Distracting Financial Times Call for a Focused Leader.
During these distracting financial times, organizations need focused leaders to navigate through the storm to success. Today's economy is challenging business leaders to take command of their ship like never before - from the capital and liquidity crisis challenging the financial sector to government actions and reactions to the car industry, to the sharp decline and historic weekly gains in the stock market - how do you contend with all the external and internal factors challenging you and your decision-making and what do your decisions say about you as a leader?
Distinguished keynote speaker Robert Sarver will deliver a colorful and insightful message on his focus - staying the course and leading his banking franchise and NBA basketball team, the Phoenix Suns, given all the distractions in today's business environment.
