Stupid Things Leaders Do – A Guide to Not Ruining your Culture!

Lunch Presentation Description:
Want to know the first step toward creating a great business culture? Step 1: Stop being stupid! No leader is perfect, but far too many leaders today are hamstringing the success of their organizations by thinking and acting in ways that are damaging their culture. Being a brilliant leader is challenging; but we can learn to stop doing stupid things in an afternoon. There’s great ROI on the latter, so let’s leave the self-actualization for another day, eat the low-hanging fruit, and watch our work cultures shine!

Brett Hoogeveen & Blake Hoogeveen (Hō’ gə vēēn) – Joint Speaker Bio/Intro
Brett and Blake Hoogeveen are brothers and co-owners of MindSet, a leadership training and consulting firm that spun out of Omaha, Nebraska’s five-time #1 Best Place to Work. They are passionate about helping leaders create work cultures that attract, build, motivate, and retain great employees. Brett and Blake work regionally as trainers, consultants, coaches, and speakers. Their core message: Better Culture = Better Business.

Workshop Presentation Description:
Following the keynote presentation, workshop participants will be asked to reflect on the “stupid things” outlined in the lunch presentation. Participants will discuss in small groups any opportunities for improvement their organizations may have related to the keynote presentation. Following the breakout discussions, participants will be asked to share the practical takeaways from their discussions. The presenters will facilitate a conversation on the topics of greatest interest to the group, while interjecting candid and practical insights business leaders can use to overcome doing “stupid things” to build a winning culture and achieve lasting business success!
