Make or Break Execution—The Core of Success

Execution Expert Dan Barnett to Speak at Vistage NYC on April 7—for C Level Executives.

The best leaders have both a clear vision and an eye for the operating detail that will make or break that vision. Lack of vision will result in a business that spins its wheels. And yet even the best vision will go nowhere in the face of poor execution. The big struggle for most leaders is how to do both.

How do you actively lead your organization to insure superb execution of your vision without being consumed by the details and the urgent “alligators” you face daily?

This interactive workshop, to be held on Thursday, April 7, presents a highly effective and easy-to-implement process for keeping your company’s performance on track to your vision all the time. First you will learn how to change your company’s perspective to be truly forward looking rather than relying on the usual backwards facing lens of income statements and other common financial reports. You will learn how to focus your management team on the things that will deliver your revenue and profit goals – year in and year out – missing major goals is for the most part avoidable. You will learn how to ensure constant innovation in your company. And you will learn how to be in the middle of it all – actively linking together people, strategy, and operating detail – doing the real job of an effective leader.

Areas covered include:

  • Forward facing dashboards: staying ahead of the game with facts and data
  • Plan performance: achieving growth goals year in and year out
  • Staying on course: making course corrections in real time
  • Teamwork: keeping everyone accountable and on the same page
  • Innovation: creating fresh ideas everyday
  • Recognition: making it a way of life
