SCC February luncheon
February 18, 11:15am-1pm, The Plateau Club
Members: $30     Non-Members: $35

Topic: “Your Reluctant Leader is Costing you Money”

“Why don’t my employees want to be in charge, take initiative, or lead by example?”

These common complaints shared behind closed doors are a symptom that the organization suffers from the ‘Turtle Disorder.’ A turtle tucks its head into its protective shell whenever it perceives danger. In many organizations, the employee who you want to be a change agent, lead a task force, and take initiative is simply acting like a turtle – hiding from danger.

Turtle Disorder_small

Speaker: Ron Rael, The High Road Institute   

Our speaker is a leadership provocateur who describes why your employees or members believe that being influential and taking charge is a negative burden rather than a positive experience.

This leadership consultant and author explores the fears that foster the Turtle Disorder and will deliver several ways that you can turn the fearful employee into a courageous everyday leader.
