While technical skills may get you promoted to an executive level, they will not keep you there for long if you don’t have the maturity, reasoning and people skills required to perform at a top level. The World Economic Forum Future of Jobs Report lists 10 key skills that you will need for 2030. This event will help build your skills in four of them.

Designed For

This seminar is for those who serve or aspire to serve their organizations at an executive level.


This seminar includes group discussion of at least five case studies.

Major Subjects

Managing People: Conquering the Soft Side of Your Job
  • You probably became a financial professional because you were good with numbers, not because you wanted a job that dealt with people. Yet, your ability to turn your staff’s talents into performance will determine whether you succeed or fail as a corporate executive. This session will give you better insights into developing your people and elevating your own management skills to the highest level.  
Principled Negotiations: Getting to Yes
  • According to negotiation guru Chester Karrass, “In business as in life, you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate.” Every transaction between two individuals is a negotiation. Often we view negotiations as a competition with one side “winning” and the other “losing.” Principled negotiation is a better method that seeks to create agreements that are more than the sum of their parts. This session will examine best negotiation practices, providing participants with ways to “get to yes” faster and build lasting relationships. 
Critical Thinking for Financial Professionals
  • What were they thinking? Why do business leaders sometimes make horrible decisions that severely damage themselves and their organizations? It is tempting to assume that a poor choice must be due to a leader’s incompetence, inexperience, bad character, or low intelligence – but such easily attributed factors generally aren’t the true cause when leaders blunder. In such situations, many rely on the critical thinking skills of finance and accounting professionals for evaluation, answers, remedies, and solutions for improved future decision-making.
Teambuilding: Create a Cohesive Team
  • Teambuilding is the ultimate management skill both because strong, capable teams are so rare. Why do some teams produce and win, while others fail? What do great team leaders do that make the team a success? Whether you run the executive staff of a multinational company, a small department within a large organization, or you are a member of a team that needs improving, we will share proven techniques to enhance teamwork.
