Schreyer to share “leadership lens” philosophy at Small Business Awards
The Chamber invites you to celebrate the successes of your peers and business partners at the 2011 Small Business Excellence Awards, to be presented at its annual luncheon on Tuesday, May 24, 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Millenium Hotel in downtown Cincinnati. The event is presented by PNC Bank and sponsored by Flynn & Company, Humana, Paycor and Business Courier.
This year’s keynote and sought-after motivational speaker, Erin Schreyer, is a certified leadership and talent management coach and the president of Sagestone Partners, an organization that provides coaching, consulting, training and motivational speaking services to help leaders become more effective to their people and their companies.
As a fully immersed small business owner herself, Schreyer knows the importance of the small business community. “Small businesses are increasingly important to the American economy. Their innovation, creativity and leadership is needed. Their size, structure and entrepreneurial spirit provide an unchallenged potential when they encourage every employee to lead from the best of who they are,” Schreyer said.
Schreyer’s keynote, entitled “Transform Your Organization: Leverage a Leadership Lens,” will explore employee engagement in the workplace, environments that empower leaders and leveraging what she calls your “leadership lens.” “Work, life and virtually every thought and decision we make are all filtered through our own ‘lens.’ Our experiences, state of mind, beliefs and values all impact this filter,” Schreyer noted.
Ultimately, Schreyer hopes her message to the small business audience on May 24 will inspire everyone, “to create a culture of leadership within organizations.”
Small businesses play a vital role in the economic well-being of the region. In fact, 85 percent of the Chamber’s members are small businesses. Each year the Chamber recognizes the innovation and accomplishments found in this critical segment of the Cincinnati USA business community. It’s a celebration of those companies that, although small, are motivated to dream big.
