Monday, March 20, 2017
1:00 - 4:30 p.m.
Many people stubbornly procrastinate taking action on their innovative initiatives, believing they will always have tomorrow. The cost of this inaction is great. How can aging services leaders push through mental barriers to approach their work with fierce curiosity? By focusing on identifying core personal, team and organizational passion areas and applying them to the work already underway.
- Discuss ways to spot and avoid the seven “deadly sins” that lead to mediocrity and stagnancy. Embrace a curious mindset and an orientation toward lifelong growth and skill development as core capacities of leaders who make valuable contributions to the world. Learn how to counter aimlessness by defining your goals wisely and building your life around achieving them.

Leadership Workshop: A Blueprint for Successful CEO Transitions
Tuesday, March 21, 2017
12:00 - 3:30 p.m.
High rates of CEO turnover within aging services organizations require that everyone involved in a leadership transition do their due diligence to make it a smooth process, particularly in the first 18 months of a new CEO’s tenure. Geared toward leaders at all levels, this workshop distills the key areas needed to orchestrate a successful CEO transition.
- Consider how a programmatic approach to CEO transitions can increase the odds and shorten the timeframe in which success is likely to be achieved. Delve into the critical areas that require leadership team attention, including defining a vision, securing alignment, establishing accountability and understanding organizational culture. Discuss the importance of leadership team cohesion for the success of the inbound CEO.
