Conference Kick Off with Jan Spence

It’s Game Time!  Leadership Lessons from a Pro Female Football Player

Words have profound power; they can lift someone up or tear someone down. Jan Spence shares how pursuing her life-long dream of playing professional football led to the unexpected opportunity to affect change through encouraging words and simple actions. Applying her  “Cheer Leadership™” approach in the workplace builds stronger connections, increases employee engagement and loyalty, and fosters collaboration and innovation. These invaluable lessons transform employee and customer relations and create more synergy among leadership and the people they manage.

CONFERENCE KICKOFF INCLUDES THE AAMD HALL OF FAME INDUCTION CEREMONY FOR LORI SNIDER AND CARRIE GILLIS
