As an outgrowth of our second annual Leadership Conference, we are planning three follow-up Strategic Doing workshops over 3 days in June. We are collaborating with the Purdue Center for Regional Development to provide these workshops to civic and community leaders in the High Tech Corridor (the HTC, i.e. the Tampa Bay and Central Florida super-region).
Save the Dates: June 25-27.
Workshop 1: Strategic Doing: The Game
Workshop 2: Learning Innovation
Workshop 3: Angel Investor Acceleration
Peter Drucker famously stated that "management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things." Great leaders possess dazzling social intelligence, a zest for change, and above all, vision that allows them to set their sights on the "things" that truly merit attention.
At Spark Growth success is measured by engagement with a focus on social capital and economic rewards. What happens after an event, after an engagement is where we believe the rubber hits the road and true success can be identified. By these standards, our recent 2014 Regional Leadership Conference shows great promise.
Across the board this changes everything… As each panel faced a variety of topics crucial to our development in a rapidly changing world, they fearlessly tackled the not always comfortable or popular aspects of each discussion.
We have gathered here for you video footage and media including a brief montage of the whole event; testimonials from several sponsors, speakers and attendees; both keynote sessions and the introduction from Jim Stikeleather, Chief Innovation Officer for Dell on leadership and the final session with Hillsborough County Commissioner Mark Sharpe as leaders across counties and sectors commit to move forward on 3 key initiatives.
