Gather and share with other managers

Leadership Development Roundtables offer a confidential forum of managers in non-competing businesses to regularly gather and share practical knowledge and best practices in today’s business environment. 

Groups are based on members having at least three direct reports, meeting time availability, and business fit. Leadership Development Roundtables are structured to help business managers address a variety of important issues and to offer a springboard for solutions to help improve productivity and profitability.

This group explores ideas and inspires its members with experienced techniques and strategies that can avoid costly mistakes. What issues are discussed? Topics range from common to complex. Some sessions are just within the group; others will include outside speakers.

Examples include:

  • Employee retention _ motivation, training, hiring _ firing 
  • Sales training, team building, time management 
  • Mentoring/coaching, conflict resolution 
  • Corporate guidelines, day-to-day management 
  • Communication, marketing, e-commerce 

Group guidelines

Each roundtable is required to meet monthly on a determined day and time. Roundtables are fully autonomous and develop their own objectives, priorities, agendas, meeting dates, times, and locations. Once a group is launched, administrative support from the Chamber is limited to e-mail reminders of meeting dates.

Each meeting is strictly confidential – what’s said within the group stays within the group. All members are expected to maintain complete confidentiality. 

Regular attendance, willing participation, and positive attitudes are required. Any member missing more than three meetings per year may be asked to step down from the group. Membership dues are set at $50 per member per year. Special registration fees may be charged for special programs, meetings, outings, etc. Guests or prospective members are allowed to attend by member invitation only.
