Purpose at Work Summit
Join Northeast Ohio business leaders for a full-day design workshop where you and your team will go beyond learning and dialogue, towards implementation - of new ideas, initiatives and approaches for employee engagement.
Using the Appreciative Inquiry 4-D Cycle, an innovative approach to large group collaboration, participants will spend the first half of the day spreading the best ideas and real world examples, followed by an afternoon of designing initiatives, action steps and commitments around their own employee engagement priorities.
Participants are encouraged to bring a team of leaders:
• The opportunity to work together to develop a unified plan to elevate employee engagement
• The more team members involved, the opportunity for post-event implementation increases exponentially
• More team members means a larger repository of ideas and perspectives
Keynote Speaker: Jeff Hoffman, Entrepreneur and innovator in the fields of Internet, e- commerce, and entertainment
We're incredibly fortunate to have Jeff's passion and insight to share at the Summit. Among the topics he will cover, Jeff will describe how purpose and engagement have led to one of the greatest entrepreneurial stories in history.
Jeff is a founder/partner in ColorJar, a venture accelerator firm that helps entrepreneurs and small business owners launch and grow new business ventures. In this capacity, Jeff works as a virtual CEO with startup companies worldwide. He previously served as the CEO of Enable Holdings, Inc., an international leader among excess inventory solutions companies. Enable Holdings, a publicly traded company, operates online sites uBid. com and RedTag.com. and has sold more than $2 billion worth of consumer goods since its launch.
Hoffman is perhaps best known as a founder and CEO in the Priceline.com family of companies, where Jeff led the development and launch of Pricelines consumer company (Priceline YardSale). Hoffman also served as an executive in Walker Digital, the parent company of Priceline and one of the countrys most innovative creators of intellectual property and new business models.
Using the Appreciative Inquiry 4-D Cycle, this event will be facilitated by Flourishing Leadership Institute
"Appreciative Inquiry focuses us on the positive aspects of our lives and leverages them to correct the negative. It's the opposite of problem-solving." Thomas W. White, President, GTE Telephone Operations.
