Discover your Hidden Advantage – Process Innovation

In today’s fast-paced global economy, outperforming your competition is harder than ever. It seems everyone is trying to build a better mousetrap. A stronger widget. A smaller product. Or, they’re hyping their service’s benefits, its price, its guarantees. Everywhere you turn, there appear to be challenges beyond your control. Tough economy. Weak demand. Price pressures.  What if you had a competitive edge that could change everything? Imagine a hidden advantage that doubles your productivity, triples your capacity, and changes the way you do business.

Let Phil show you that your business sits on a goldmine—a hidden wealth of treasure—if only you knew where to look and what to do about it. He’ll introduce you to a whole new way of thinking and a whole new level of business performance.

Keynote Highlights:
Discover how your hidden competitive advantage…

  • is not about products and services
  • increases your workflow, productivity, and capacity
  • reduces your cost and accelerates your cash flow
  • improves your safety and quality
  • engages and motivates your employees
  • grows your business using untapped capacity


Don Schmincke

High Altitude Leadership™ What Science and Death-Zones Teach Us About Success

Profitability and market penetration improve with strategic advantage, superior management teams, and high-performance cultures. But lack of alignment, speed, and accountability frustrate many executives in achieving these results. Best-selling author Don Schmincke’s uniquely refreshing perspective addresses this dilemma using scientific, yet provocative, alternatives to modern leadership hype. The secrets unconcealed with anthropology, evolutionary genetics, and death-zone altitudes will shock you. Based on his books, "The Code of the Executive" and “High Altitude Leadership”, Don irreverently and humorously dispels “program-of-the-month” theories and replaces them with revolutionary, controversial insights: 

  • why leadership programs fail to develop great leadership.
  • the hidden threat to profits and why it’s avoided by mainstream experts.
  • the seduction that causes strategies to fail and what to do about it.
  • why followers don’t follow leaders – and what they’re really following.
  • why change programs fall short and the genetic solution for performance.

Audiences walk away with novel and energizing leadership approaches to execute strategy, improve the bottom-line, and have more fun.  

To attend the Executive Leadership Track of RG Connect 2013, register for the RG Connect 2013 as normal.  All tracks and sessions are open to all attendees.
