No Dumbing Down™: Leading Your Organization Or Team For Growth

Whether you’re with a start-up or long-time established company, you may be experiencing a particularly disturbing problem: that is, you’ve made big promises to the marketplace, but things aren’t working the way you know they could. Producing what you should be producing is more difficult than you expected. You and your teams are working far too hard. What’s causing these bottlenecks? It all boils down to one word: execution. You’re not executing up to your capabilities. In this keynote or workshop, execution-and-growth expert Karen Walker will show you strategies – including how to avoid “teamwork-as-usual” – so you can handle tough situations and pump up your ability to scale.

This topic can be tailored for keynote or workshop.
