How much time are you investing in your personal development? Things look different at the executive level. Unlike supporting roles, top level positions can offer unique challenges that may be difficult for others to understand or help resolve. You are not alone. Leading from the Top is a series of interactive workshops targeting top executives and functional leaders. These briefings focus on issues impacting leaders with accountability for enterprise performance. Join your peers in increasing your leadership performance in leading people and delivering outcomes.


Critical Thinking:

Do your executives use critical thinking skills to resolve business issues?Is your leadership team spending time on the right topics? When conflict occurs are your conversations about issues or people?


At the top of an organization the big issues are not routine. The problems are those that are novel, large and complex. The application of past experience may not work for current topics. During these times past executive experience becomes secondary to the ability to think critically. The role of critical thinking in business is to reduce individual and organization bias to make better business decisions. Participants learn the ground rules for conducting a critical discussion of business issues and managing the accompanying conflict. We will go through how executives can have these difficult conversations using a critical approach that focuses on issues without discounting individuals.


Brought to you by the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Differentiating Strategies, LLC these moderated workshops will provide participants with one to three ideas they can immediately apply to improve their executive performance.

Presented by Joe Thompson and Vicki Updike of Differentiating Strategies


Cost for this Leadership session is $30 for members or $50 for non-members.
