Webinar: How Midsized Companies Can Create a Mighty Leadership Team

Wednesday, November 8, 2017.  10:00am – 11:00am Pacific Time.   A Mighty Webinar.

At the core of the most successful midsized companies is a stellar leadership team. With such a “mighty team” in place, a midsized firm can deliver profitable growth, year after year, in good times and bad. However, when even one member of the team is dysfunctional, a midsized company can’t hope to have a mighty team. They don’t have the luxury of a large leadership team to support weak links in the executive chain.  This webinar is drawn from four of the chapters of Robert Sher’s book, Mighty Midsized Companies: How Leaders Overcome 7 Silent Growth Killers.

Webinar: Optimizing Performance with Leadership Infrastructure

Wednesday, October 4, 2017  10:00am – 11:00am Pacific Time.   A Mighty Webinar.

Many companies capture their strategies in a strategic plan and develop a budget for where the money should go. They might even have some form of a business plan. But sometimes during the year things don’t get done; money is unspent or misspent; the urgent overtakes the important. Having a strategy and a budget isn’t enough—there is a gap.

ROI presents a Webinar- My Boss Sucks At Accountability: Now What?

Wednesday, September 27, 2017.   10:00am – 11:00am Pacific Time.  Resource Options International presents Mighty Webinar.

Countless managers and executives get fed up with their boss, who seems incapable of holding their peers accountable for getting things done.  Some bosses might be too nice.  Others fear conflict, and either never do anything, or do nothing until they blow up in anger.  The business suffers along with every productive employee.

Contrast this with high-performing teams, where every team member feels accountable to every other teammate, and where the boss rarely must play the “heavy”. Where the most important projects get done on time and team members admit mistakes openly, ask each other for help and receive it.

Robert Sher presents workshop: Building and Maintaining a High-Performance Environment

For the last 12 years, Gallup polls consistently indicate that more than two-thirds of employees at U.S. companies are not motivated to be productive. They are either “not engaged” or “actively disengaged.” Even more important, companies with high “employee engagement” financially outperform those with low engagement. Clearly, low morale is widespread – and costly.

DCA hosts: Growing from Meek to Mighty

Midsized Companies Growing from Meek to Mighty  followed by a Distinguished Panel Discussion

Growing through acquisition is an enticing prospect for many mid-market companies. Their leaders dream of adding millions of dollars to the top line with a single stroke of the pen. Buying companies can be an awesome growth tactic, but only when the right acquirer with the right team buys the right company at the right price.  At least half the time, it isn’t all right, and then the acquisition can be a noxious growth killer.

Webinar: Realizing Double Benefits from Your Family Business

Wednesday, June 21, 2017  10:00am – 11:00am PDT.   A Mighty Webinar.

Midsized businesses do not have it easy in their effort to produce sustainable financial results. But family owned & led midsized businesses ask still more of their businesses—to produce non-monetary benefits for the family. This additional demand places a higher burden on such businesses, requiring better and more disciplined leadership.

Avoiding Deadly Lethargy

Midsized companies with laser market focus and rapid execution capabilities can outrun bigger and smaller foes alike.  Yet many midsized firms bog down, with projects taking months longer than planned, teams that get more excited about the free lunch than delivering high performance and confusion grips the firm at many levels.
