The Clearing Co-Founder Chris McGoff is Today’s Honoree

For the last 30 years, Chris McGoff has perfected the art of conveying complex ideas and enduring wisdom in both direct terms and in deeply engaging, actionable ways in order to assist businesses, governments, international organizations, associations, NGOs, and others in engendering new and transformative possibilities.

Through an engaging, interactive discussion, Chris shares how anyone, on any level of an organization, can be the driver of a peak performance culture. He delves into what this takes, revealing principles that any group can use to understand, shape and sustain a peak performance culture over a lifetime…and beyond.

Every leader has seen the effect of detrimental behaviors within an organization, but is often unable to effectively recognize, anticipate, and manage them. If left unaddressed, these behaviors can be the downfall of any organization—but if they are recognized and mastered, the right behaviors can become a driving force for leaders to implement strategy and turn any cultural or leadership problem into limitless possibility.
