Calgary Business Epics Breakfast - January 10th, 2017
Tue, 10 January 2017, 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM MST
A Simple Strategy to Grow a Remarkable Business in Any Field.
This month's book: The Pumpkin Plan by Mike Michalowicz
Imagine you want to buy a pumpkin; you see stands and fields full of pumpkins that all look kind of the same.
Until you run into a true GIANT pumpkin. You know, the ones that are bigger than your kids.
These giant pumpkins are bigger, they’re healthier, they draw attention to their remarkable success. But these giant pumpkins don’t happen by chance. In fact, you have to follow a very different approach to get a giant!
If businesses are like pumpkins, then most of them are plain everyday pumpkins. Some of them are rotting on the vine, but most of them are doing fine.
They’re just unremarkable.
And being unremarkable is a sure recipe for never ending grind, minimal profits and a slow decline hoping nothing goes wrong.
If you don’t want to be unremarkable, then you have to start doing things differently – which is the core idea behind The Pumpkin Plan.
Includes breakfast. Seating is limited.
Business Epics: For leaders who refuse to accept the status quo.
Most leaders know they’re meant for more. Maybe you’re one of them. You aspire to play your best game and build something special, something meaningful. Your company is much more than the average business…. It’s an expression of who you are and the impact you long to make!
But with so many competing priorities clamoring for your time and attention, your personal growth and development often take a back seat. You try to do the best you can with what you have, but deep down you know there are gaps in your leadership. These deficiencies are limiting your results and impacting your organization in a negative way.
You know you should be investing more in your leadership development, but where do you find the time when it’s already in very short supply? So in spite of your best intentions, you’re not growing like you need to, and you risk getting stuck in a rut going nowhere fast.
Business Epics was created for leaders just like you. These breakfast events focus on the best books that have shaped business and leadership in a significant way and how their genius can impact your life and the organization you lead.
Every month, like-minded leaders gather for a two-hour breakfast meeting that distils the core message of one of these “Business Epics”, and focuses on how you can apply that message to your unique situation.
You will get to know other leaders who are on a similar journey. You will learn the next practices that are changing the face of business. And you will leave with clear action steps you will take to play your best game.
By now you know it’s time to take action and become the leader you’re meant to be.
