Getting Unstuck: How to Unlock and Activate the Insights of Others
Wednesday, May 6, 2020
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Please join the WNG when we meet with Craig Lemasters, author, entrepreneur, investor, and board member, who will discuss with us how leaders can get UNSTUCK, enabling them (you!) to take action with confidence and deliver meaningful results.
Craig's wisdom-based learning methodology is uniquely positioned to help leaders and their organizations successfully navigate this time of change. His positive message about intentionally connecting with others and seeking ways to help, is relevant now more than ever. The model he teaches can easily be deployed remotely in this new virtual world in which we operate.
His approach to getting unstuck focuses on tapping into the right sources of external wisdom – a unique combination of knowledge and experience around a specific topic. He used this same process when he was stuck as a CEO and has since helped countless other organizations find their own missing wisdom.
Craig starts - big picture - by introducing our audience to his four needle movers. He believes these imperatives can materially impact the trajectory of an organization, if implemented properly. Then he drills down into the key steps to getting unstuck. Participants leave with a tangible process they can immediately apply within their own organizations to increase wisdom and accelerate execution behind key strategic initiatives.
Specific takeaways from this discussion will include a deeper understanding of how to:
1. Identify wisdom gaps: Recognize the specific wisdom gaps that are holding you back from confident decision-making;
2. Find the operators: Find external operators that have the right combination of knowledge and experience to help;
3. Extract relevant insights: Intentionally engage the operators in conversations to gain practical insights that will guide your execution.
