    Sylvia Henderson, Implementation Strategist / Idea MindTeam Facilitator / Author / Speaker, SylviaHenderson.com

    Whether in business for yourself, working alone in a remote office, or at the top of your corporate ladder, when you just have yourself to bounce ideas off of, solve issues, or innovate and pivot, you only get what YOU can muster. MORE >

    “No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.” This quotation, by Napoleon Hill from his book "Think and Grow Rich" lays the foundation for a multitude of mastermind and advisory groups. Drawn from this foundation, Sylvia Henderson, CEO of MindTeam Solutions Inc., defines and describes what constitutes the power of the 3rd mind and shares how you can put the mastermind concept into practice for professional, business, and personal growth.

    Your take-aways will help you both consider implementing a new business service in your own business or professional environment as well as potentially benefit you yourself should you choose to form - or be a member of - an entrepreneur, leadership, or executive team mastermind.

  • Do You Have the Right People in the Right Seats?

    Dawn Shuler, CEO and Founder, The Shuler Group, LLC

    Many organizations hire solely based on the candidate's skills and experience. However, the employee will be more productive and be a better fit for the company culture if there's a match between the person's career/position and his or her personality. MORE >

    According to Gallup, 77% of employees who know what their company stands for and what makes it different from competitors strongly agree that they plan to be with the company for at least one year. From a study conducted by IBM, 80% of employees felt more engaged when their work was consistent with the core values and mission of their organization.

    The best employees are those that are an ideal fit with the organization, and that means in terms of the company, the culture, other employees, and values.

    We believe that the ideal candidate and employee is one for whom there is an alignment with all the above, as well as the position/job description itself.

    How do you know if there's a fit between the company and the hiring candidate or even existing team members or employees?

    In this workshop, participants will:

    - Learn how to uncover the company's Deeper Why
    - Discover a method for determining a candidate's and employee's value system
    - Explore a simple tool to evaluate whether you truly have the right people in the right seats
