ASA Northeast Keynote Presentation - Manage Promises, Not People
Speaker: Eric Papp
Most organizations are distracted remodeling the kitchen when there are cracks in the foundation that are going unattended. Author, speaker and consultant Eric Papp will talk to ASA Northeast attendees about creating a culture of ownership and personal accountability, increasing power by managing a promise and not a person, strengthening communication and trust by fostering “healthy conflict” in meetings and improving organization performance by raising and reinforcing three standards of behavior. Eric focuses on simplifying leadership to guide attendees through successfully building a self-managing team and increasing productivity. He will challenge attendees to examine and raise their standards of behavior and have more powerful conversations with those they lead and create a culture of ownership.
