Resources: Tools and Products That Help Me Be a Better Leader: CEO Space


Let’s Chat About Leadership…

This blog series appears on Tuesdays, and focuses on resources that I use as I pace my ability to continually strive for my greatest effectiveness. Leaders get things done. In order to accomplish this objective, it’s important to have the necessary skills and systems in place. I have tried many things over many years and have settled on what’s simple, reliable, and consistent.

Each resource will appear under one or more of my four leadership principles:
  1. Foundations: Clarity of purpose and outcomes, and equipping oneself for excellence;
  2. Relationships: Building and maintaining healthy and effective relationships;
  3. Systems: Tools and processes for leading and empowering transformation; and
  4. Balance: Managing multiple priorities and managing self.

Each resource I blog about is one I have tested and used personally. I do not make money on these referrals unless specifically stated in the post.

Today’s resource:

CEO Space

CEO Space International

Over the past eight years I have been on a transformational journey of repositioning, refining, and growth in my business, my skills, and my brand. I discovered CEO Space in 2005 and thought it was a fluke. After thinking about it for the year, I finally met the founder, Berny Dohrmann. I was impressed with his insights into my business model and encouraged by his vision for upgrading my work. I registered and attended my first event in December 2006.

By May of 2007, I was invited to become an instructor and the momentum of my journey increased. Since I had spent 40 years as musical conductor facing the orchestra and chorus with my back to the audience, I had to learn a new skill – presenting to the audience. This organization has given me a platform to share my knowledge, to build my skills, and to increase my network. I have learned and employed the power of cooperative capitalism with my work and been encouraged by clients to learn and utilize the paradigm shift as well.

This is a resource that has allowed me to up my game and to influence others to join the worldwide movement.

It’s not an ordinary networking event. It’s not only an educational event. It’s the synergy of like-minded leaders bringing energy to each other. It’s a place of almost limitless resources of contacts and support.

On March 22, 2015, I will begin participating in my 45th CEO Space event in a row. I attend and teach and coach because I grow personally and I improve my business each time.

The top-level leaders and experts I work with are people I have met at this highly effective business growth conference. Many of them have become my dearest friends and colleagues.
