Mark Your Calendar: Building a High Commitment/Performance Company Webcast
Great chief executive officers (CEOs) strive to build high commitment, high performance companies. Few companies, however, are able to do it and fewer are able to sustain. How to Build a High Commitment, High Performance Company: TruePoint Research and the GE Commercial Leasing Case, explores recent research into how great companies achieve it.
The May 23 webcast is hosted by Michael Beer, Professor Emeritus of the Harvard Business School and Chairman of TruePoint Partners, a research-based consulting firm, and Chris Richmond, Director of TruePoint Partners and the former CEO of GE Capital Commercial Leasing. The 90-minute webcast, sponsored by Harvard Business School Publishing, begins at noon, Eastern Daylight time, is by invitation, and free of charge.
The hosts will discuss the three key goals of high commitment and high performance:
- Performance alignment
- Psychological alignment
Examples of five firms that transformed into high commitment, high performance organizations will be shared, along with suggestions for applying the lessons learned to other organizations. Request an invitation from email@example.com.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
