Bay Area Houston organizations to host Refresh Leadership Simulcast
Nationwide educational event features Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Patrick Lencioni,
and Bertice Berry
Bay Area Houston – Express Employment Professionals of Friendswood, in partnership with the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership, Bay Area Human Resource Management Association, and the University of Houston Clear Lake, is hosting the 2012 Refresh Leadership Simulcast, a nationwide educational event featuring Pro Football Hall of Fame members Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith, leadership consultant and New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni, and sociologist and author Bertice Berry, Ph.D.
Express Employment Professionals of Friendswood has been a member of the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership since 2004.
The Refresh Leadership Simulcast will be held on Wednesday, May 16, and will be broadcast at The University of Houston Clear Lake, 2700 Bay Area Blvd., Houston, TX. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. Central time, and the simulcast begins at 8 a.m.
Business leaders, human resource professionals, local economic and chamber of commerce officials and members can register at www.refreshleadership.com/live.
The simulcast costs $15 per person to attend, with half of the proceeds going to the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.
When registering, individuals will have the opportunity to submit a question for Aikman and Smith to answer when they share leadership tips and advice learned as members of the Dallas Cowboys, one of the most prolific professional football teams in history.
Leaders can also learn from Lencioni on how to identify the natural human tendencies that plague all leadership. As identified in his first best-selling book, The Five Temptations of a CEO, Lencioni will share how these tendencies often prevent leaders from fulfilling their potential, and he’ll offer advice on how to overcome these common behavioral pitfalls.
Those attending the Refresh Leadership Simulcast will be challenged as Berry shares the importance of finding one’s purpose in life while she also helps participants identify different learning styles.
“Being a leader means more than just managing employees,” stated Mark Conrad, Bay Area Houston and Galveston County Express franchisee owner. “Even top performing employees can lose focus without the support of a great leader driving them to excel. It is crucial for leaders today to learn a leadership and communications style that works best for them and the people they manage.”
Bay Area Houston is one of nearly 200 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada that will broadcast the Refresh Leadership Simulcast.
“Express has a strong presence in Bay Area Houston and Galveston and Brazoria counties, and we have great support from the community,” said Conrad. “We are pleased to offer the Refresh Leadership Simulcast as a way to give back to the business community.”
