- Find your business edge--stretch in an unexpected, extreme way.
- Embolden your team--champion innovation at every organizational level.
- Understand why "safe" isn't safe--today may already be obsolete.
- Get something cookin'--ignite the fun of achievement again.
- Apply inspirational, relatable client examples--make a difference.
- Get to the future on time--pinpoint what to do differently tomorrow.
