As you rise in an organization and your role expands, it is no longer just about winning business or doing the work.  You are responsible to a broader constituency that includes employees, customers and vendors, investors/owners, local communities and society in general.  You help set the strategic future of the organization.  Part of setting successful strategy is creating and perpetuating competitive advantages.  As an inspired leader in the organization, you are one of those competitive advantages. 

What are you doing to establish and enhance yourself as a competitive advantage?   

In this session, Jane-Scott Cantus will lead a discussion on optimizing personal performance for long-term, continuous sustainable results benefitting you, your people and your organization.  Starting with how she sets her mind4TM greater significance, she will guide us through aligning personal performance to strategic objectives, developing a peer advantage and tips for weathering the inevitable headwinds.
