Breaking the FEAR Barrier

Special Presentation by GALLUP author Tom Rieger
(NOTE: All registered attendees receive a copy of this new book)

Tom Rieger and guest C-Level executives from Bank of America, Qualcomm, Parsons, Time Warner, and others will examine how poor decision making, territorial thinking and outdated allegiance to past practices are crippling creativity, employee engagement, growth and organizational synergy. Working from his recently published book attendees will learn:

  • How to identify and remove organization barriers to productivity, synergy and growth.

  • Why customer service and satisfaction actually declines as internal customer service policies increase.

  • 3 key steps to take now to remove organization silos and prevent "internal empire building".

This highly interactive session will examine new strategies and approaches to decision making, process reviews, collaboration and cross functional team innovation/effectiveness. 2012 will be the year with NO FEAR!

Q3, 2011 is ending and Q1, 2012 is around the corner

The calendar has a way of getting ahead of us if we are not careful. It seems that as the year moves along the pace increases as we get closer to the end of each year. As business people we sometimes wake up and find ourselves in the first quarter of the New Year and we don’t have our plans and goals in place. Now is a good time to start thinking about 2012 and what steps you need to take now to assure that you start 2012 with your plans and goals in place instead of the calendar managing you.

The Cost of "Tangibility" & Becoming a (Virtually) Paperless Environment

Posted by Nicole Vierzba on Thu, Aug 18, 2011

We all do it.  We hit “Print” and put an electronic document into a paper file. It’s tangible; we can touch it; we know it’s there. But why not hit “Save” and put that same document into an electronic file?  The electronic file doesn’t take up space on a desk or in a cabinet.  The electronic file doesn’t get stained by an errant pen or leaky coffee cup.  Heck, the electronic file even organizes itself.  So why do we hit “Print”?  Because most of us (or our bosses) are more comfortable with paper.  With tangibility.
