Execution: Transform Your Organization into a Goal-Smashing Machine

Wednesday, September 12, 11:30 – 1:00 PM

DoubleTree By Hilton & West Fargo Conference Center, 1825 East Beaton Dr, West Fargo

Is your organization achieving its most important goals? Nearly four out of five strategic implementations fail. It’s not the fault of the strategies themselves. It is that they do not get executed by the people within the organization.

The people on your team aren’t lazy or incompetent: they’re busy. In fact, they are so busy with the urgency of the day-to-day, that they struggle to find the time to execute on your organization’s most important goals. In this session, we will discuss proven execution principles that will help you transform your organization into a goal-crushing machine.

Stress Management: Sleep, Eat, Move, Repeat

Wednesday, October 10, 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM

Courtyard by Marriott, Moorhead

We all have stress from many sources. The physical stress of work or exercise. The emotional stress of an ever-growing demand on your time form both your work and family. The chemical stress on our body from an environment that is becoming more polluted and eating habits that we know could use some work. There seem to be thousands of fix-alls and snake oils being sold to make our lives better, but what if we already had access to what we need to increase our body’s ability to handle stress when needed and decrease the harmful side effects stress puts on us? We do. At this session, you’ll learn a step-by-step approach to managing life’s biggest stressors and take back control of your well-being.

Dr. Chris Dockter will share how to maximize your body’s ability to handle the three foundational pillars to stress: sleep, eating and movement. If you’re a busy adult and want to maximize your ability to handle the curve balls life throws your way and be the best version of yourself, make sure to join us for this training.

Cracker Barrel

Thursday, October 18,  3:30 – 5:00 PM

Hjemkomst Center Auditorium, 202 First Avenue North, Moorhead
This event is free, but registration is required.

Cracker Barrel
A “cracker-barrel” is a traditional expression used to describe a habitual discussion
among a common group or community.

“The Chamber’s Cracker Barrel initiates or inspires routine conversations between our policymakers and business leaders. We’ve designed the event to provide you an opportunity to meet candidates and share the issues you are most interested in. The format is informal, unintimidating and fast-paced. The engaging format allows connections to be made without note cards or scripts so the relationship will last after the election occurs.”
