Learn Something New Every Day

upcoming master classesSchools are back in session. For many of us that is in many ways the start of yet another year. No matter how old we may get, no matter if our own children are all grown up, we spent so many years, formative years, thinking of going back to school as the start of a new year that it’s ingrained to think of September as the start of a new year. It certainly is for me.

As an executive learning company, the opportunities to discover and grow never stop here at ExecuNet. We’re committed to bringing you 365 days of education from the world’s best and brightest. As a member, you get something other executives don’t: your own personal network of trusted advisors – CEOs, business school professors, career strategists and renowned business thinkers –to show you, inspire you, and teach you how to make the very best decisions for your career, your work, and your life.

So while we never take a break from our mission to provide you with trusted advice, we too are excited to welcome a new school year and the learning that will come with it. Here’s a look at our upcoming sessions of the acclaimed web series, ExecuNet Master Class:

How to Buy an Existing Business: An Exciting Alternative to Corporate America

Session Leader: Aaron Paul, President of Acquisition Finders

A great way to free yourself from corporate America and to bypass ageism in your job search is to buy your own business. The process of buying a business through traditional channels is inefficient, but in this session of ExecuNet Master Class, you can learn to avoid business-buying roadblocks and strategies for finding the right business at the all-important great price.

Aaron will explain everything you need to know about buying an existing business and will share his experience helping clients find, finance and close the best possible opportunity for their situation.

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

Session Leader: Pete Gilfillan, Nationally Recognized Franchise Consultant

Franchise ownership is becoming the career path of choice for executives looking to escape the corporate world and take back control of their lives.

In this session of ExecuNet Master Class, Pete will show you how franchising works, how to determine if it’s the right option for your unique circumstances, and how to find your ideal franchise business through a tried-and-true, seven-step selection process. It’s an avenue that many executives are pursuing to regain control of their lives and reach their goals.

Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent

Session Leader: Sydney Finkelstein, Director of Dartmouth Business School

Based on 10 years of research and hundreds of interviews, Professor Finkelstein will outline what and how dozens of exceptional leaders of our time helped develop the best talent in their industries to become legendary successes. He will describe the superboss playbook – the key management practices that separate the best bosses from the merely good ones.

You’ll learn how to go from being a good boss to a superboss and how doing so will also help you professionally… help you a lot. After you attend this session you will never go about leading, recruiting, evaluating and developing talent in quite the same way again!

Creating Leaders and Organizations of Greatness

Session Leader: Greg Selker, Retained Executive Search and Leadership Consultant  

Greg Selker has distinguished many of the unrecognized and common conditions that keep so many individuals and organizations from attaining anything other than average performance. He will share with you simple practices that allow one to rise above the conditions of the status-quo and deliver greatness.

This Master Class session will methodically outline the steps anyone can take to achieve vastly superior results within the workplace. You will be left with a how-to guide detailing simple, repeatable steps to develop yourself into a powerful leader with access to tools to build an organization that delivers exceptional results.
