From Vision to Victory: A “Make or Break” Guide to Effective Execution

Friday, November 17, 2023 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. PST

From Vision to Victory: A “Make or Break” Guide to Effective Execution

The best leaders have both a clear vision and an eye for the operating detail that will “Make or Break” that vision. 

Lack of vision will result in a business that spins its wheels. And yet even the best vision will go nowhere in the face of poor execution. The big struggle for most leaders is how to do both. 

How do you actively lead your organization to ensure superb execution of your vision without being consumed by the details and the urgent “alligators” you face daily?

During this CEO Climb Event, Dan delivers amazing value with street-proven tools gained from running highly successful companies, large and small for many years. At this event, you will learn to describe your organization’s future in a way that is clear and compelling to all. 

You will identify what matters most to achieving your vision – your “Make or Break”. 

You will learn how to change your company’s perspective to be truly forward-facing. 

And you will learn how to be in the middle of it all – actively linking together people, strategy, and operating detail – doing the real job of effective leaders. 

Dan’s whole approach is designed to create alignment in organizations and to bring fresh thinking to your leadership.


What will you learn from this CEO Climb Event?  

This event presents a highly effective and easy-to-implement process for keeping your organization’s performance on track to your vision. The event is hands-on to create a valuable learning experience so everyone leaves ready-to-implement.
