Picture this: a CEO ends every board meeting with the honest question, "What feedback does anyone have for me?" Every single time, she's met with silence. Can you relate?
Earlier this year, we celebrated the launch of our inaugural Small Giants Journey, a 3-year, transformative experience for leaders of values-driven organizations. Journeyers (the name we coined for Journey participants) learn alongside an intimate cohort of like-minded leaders. The program works to strengthen a leader’s practice of the six qualities of a Small Giant, institutionalizing strategies for growing their organizations with purpose, and resulting in a Small Giant designation for their company.
May 16th - 19th, 2017, more than 150 leaders took to Detroit for our annual gathering of values-driven leaders. #SGCSummit2017 immersed participants in two full days packed with interactive workshops, authentic, engaging panels, and honest storytelling from practitioners in our Long Story Short talks.
Our annual Summit is a unique, relationship-based experience, defined by a shared spirit of meaningful networking, vulnerability, and connection. A picture’s worth a thousands words - check out our photo gallery of the Summit in action, courtesy of Rooney & Company.
Can you feel it? 2017 is going to be the year of the values-driven leader. Now more than ever, business leaders are investing in the qualities that matter most when building a truly great business: purpose, leadership, culture, finances, relationships, and community. For all leaders, the new year is an opportunity to refresh your vision and renew your commitment to growing with purpose. That’s where we come in.
