Join us this Blustery December BBC Friday for our annual Looking Forward, Looking Back — with special guest Alyse McConnell, BBC Founding Regular & Board Member Emeritus.
Executive Coach Alyse McConnell will walk us through celebrating what worked and gleaning the lessons from what didn’t in 2015. Considering lessons learned over the past year can help lay the foundation for the creation of a 2016 worth celebrating a year from now.
Entrepreneurial agility and creativity with corporate rigor and systems knowledge is just part of what makes Alyse a great coach and strategy consultant. Besides being a small business entrepreneur, Alyse’s broad career experience includes: Human Resources & Training Director with a leading book company in Dayton, OH; Change Management Consultant for Accenture; Global Scheduling Project Manager for Avenade Inc. Alyse is a communications graduate of Wright State University, Dayton, and a graduate of the ICF-certified Accomplishment Coaching training program.
