2019 Charlotte Vistage Executive Summit

Hosted in Charlotte Thursday, October 24, 2019 7:15 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.

Event Overview

Change is happening faster than ever.
Make sure you have every advantage.

In our fast-paced world of high-speed technology, few businesses can afford a lax approach to change. High-performing companies are quick, nimble and ready to pounce. They incorporate progressive practices, the latest resources and timely information. They can see around the curves and past their blind spots. They’re not the followers. They are the pacesetters.

And they do not get there on their own.

Join your greater Vistage family and peers to rev up the energy
and kick up your drive at this year’s Vistage Executive Summit.

What is the Vistage Executive Summit?

A powerful event that brings together your peers and Chairs from across the region for a day of learning, inspiration and connection. It’s a day designed to put you on the fast track to more effective leadership, increased performance and better results.

You can count on:

You’ll come away with keen insights, broadened perspectives, practical tips to implement immediately, and mind racing possibilities.

Program Economist, ITR Economics

Navigating the crest: Acute insights for improved decision-making

Make the right decisions, at the right time.

Using rate-of-change calculations, find out how to identify where you are in your business cycle, and which key leading indicators should guide your business strategy. Leave with:

  • Clear, practical, actionable advice based on the current economic environment.
  • Understanding of the impact of government policy on the economy.
  • Inflation and interest rate expectations.

Scott Mautz

Founder, Profound Performance

The leadership secret of today’s high-performing organizations

Perks, promotions and pay. These aren’t what motivates today’s workforce (increasingly influenced by Millennials/Gen Z). On the contrary, it’s meaning that motivates employees, and does so on a sustaining basis. Research shows, meaning-rich organizations get results like no other. This presentation from Scott Mautz will explore “The Markers of Meaning,” specific conditions you can foster to create meaning in and at work to feed learning and personal growth, inspire self-esteem, grant autonomy, and craft an environment of authenticity. Leave with practical tools you can put in practice immediately.
