Winning Well Keynote By Leadership Speakers Karin Hurt and David Dye

Management isn’t easy. This is the main concern that award-winning authors, Karin Hurt and David Dye want to address in their keynote Winning Well. 

Managers regularly face seemingly impossible goals. The eventual fallout is stress, frustration, and disengagement from themselves and from their staff. Two-thirds of managers report being disengaged from their mission and disconnected from much their team.

Karin and David share practical leadership tools, tactics, and strategies to achieve breakthrough results that really last—keeping employees and managers energized, motivated and inspired.

Two of their most important points from Winning Well are:

  • Mind the MIT: (the Most Important Thing) that contributes to consistent, breakthrough results
  • Put People Before Projects: quickly build a more competent and confident work force ts
