The New Year passed 10 days ago.  Did you use the turn of the calendar as an opportunity to ask this important question?   Are you getting ahead, or falling behind?

We all have expectations about what we wanted in our lives by ‘what age.’  Some wear those expectations on their sleeves, others bury them in their souls.  Most people credit friends and family for shaping them…others point out intimate conversations with Good Leaders who opened their eyes to new possibilities.

I’m so pleased to announce the Good Leadership Breakfast for 2012. Your intense interest and strong words of encouragement were too much to ignore. So, we have a wonderful dance-card  to stretch your vision of what’s possible for you.

Our Spring 2012 Series will feature speakers centered around the theme Personal and Professional Planning; embracing and celebrating the Seven Fs; Faith, Family, Finances, Fitness, Friends, Fun and Future.

February 17: Dave Kansas, COO of American Public Media, will share his story: “How the arts made me the leader I  am today.”
March 16: Sam Richter, best selling author and founder of Know More, will share his thoughts on: “How genuine appreciation can grow your life and career.”
April 27: Scott Anderson, CEO of Patterson Companies, will share his personal insights: “Why the learning never stops, a glimpse into my development journey.”
May 18: Sue Mulkern, CHRO of Optum Health, will share: “How my personal convictions help shape work/life wellness at Optum Health.”

Again this year, Minnesota Valley Country Club is our home.  You’ll find a wonderful breakfast buffet, compelling networking and extraordinary food for thought around the Seven Fs.  This year we are proud to announce Minnesota Business magazine as our media sponsor, The Discovery Forum and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans as our Series Sponsors.

Tickets will go on sale Tuesday, January 17 — and will be limited to the first 100 people registered for each breakfast.

Good leaders go out of their way to expand their horizons — personally and professionally. We hope you consider joining us for the Good Leadership Breakfast — it’s the place where Good Leaders get together with good intentions, to make great things possible!

Now, back to our premise: drop me a quick note and tell me…are you getting ahead, or falling behind — I’d love to know why.  Seize the day!
