THIS YEAR’S WORKSHOPS

Whether your company is first, second or even sixth generation today, you want it to survive and thrive for many more generations.  Learn concrete steps to take to insure your business not only survives but thrives into the future.

Higher profits are almost always in direct proportion to higher performance!  Smart leaders are very deliberate about being people centric.  We’ll show you how the financial impacts of putting people first and how to literally create and reinforce your desired culture.  Diligence to culture can and will boost your bottom line.

Ever have someone you wanted to show the door?  Could they be your next high performer?  Learn from Jim who was tasked with doing just this and conquered at his former position.  You’ll never look at a misfit the same again.

Family businesses have amazing leaders who care about people deeply.  Sometimes that care gets in the way of accountability and getting results.  With that compassion can be false hopes for improved performance in employees who never will improve.  Learn how to know when “enough is enough” so you can boost the rest of your team.

Let’s face it, business can have rough patches.  What do you do when you hit a hard spot?  Do you retreat?  Do you attack?  Maybe do both?  😊  They say when the going gets tough, the tough get going but not until they learn how to deal with their own reactions.  In this session you’ll learn foolproof methods to keep your cool and make wise decisions no matter what is happening.

One of the common complaints of family businesses is communications that get off the track.  Too many people are notified.  Or, the ones that needed communication were left out.  Or a bunch were notified and everybody jumped in to solve wasting payroll time.  In this session learn how to make your internal communication even better no matter how good it is now.

With inflation, interest rates, prices and supplies all taking a roller coaster ride lately, keeping your cash balance adequate and borrowings in check can feel daunting.  Our founder and cash flow expert Betsi Bixby will share decades developed best practices for keeping both sound during even the most turbulent times.

“This event is a[n] industry “major” – one event that I go out of my way to attend every year. From the speakers to the other attendees to the round table discussions, I return home with concrete action items that have helped me drive Offen’s culture and bottom line. CEOX was my first exposure to many of the ideas and tools Offen has used to grow our business more than 10x to over a billion gallons.”
