The Obstacle is The Way

July 20, 2022
9:00-10:30am ЕТ

Everyone knows the axiom “you’ve got to go through it to get to it,” but sometimes it’s not clear whether an obstacle is to be avoided or hurdled, or whether pushing through it the hard way might be the best, or only way. In this Roundtable, we’ll discuss approaches to navigating the business and personal challenges that stand in our way, from confronting them directly to trying to steer clear. What’s the right approach, and when, and how do you asses the kind of obstacles you face?

Present Me vs. Future Me

October 13, 2022
9:00-10:30am ЕТ

You’ve probably read about the Marshmallow Experiment and wondered how you might have performed balancing the offer of immediate gratification with the promise of a greater future reward if you could wait a little longer.

Saving, investing, and certainly growing a business requires mastery of the same mechanism – deferring immediate gratification to build and gain something more valuable in the future. In this Roundtable, we’ll discuss how we balance taking care of Present Me and Future Me, and how we can create alignment with the teams we lead around the promise of future value while balancing their nearer-term needs.
