Coming in April: What You Need to Know

head-with-flowers-Mark-AndersonNo April Fool’s jokes from us this year. Instead we’re offering you a month filled with top-shelf learning, master classes with some of the brightest minds in careers, business, and leadership development.

Here’s what’s scheduled for this month’s programing of ExecuNet Master Class:

How to Find a New Executive Job While You’re Employed

Looking for an executive-level position when you already have one is a challenging task, one which must be handled with great care. Join us for another session of ExecuNet Master Class in which Mitch Wienick, the CEO of Kelleher Associates, Philadelphia’s Premier Career Transition and Executive Coaching firm, and the former CEO and Director of CDI Corporation (NYSE:CDI), will be addressing executives who are seriously considering leaving their current roles. He will explain the initial steps you should take to launch your search; how to proactively prepare for your departure; what you need to say to your family when you start your campaign; how to effectively manage questions from colleagues and management who may become aware of your search; and common concerns of in-role executives contemplating a change.

As an active Board member who now works with executives in transition, and a former public company CEO, Mitch can help you find your next great career adventure.

Why and How to Buy a Franchise: An Exciting Alternative to a Corporate Career

Are you in career transition? Unsatisfied with your corporate job? Tired of letting other people control your life? Dreaming of becoming an entrepreneur? Frustrated with investment options for your available capital that don’t provide you with a solid return?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this session of ExecuNet Master Class is designed to help you  reach your career and personal goals. Led by Pete Gilfillan, international best-selling author of HIRE YOURSELF and nationally recognized FranChoice Franchise Consultant, you will learn why franchise ownership is becoming the career path of choice for executives looking to escape the corporate world and take back control of their lives.  He will show you how franchising works, how to determine if franchising is the right option for your unique circumstances, and how to find your ideal franchise business through a tried-and-true, seven-step selection process.

Closing the Strategy-Execution Gap

Poor execution of strategy is one of the top reasons CEOs lose their jobs, but you can avoid the pitfalls most organizations are facing.

Drawing on the latest research and case study examples, Kristine Gunn, Senior Human Capital Consultant with Insperity, will shed light on why execution is more important than many leaders realize, and how organizations can make the right choices to build a workforce that gets results. In this Master Class session, Kristine will offer a seven-step roadmap that will guide you to clarify purpose, align goals and priorities, eliminate bottlenecks and foster a culture that takes strategy execution from theory to practice to achieve competitive advantage.

Work Smarter, Not Harder! New Ideas, A New Lens

You have too much to do. Only you can do it… and it’s all critical. Sound familiar?

So many executives feel this way, but you don’t have to! Join Bill Jensen, Mr. Simplicity himself, for a session of ExecuNet Master Class designed to show you brilliant, quick-hit tips for working smarter, getting everything done and keeping yourself and your team sane. Bill has spent the past 25 years studying simpler ways to get things done. He’s uncovered the secrets you need to know! At the conclusion of this session, you will be able to basically double your productivity and deliver more value to your bosses and teammates.

As the President of a company dedicated to executive education, I can tell you these offerings are exciting for me and promise to be can’t-miss events!

I plan to attend them all and invite you to join me!
