The Canyons:
"Exploring the Gaps Between Leaders, Managers & Doers"


Bennett Phillips
Performance Development Expert
Competency: Leadership

Objective: Gaining Engagement Across Organizational Levels

Last year, Bennett Philips spoke to the chapter on the Symphony Performance Management model. That meeting was so well received that we’ve invited him back. This month, Bennett will lead a discussion on how to create engagement by bridging the canyons between senior leaders, managers, and “doers” (employees).

The key to The Canyon’s success is that it ensures every single person in the business is represented within it, conveying to people at all levels that we know what it’s like to be them – validating their feelings and frustrations, and leading to the highest levels of engagement and effectiveness.

Key Topics & Take-aways

  • Learn about common causes of disengagement in the workplace and how to avoid them
  • Tactics for overcoming poor communication between senior leadership, management, and the front line
  • Explore how visual metaphors provide a great setting for productive conversation and peer learning

Several Mt. Diablo Members Now FIREWALKERS

Our May 20th chapter meeting "Using Peak Performance to Have a Breakthrough Career Year" inspired several members to attend the
Tony Robbins "Unleash the Power Within" weekend event on
June 26-29. They report that it was unbelievably impactful. They
learned how to control their state
and then demonstrated that control
by walking across a bed of hot coals without suffering any burns
whatsoever. It was a living, experiential metaphor for how much more
we are capable of achieving in our lives and careers,
and a weekend
with the power to change everything!
