Growth Strategies for Business Leaders
Why is profitable growth so hard to achieve and sustain? Most executives manage their companies as if the solution to that problem lies in the external environment — find an attractive market, formulate the right strategy, and win new customers.
But when Chris Zook, author of the best-selling Profit from the Core, researched this question, he found that when companies fail to achieve their growth targets, 90 percent of the time the root causes are internal, not external — increasing distance from the front lines, loss of accountability, and proliferating processes and bureaucracy, to name only a few resulting negatives.
In this live, interactive HBR webinar, Zook will lay out how the roots of success or failure increasingly lie in the ability of companies to remain fast, perceptive, innovative, and adaptable. Internally thriving companies can respond to shifts in their competitive environments, identifying — and executing — strategies that sustain their dominance.
The discussion will include how to: ..... Keep an insurgent’s clear mission and purpose ..... Use the power of 10X — a willingness to commit 10 times the normal resources — on a company’s critical, game-changing capabilities ..... Develop next-generation leaders ..... Plan and prepare for what will be the next-generation business models.

Coaching is a Management Must: What’s at stake when managers don’t coach—and how to turn the tide
Workplace coaching is gaining momentum. What was once considered a fad is quickly becoming a fundamental. But is it having an impact? HR.com, in partnership with InsideOut Development, recently conducted a survey of over 600 HR professionals to understand how leader-led conversations, i.e. coaching, is influencing employee performance and organizational success. Are leaders holding frequent coaching conversations? And if they are, what kind of outcomes are organizations experiencing as a result?
There are multiple factors driving the workplace coaching movement and the need to have more frequent, quality conversations with employees including an influx of younger workers, steep competition for top-tier talent, and the desire to revamp outdated and ineffective performance management systems.
However, while leaders tout coaching as a must-have skill, relatively few of today’s managers are good coaches. If organizations hope to win over the next generation, giving leaders the skills to coach effectively has to be at the top of their to-do list.
In this webinar, you will learn how workplace coaching is trending in today’s top organizations. Has its popularity peaked or will it continue to be a priority over the next 12-18 months? You will also explore the coaching behaviors leaders are good at exhibiting, the ones they struggle to master, and the functional teams that are most likely to benefit from manager-as-coach programs. But most importantly, this webinar will show you the positive, measurable impact leader-led coaching can have on every employee’s engagement, productivity, and performance.
Join Greg Edwards, Director of Digital Marketing at InsideOut Development, as he discusses the results from the survey and how they may apply to your organization.

Leading with Emotional Intelligence
Why does emotional intelligence (EI) matter? Because at the core of every outstanding leader are the abilities to connect, achieve, inspire and act with resilience.
Emotional intelligence has evolved from an area of research to a recognized set of best practices and core competencies that are at the heart of successful leadership. Today we use EI as an integrated set of skills that underpin highly effective, fast-reacting, and innovative organizations.
This webcast offers you a powerful introduction to the highly popular hands-on AMA seminar, Leading with Emotional Intelligence.
To give a real sense of EI in practice, we’ll take a deep look at how EI drives and facilitates your ability to lead collaboration. You’ll also learn about the F.L.I.P. Modes of Conversation as a “must have” tool for collaboration and relationship enhancement.
If you want to become the consummate emotionally intelligent leader, this webcast is a great place to start.

Saving the Family Businesses
Family businesses are critical, but they struggle to survive long term. Consider that: ..... An estimated 80% of global businesses are family-owned ..... Family-owned businesses are responsible for 60% of total US employment and generate 78% of all new jobs ..... However, approximately 70% of family-owned businesses only last one generation.
Deborah Bell, in a Harvard Business Review article on family businesses, shared research that looked at the corporate governance and board practices of family-owned businesses in comparison with non-family-owned businesses. This research reviewed the need for improvement in several areas, including: ..... The skills and selection of board members ..... Succession planning ..... Diversity.
