Sunday Keynote - The Intention Imperative

Mark Sanborn
Mark Sanborn
President, Sanborn & Associates, Inc.

Nobody ever got to the top of Mount Everest accidentally. Summiting the highest peak in the world takes clarity and intention AND so does leading successfully.

Intentional Leadership = clarity (knowing clearly where you want to go) + intentionality (taking consistent action to get there). Clarity without consistent action is daydreaming. Consistent action without clarity is wasted time and effort.

Just as the tools of successful mountaineering have changed and improved over time, so have the requirements of intentional leadership. Based on 33 years of working with organizations globally, teaching leaders and observing powerful shifts, Mark has identified three essential areas of focus for leaders in the world:

  • Inspiration: motivation to the power of purpose
  • Culture: creating an engine that sustains vision and values while achieving desired results
  • Emotion: designing and delivering positive emotions for customers and employees

In his keynote, Mark will explain how five very different businesses use clarity of purpose and consistent action to flourish in their given fields. He will show how they have harnessed and successfully employed the three
essentials in their practices and how it is possible to improve your own business dramatically by learning from these real-world examples.

All attendees will receive a copy of Mark's book, The Intention Imperative.

Discover the Training Topics

Expand Expo puts the training and development back into conferences. Most conferences offer a handful of 60-minute breakout sessions; without sufficient time for more than just a high-level overview of the topic. Expand Expo offers 18 distinct full-day workshops on topics specifically geared towards credit union professionals. Eight workshops are offered each day. Most are offered consecutive days, allowing you the flexibility to attend the workshops most critical to your area of responsibility within the credit union.
