“Success That Lasts: Creating Real Worth in a World of Never Enough”
Of course you need the tools to run a successful business, but first a critical benchmark…. what is success? It’s a complicated question and even harder when your personal definitions and the culture’s don’t match…and they usually don’t. Few high achievers thrive and survive today’s celebrity success model, nor do their businesses.
Using concepts from her Harvard Business Review article (to be distributed), and book, Just Enough, Laura will discuss how and why current business assumptions can derail the very success thoughtful leaders seek. Based on her extensive research of CEOs and their values, she will walk through the four key elements of lasting success and a “kaleidoscope” model for intelligently applying these concepts to some of the greatest hazards and ideals of business life.
