I, too, am wondering how September is arriving this week with the last quarter of the year on its heels.

I mean, whoa.

If you are among my clients, or anything like them, your pace has consistently been picking up, business is quite brisk, and your time for thinking strategically has been in short supply.

That combination isn’t great for leading into the last quarter of the year or, perhaps more significantly, preparing for how you’ll lead, grow, and position — yourself and your business — in 2023.

Below are two opportunities to get out of the daily and into your highest and best thinking for leading forward.  They’re quite different from one another.  Take a look.

The Magnificent Leadership® Executive Forum Annual Event LIVE in Raleigh on October 5+6

You will be hard-pressed to find a more open discussion about business challenges and creative solutions, a more welcoming group of peers, or a more relevant opportunity to grow and thrive as you prepare to lead in 2023.

Registration is open for the Magnificent Leadership® Executive Forum LIVE Annual Event on October 5+6 in Raleigh.

This unique leadership event brings together forward-thinking business leaders from across a broad range of industries – from banking to professional services, from specialty retail to healthcare – to gather at an inspiring, luxurious property that will take you out of the daily and into your best and highest thinking.

Not something you’re likely to find grinding away at your desk.

The event is designed to facilitate real, behind-closed-door, no-recording, business leadership conversations that are so needed today, in addition to direct interaction with outstanding guest speakers.

It is the only live, in-person event that I offer all year.

Many attendees are bringing their deputies (there is a special reduced rate for team members who attend with you).

Seating is extremely limited.

More than half are gone.

You do not need to be a member of the Executive Forum to attend.  But if you are interested in learning more about membership, you’ll find a substantial savings — and the best price of the year – only at the Annual Event on October 5+6.

Go here for registration , which includes guest speakers none other than the Chief Strategy Officer at SHRM, Nick Schacht (anyone interested in hearing about talent trends and data?) and the VP of Finance and Corporate Accounting at Chick-fil-A, Janet Bridges (anyone wondering what it takes to successfully lead through tremendous growth and uncertainty?).

And small working groups for deeper idea-exchange.

And time directly with yours truly to craft your 2023 leadership strategy.

One idea, one conversation, can change your whole year.

You can spend October 6th grinding at your desk.

Or you can spend it in Raleigh.

I hope you’ll join us.

Don’t wait.
