Mclean, United States
Are you overwhelmed by the ringing phone, piles of emails and text messages, endless deadlines?
Do you want to find a way to stop being so reactive?
Are you frustrated, feeling like you're on a treadmill?
Do you go from fire fight to fire fight?
Tom Cooper with BrightHill Group (brighthillgroup.com) will lead an interactive program which will help participants identify simple steps towards the achievement of powerful goals.
We will talk about:
- Keys to reducing busy-ness
- Keys to finding focus beyond the current fire
You will leave with at least two new ideas about planning and priorities. You will scale down your frustrations and begin to focus on what is wildly important.
We hope to see you there!

What Tom Cooper says
I believe that because people matter, we must lead them well. Over my career in industry, I’ve watched bosses struggle with leadership. I’ve been one of those bosses trying to figure out what to do to get my team to perform.
Once I discovered that leadership is learnable and that I could choose to invest in in learning how to do it, it made all the difference in my team performance. I went from being clueless and disorganized to having a team really function as a team. One of my team members once told me “after you left, it was like you took the magic with you.” The beautiful thing is that it’s not magic and it’s not me – it’s the application of leadership principles. You can do this, too!
Prior to our featured presentation, SalesLab will lead the Rainmaker segment of the evening. This month these 300 seconds will be dedicated to the subject "Foamball Innovation - The easy way to speed up development".
