    Please join me and other ATD members at this informative luncheon!

    Join Rochester Rotary on April 11th at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center as we invite Stephen M. R. Covey to speak on his newest and most transformative book yet, Trust & Inspire. Hear Stephen’s compelling argument that even though our world has changed drastically, our leadership style has not. Most organizations, teams, schools, and families today still operate from a model of “Command & Control,” focusing on hierarchies and compliance from people. But because of the changing nature of the world, the workforce, the work itself, and the choices we have for where and how to work and live, these old rules of leadership no longer apply. People don’t want to be managed; they want to be led, and Stephen will introduce us to the 3 Stewardships of a Trust & Inspire Leader.
