8:30 - 10:00 a.m. The Power of Generosity – Brian Black - The Keys
We will explore the many dimensions of generosity – expanding our understanding of how generosity is both expressed and experienced in our own lives, in our family and in the organizations that we own and/or lead. We will consider some foundational ways, some creative ways and even some “crazy” ways that these dimensions of generosity can be woven into our individual lives and into the culture of our family – to create a generational legacy of generosity that lives on well beyond us. Using our expanded understanding of generosity – participants will be provided with a framework to establish their individualized desired “next steps” in their journey of personal and family generosity.

We will explore the many ways to develop and grow a culture of generosity in our organizations that impacts our employees and their families, our customers, vendors and the community – and all while strengthening the “bottom line.” We will self-evaluate the culture of our organizations and consider both foundational and creative practices to both establish and to grow a leadership culture of generosity that can be replicated into our teams at all levels of the organization and into the individual lives of our employees. Participants will develop an individualized framework for advancing a culture of generosity in their organizations and will be provided with opportunity for a post-conference one on one follow-up with the facilitator to assist in further refining their personal, family and organizational frameworks.
