Upcoming Meeting

January 11, 2019

Opening Discussion Topic:

Ensuring You Have the RIGHT Direct Reports Now, and in the Future

Ensuring the “right” direct reports due to businesses changes, including new requirements from customers or regulators, or to take a company to the next level can be challenging. Particularly in a hot talent market – like the one we’re in now.  As we move ahead with plans for 2019 and beyond, sharpening our focus on having the right direct reports, could make a big difference in our results.  After a brief context-setting presentation for this discussion, we’ll ask the Group to share what new types of direct reports, or replacements, they are considering for the coming year, and beyond. We’ll also ask how they are planning to attract and retain them and to comment on each other’s approaches for attracting and retaining the direct reports they’re seeking near term, and longer term.

As always, we’ll look to hear and discuss “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?” During this time, each person is given an opportunity to share an “issue” with the Group in order to receive knowledgeable and confidential feedback on how best to tackle that issue. Issues often center around: management/planning concerns, how to best respond to new industry trends, fleshing out a new strategy, what were the best practices used (or hazards) from fellow Members who have dealt with a similar issue. In order to get the most value from each session, we encourage the Group to bring an issue for discussion to each meeting.

We’ll also be serving as Strategic Advisory Board Members to our Featured Member Presenter:

Rick Anderson, President and COO of Catasys, Inc.
