Register here for the 2022 Auxano Summit in Columbus, Georgia September 27-29 2022 and Houston, Texas, October 18-20 2022.
Why: High speed leaders want to get better, connect with other high-speed leaders, and be recharged to reengage in the fight! They ultimately recognize …
· Leadership is critical. While it is often used as a buzzword, “leadership” truly is the separator between organizations. Our people depend on us to be our best. Leadership must navigate alignment, selection, development, and championship execution.
· Leadership is hard – especially in today’s ever-changing environment. Leadership is complex, uncertain, and oftentimes very lonely. Today’s landscape only makes it that much more challenging.
· Most approaches to leadership development miss the mark. The typical formula consists of information downloads, theoretical topics, and a one-size-fits-all approach. High speed people need high speed development experiences, which Auxano provides.
Who: 40 targeted impact leaders who are …
1. High-speed – can contribute significant expertise and experience to the conversation
2. Humble and hungry – want to learn and grow themselves (NOTE: If you are not sure if you meet the first criteria, then you belong!)
3. Cross-functional and cross-cultural – diverse experiences and perspectives from different worlds of sport, business, military, education, etc.
How: Iron sharpens Iron – where we facilitate wrestling with some key questions, shared and open dialogue, and collaborative learning in various settings.
We have facilitated numerous powerful development experiences for leaders over the last 10 years by targeting the right people and then facilitating the right conversations. Auxano, Kyle Stark's (Stark Contrast) brain child, began out of our efforts with the Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Team to get elite people around each other, build relationships, and further develop our culture leading to turn the franchise around going from averaging 95 losses per year before his arrival to being in the top 10 in wins over nine years - while having the third-lowest payroll, breaking a 20-season losing streak, earning Baseball America's Organization of the Year, and building a top-ranked development system. It continues to grow and modify to the needs of marketplace leaders today. Anthony (Vanguard XXI) has taught and trained over 14,000 leaders in transformational leadership to include spending 8 seasons with Kyle and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
We create an open environment, encouraging people to truly wrestle with some topics, and then solidifying some key tiebacks and take-aways. There will be a combination of relevant ice-breakers, small group breakout sessions, large group tieback sessions, and potentially some targeted panels facilitated by you, the Auxano Leader.
Together we will solve the world’s problems – or at least a few burning questions related to world-class leadership and culture. Our discussions will focus on elite culture; character; creating alignment; all things talent – assessment, selection, development, and retainment; navigating tension; dealing with current challenges; transforming communities; and helping our people physically, mentally, and spiritually. However, we will ultimately focus our time on the questions you have and want to tackle.
Where: Columbus, Georgia @ the National Infantry Museum September 27-29 2022 / Houston, TX, Location TBD, October 18-20 2022.
When: 6:00 pm on Tuesday – 12:00 pm on Thursday.
(Session 1 – Tuesday evening, Session 2 – Wednesday morning, Session 3 – Wednesday afternoon, and Session 4 – Friday morning, with fellowship time in the evenings)
