Ever hear the phrase “great world manager?” I didn’t think so; the phrase we hear of course is “great world leader.” What’s the difference between a manager and a leader? They are too numerous to list them all but here are just a few: managers steer the ship, leaders set the course, managers see things as they are, leaders see things as they could be, managers simply manage people, leaders develop more leaders. One other very important difference: managers force the compliance of their people while leaders earn the commitment of their people.

So, which one are you, a manager or a leader? The Five Levels of Leadership is all about answering that question and helping you become the leader that you must become to grow your business in today’s increasingly competitive environment.

In this fast moving session, we discuss the five distinct levels or stages of leadership and help you identify where you’re at with each of your employees.

If your responsibilities include the development of people within your organization than this is a presentation you can’t afford to miss. This session has the potential to put you in the fast lane to greater success and profitability, to help reduce the stress of leading people and dealing with problems.

There is wide array of new technology to optimize our consumption and move to being environmental assets to our communities. Labor is also a significant part of the costs that are a part of maintaining a club. We will discuss how all the development on autonomous vehicles will impact this market.
