Introvert Power: Why Quiet Leaders are Successful

CPE: 1

Field of Study: Business Management & Organization

Presenter: Don Minges, MBA, The Knowledge Institute, LLC

Description: Leaders were once chosen for their character but today we live in an age where loudmouthed extroverts seem to take center stage in everything, including business, politics and entertainment. While the talkative, charismatic leader makes the front page of business magazines, recent research shows that successful business leaders tend to be more reserved, pensive and sometimes outright shy. Learn why your desire to spend significant time inside your own head may be your greatest asset.

Risk Management in a Post-COVID World

CPE: 1

Field of Study: Auditing

Presenter: John L. Daly, MBA, CPA,CMA, CPIM, Executive Education, Inc.

Description: With each new crisis, surviving organizations revise their risk management plans, often modeling situations which look like the one just past. Whatever crisis troubles your organization next, it is not likely to be another pandemic, but may resemble some other crisis from the distant past. Research shows that top performing organizations do no better than their mediocre-performing peers at predicting the next crisis. However, because have plans in place to handle one possible risk, they are better prepared when a different crisis happens as a result of having important elements of a solution in place. Often well-prepared organizations actually end up better off because the crisis occurred.

Lessons in Leadership: Confessions of a Mompreneur

CPE: 1

Field of Study: Business Management & Organization

Presenter: Sherr‚ L. DeMao, CGS, BizGrowth, Inc.
