Gallup research shows 70% of the American workforce is disengaged. They say that mission and purpose driven organizations experience higher rates, but what can we do to make that higher? The answer lies in a highly sophisticated management technique called #MBSN or management by sticky notes. Tom Hood, CEO of the MACPA and Business Learning Institute shares the why and how of MBSN in this special session on "collaboration made easy. Particpation and collaboration leads to engagement which increases trust (7 X according to Gallup) and ultimately yields to the holy grail of engaged people who give you their discretionary effort. Tom provides exempts of how they have used this at the Maryland Association of CPAs and in their strategic planning work. They used this to design and facilitate the grassroots future forums during the CPA Horizons 2025 project.

What we believe Finding your competitive edge turning the ywheel It is hard to plan for the long term future when you dont know what is going to happen five minutes from now. Today, a competitive edge is thin and temporary; the edge quickly becomes the margin. The ability to define the edge, and the ultimate competitive advantage, is found in the smarts, heart and ingenuity of your people - that's your powerhouse. Tap that, train it, focus it and mobilize it; now you've engaged your network and inspired a sustainable shift.
