Good to Great Management: The Road Ahead - Virtual Learning

Why Attend

What really distinguishes a good organization from a great one is its performance in tough times. Great organizations maintain a growth pattern even when the economy is down, competition is fierce, and the market is slow. Studies of great and not-so-great organizations have allowed us to identify the attributes of the great ones. These attributes revolve mainly around leadership, organizational culture, strategic choices, adaptability, and people attitude. Join us in this truth-revealing workshop to be able to lead your organization along the path of greatness.
