Busy is the new normal.

Every day now our lives are filled with endless meetings, e-mails and paperwork.

Countless interruptions are common.

Technical and adaptive problems abound.

In the midst, we hope to find a spare minute to be proactive and strategic.

Instead, we are overwhelmed by multiple tsunamis of change.

Occasionally we even get to experience one to three troughs of chaos happening at the same time.

Exhausted, we hope for a better future but rarely have the time or space to think about it.

If this is the normal rhythm of your day, then the Spring 2012 From Vision to Action Executive Roundtable at the Courtyard in West Des Moines, Iowa is the perfect place for you. Here you will find a highly committed group of executives who come to learn, network and explore better questions, new ideas and unique perspectives at a deeper and more holistic level. With uninterrupted time and space, they have found this event to be valuable, yielding new insights to their current and emerging challenges.

Here is the agenda for your review:

When our lives are driven by tasks, meetings and more to do than can ever get done, we are in danger of loosing ourself and the focus on what is most important in our lives and our work. Break the cycle this spring and create an opportunity for learning, reflection and networking.

There is still time to sign-up for the Spring 2012 From Vision to Action Executive Roundtable. I know you will find it helpful in the short and long term growth of yourself as a leader and for your organization.

If you are interested, please contact me today about whether or not you can come. I look forward to your participation.
