Business

Execution

Summit

March 10-12, 2019

Expand your mind. Build relationships.
Grow your business.

 

Why Attend?

Despite an abundance of ideas and great intentions, business owners and thought-leaders agree, the biggest challenge for organizations today is a lack of disciplined execution.  Most organizations have established their goals, budgets, and plans but unless the leaders of an organization can align their entire organization to execute them, the desired results will seldom be achieved.

The Business Execution Summit 2019 brings together business owners, leaders, and senior executives to share and learn best-practices in the area of business execution. It is a community of ambitious, open-minded leaders who all have one thing in common; a desire to build a great company.

Expand Your Mind

The pursuit of excellence requires growth and change.  BEx features world class thought leaders who will push even the most savvy of leaders to test their limits and challenge assumptions.  What emerging trends, research, concepts and ideas are successful companies around the world leveraging that you need to know?

Build Relationships

How valuable is it to share ideas and challenges with a group of business leaders you respect and admire?  There is a synergistic magic in belonging to a community like this.  BEx is filled with growth minded, humble, ambitious business leaders who are in pursuit of building world class organizations.    If that description sounds like you, that makes you an ideal BEx attendee.

Grow Your Business

At its core, BEx was created for one purpose, and one purpose alone; TO NUDGE YOU CLOSER TO TRANSFORMING YOUR BUSINESS.  Committing to actions, expanding your thinking, developing new relationships and deepening your resolve to fearlessly pursue the type of business you've always imagined are, at its core, what we want you to leave BEx having accomplished.

People get excited, are inspired, and they come up with new ideas that can disrupt their own business or grow their business or create a new product line that they don’t have. Our team is going to go back and it’s going to be an exponential impact on the rest of our organization, because they took two days to just challenge themselves and learn.
— Chris Labossiere, CEO & Founder, Yardstick Software, BEx 2018 Attendee
It’s exceptional. It’s exceptional for a lot of reasons. Because this is our community and this is where our businesses takes place. In our community. In our backyard. And I come back because of the quality of what’s here.
— Alina Martin, Managing Director, Danatec Educational Services, BEx 2018 Attendee
I’ve been to a Results event before when it was smaller and more intimate. What I found really interesting is that Results community feel has really transcended the size. I still have tons of really intimate conversations so I can leapfrog across my industry, potentially with ideas I pulled from completely different points of views.
— Angela Armstrong, Founder & President, Prime Capital Group, BEx 2018 Attendee

Alison Fragale - Negotiation: The Swiss Army Knife of Relationship Management

Negotiation – the process through which two or more people “give and take” in a relationship – is an unavoidable part of organizational life, and thus an essential part of a leader’s toolkit. Negotiations occur when responsibilities are assigned, people are managed, or deals are struck. Yet, individuals often fail to recognize that most, if not all, of their day-to-day interactions are negotiations, subject to the same principles and strategies that are used to write a contract or buy a car. As a result, turf wars, silo mentalities, and us vs. them conflicts are commonplace, and these interpersonal struggles are one reason that individuals disengage from their work. Strong negotiators build strong relationships, and strong relationships create winning cultures. Alison discusses the science of what the best (and worst) negotiators do, and how leaders can help their teams solve everyday challenges, both big and small, through negotiation.

10:00 AM - 10:20 AM | Coffee Break

10:20 AM -12:00 PM | Keynote Presentation

The rate of change in the business world is faster than ever before. It used to be large companies that dominated the small. Now it’s the fast disrupting the slow.

Entire industries are being disrupted by new entrants: Skype now facilitates more international long distance calls than all the major telcos of the world combined! Uber is worth more than all the taxi cab companies in North America added together (but it doesn’t own a single car)!

Dozens of exponentially improving technologies are compounding each other. Technologies such as computer power (Moore’s Law); mobile smartphones; wireless bandwidth (5G); artificial intelligence (AI); cloud storage and cloud computing; Big Data Analytics, blockchain and crypto currency to mention a few.

While exponentially improving technologies are at the heart of this disruption, it is ultimately new ways of working – fully engaging people – and agility in exploring new business models that are equally critical.

This dynamic, interactive, thought-provoking session will cause you to have profound insights about your business, strategy, business model. It will provide practical, proven strategies, tips and techniques for ensuring that your organization thrives in the future!

Results Canada - Building an Accountability Culture

Mastering personal workflow is a foundational skill set for all employees, but particularly leaders if they are to achieve a culture of accountability. In this seminar, we will consider: the fundamental workflow of management and delegation as essential management skills; the reality of our work environment and how without the right tools and processes we are destined for failure; and best practices for managing inputs, priorities, and communications to create a culture of accountability. By applying these approaches, you will be able to keep promises, execute on the highest priorities, and achieve greater balance with less stress. Where a culture of accountability exists, great things happen:

  • People are more responsible for their own work and they feel accountable to their teammates for results.

  • Poor performers feel pressure to improve not just from their supervisor, but from their peers.

  • Potential problems are quickly identified by critiquing one another's ideas and approaches.

  • Respect among team members is enhanced because everyone is held to the same standard of performance.

  • Excessive bureaucracy around performance management is avoided.

  • Individuals and teams feel energized and mobilized to deliver outstanding results.

    Building on the work of Pat Lencioni and John Spence, this 90-minute seminar will provide insight, tips and process for building and maintaining a culture of accountability in your organization.

  • Original Joe’s - The Original Joe's Story: Transforming Culture Through A Compelling Purpose

    Imagine your company if ALL your employees behaved as owners.

    Inspiring your people to behave like this is the goal of most business leaders. But, for those who have tried, it is much easier said than done.

    An integral component of this journey is giving your people a compelling reason to behave differently. It begins with the "why" or the purpose that fuels sustaining, intrinsic motivation in people.

    Original Joe's is a homegrown, Alberta example of a company who has achieved this.

    Join us for this exclusive Results Executive Forum where the Original Joe's leadership team will take you on their journey of how they completely changed their culture by creating a vibrant and compelling vision that has laid the foundation for massive transformations in their business.

    The discussion will weave in stories about how their Heart Cart initiative was born and the conditions that made possible fantastic decision making and ownership mentality by all employees.

    Alison Fragale - The Psychology of Power

    Gather around the water cooler, and everyone has a Bosszilla story to share. Although we may chalk up our managerial misfortune to our leader’s poor disposition or training, and vow that we would never submit others to the same mistreatment, evidence from psychology suggests that this is hubris. The experience of being “in charge” actually changes how individuals think, feel, and act, often for the worse. Alison explains how power affects all of us, and provides tips for how leaders can lead better than they were once led, as well as how organizations can create cultures that banish bad leadership and foster engagement.

    Rise & Shine Yoga

    We know how easy it can be to slip into autopilot when attending a conference - hustling in and out of sessions, responding to emails, tweets and phone calls, maximizing every moment with your colleagues. In the mix of all this multitasking, we may find ourselves in a mental and physical overload. This session will offer you the opportunity to clear, reboot, and reconnect your mind state of being actively aware in each moment in order for you to make the most of your conference experience.

    Please note: This session is optional and seating is limited. Availability is based on first-come, first-serve basis. Limited yoga mats are available.

    Dr. Karen MacNeill - The High Performance Leader

    Increasing complexity, rate of change, and shifting expectations in the workplace are placing more demands on leaders than ever before. Leaders of today are in a race against the clock to innovate faster than their competitors… innovate or die as the adage goes. However, the Olympic-like mentality of “Faster, Higher, Stronger” can have negative impacts on a leader’s health, well-being and ability to consistently execute. To help mitigate health risks, leaders need to arm themselves with the tools that ensure their corporate journey sees them burning bright versus burning out.

    In this engaging and interactive presentation, Dr. MacNeill will discuss high-performance principles, mental fitness competencies and recovery strategies required to reach high levels of personal and performance excellence. A highly recognized performance psychologist who has worked with Canadian Olympic athletes for the last 5 Winter Games, Karen will provide you with new insights and tools to enhance your ability to operate as a High Performance Leader.

    Jim Harris - Thriving In the Future: How To Build A Fast, Nimble Organization

    Okay. We know that disruption is going to threaten almost every industry – the only questions is when it will occur?

    Given that, how can we do to future proof our businesses? How can we create nimble organizations? How can we fully engage employees? How can we create raving fans out of our customers? How can we raise revenue, mitigate risk and increase profitability all while increasing both customer and employee satisfaction?

    While technology is in many cases what is enabling companies and entire industries to be disrupted in head spinning speed, ultimately it is people, systems and structures and business models that unleash the greatest value for customers and shareholders.

    Rosabeth Moss Kanter, the former editor of the Harvard Business Review said that to be successful organizations would have to focus on the 4 Fs: they have to be fast, focused, flexible and friendly.

    This fun, provocative, engaging and interactive session will explore how you can engage employees, suppliers and even competitors to not only remain relevant but thrive in the future.
