The Lean Startup Mindset – Fail Fast to Learn Fast
In his book, The Lean Startup, Eric Ries challenges us to change our paradigm about success and failure in business. He proposes the idea of creating cost-effective experiments to help you learn what customers will actually buy, instead of investing large amounts of time and money up front in product development. This allows a business to grow successfully and nimbly without as much risk, and it has another, even more important benefit for new entrepreneurs – it greatly reduces fear of failure, and turns your new venture into a more fun, creative enterprise. In this session we’ll discuss Eric’s ideas and how we can apply them in new or established businesses to move faster and get better results.

In this session we’ll outline the five key skills that distinguish the most effective leaders from the rest.

The Introverted Leader – Creating a Communication System that Works
One of the common misconceptions in business is that in order to be a great leader you must be charismatic and extroverted. While it is true that charismatic individuals can more easily sway others to their way of thinking, studies show that introverts have several advantages when it comes to leadership: they are great listeners, they have a calm demeanor, and they tend to make well-thought out decisions. Typically, the biggest challenge introverted leaders have is managing the constant onslaught of requests for their time from people, either for meetings, to help solve problems, or just to talk. In this session we’ll talk about creating a communication system that enables you to be there for the people who need you while also giving you plenty of time and space to focus on the projects that require deep thinking.
