "Deliberate Practice: Ingredients of Outstanding Performance," Dr. Schultz will present some of the most current research exploring exceptional levels of individual performance in sports and the arts, and discuss the direct relation of these findings to the business world.
Specific steps managers and executives can take to achieve the highest performance levels will be introduced. Business professionals will find out how they can engage in their own Deliberate Practice in order to perform at optimum levels and contribute more to their organizations.
"High performers are key to organizational success.
