How you compensate people is one of the most important strategic decisions directors and company leaders will make - but few “get it right and out of sight.”  Nail it and you can add tens of percentage points to the bottom line while driving up the energy in the organization.  Make the wrong call (or piecemeal the decision together), and the results will create needless drama throughout the organization.

This topic is so important that we’re following up the October 7th national webinar that was sponsored by Pearl Meyer on executive pay with a very special program by Verne Harnish, the founder of Entrepreneurs’ Organization and Scaling Up, as well as the author of multiple #1 best sellers on Amazon.

During Verne’s presentation, we’ll learn:

  1. The #1 mistake business leaders make in setting up their compensation plans
  2. The psychological aspects of compensation underpinning successful plans
  3. How individual bonuses can backfire
  4. The power of gamifying gains to drive up energy and engagement
  5. Whether you want to be king/queen or rich

Verne will also provide us with along plenty of examples from leading small, medium, and large firms across various industries.

This is a unique opportunity to learn from and interact with Verne Harnish.

Thank you to our National and Gold Chapter Sponsors!
