In 2011, with short notice, Navy SEAL Team Six (DEVGRU) was deployed on a mission to apprehend Osama bin Laden. This elite fighting force was the frontline force in Operation Neptune Spear–made famous through the film, Zero Dark Thirty, and the book, No Easy Day. At all levels in the operation–from the SEAL Team and the flight crews to the White House and CIA, there was effective strategic and tactical planning and execution, agility within teams and rapid decision making. This program interactively teaches how this moment in history can improve leadership capabilities, decision making and team performance.
Through a mix of hands-on exercises, film clips, and techniques, Bill Fournet will show a new way to lead your teams, better manage risks and assumptions, and apply lessons learned for your teams immediately. You will learn how to evolve your leadership capabilities to become more agile and adaptive to the ever-changing business needs in a disciplined organization. These techniques may be applied to teams, large and small.
Are you proactively seeking ways that your organization can yield competitive advantages from today’s technological and social changes?
Current constructs of work, how we measure productivity “success”, and how we develop a “career”, are all in flux. Between economic challenges and generational drivers, how long an employee stays with a company continues to shrink. A vast number of professionals are choosing temporary work, a concept coined “The Rise of the Super-Temp”. How should we respond to these significant transitions in business? The rise in social technology and the demand for workers with a unique set of skills tells us that younger employees who are technologically reliant, and older employees who are rich in experience, can present managers with challenges that can prove successful for business – if developed correctly.
Bill Fournet’s thought-provoking presentation will address these issues that are prevalent in the ever-changing business world today. Whether you are a newcomer, manager or executive, you will leave this session empowered to understand and harness the future of work to benefit your organization.
