| By Brandon Schenk
APPLY TODAY! NGLCC has released its application for the 2nd annual LGBTBE Strategic Growth & Development Institute: Predictable Success scheduled to begin Wednesday, November 19, 2014. As an advocacy organization, NGLCC is committed to delivering high quality educational programming to our constituents. Building off the success of the spring institute, LGBTBEs will have the opportunity to propel their businesses forward with Les McKeown, business guru and best selling author of Predictable Success. This will be McKeown’s second engagement with NGLCC after his highly rated and impactful opening session keynote at the NGLCC national conference last year in Dallas, TX. During the Institute, selected participants will challenge themselves to
- Identify exactly where their organization is on the Predictable Success lifecycle
- Learn what structures, processes and people are needed to achieve their organization’s goals
- Discover a model and vocabulary for effective, team-based decision making
- Know how their leadership style can contribute to their organization’s success
- Be clear on their role in bringing their organization to or keeping it in Predictable Success
The NGLCC Supplier Innovation Center will host the institute in its unique classroom space designed to engage learners. As an intersection of a business development, continuing education, and professional growth, the Supplier Innovation Center connects the dots and celebrates the growth potential of high-achieving LGBT-owned businesses.
The institute will allow participants to experience real-time business development exercises, and offer guidance on principles for best practices. In addition to participants receiving training with individual consultants; participants will also leave the institute confident in their skills and their goal to propel the future of their businesses.
NGLCC will continue to partner with organizations that produce powerful, impactful, and immersive learning experiences for our certified LGBTBEs and local affiliate chamber members. As the landscape of business diversity and inclusion continues to change, our goal is to work collaboratively for increased LGBT economic power.
