The National Leadership Conference was held recently in Dallas, Texas, and a contingent of leaders from FiveStar Direct was thrilled to attend. Industry conferences bring together some of the brightest minds and most influential business leaders, and this event was no exception. The FiveStar Direct team had the opportunity to network with top performers from across the country and gain insight into what makes the most successful marketing leaders so good at what they do. The team returned to work refreshed and motivated to do develop even more innovative and effective campaigns for their clients.
While many topics are covered at a gathering like the National Leadership Conference, one that really stuck with the FiveStar Direct team was the discussion on business expansion. As the firm’s director of operations stated, “Our business has been doing really well and we want to be prepared for the expansion we see in our future.”
The conference also featured a presentation on the importance of being open to change. FiveStar Direct is committed to staying ahead of its competition, so maintaining flexibility and being willing to make changes are important concepts for the company. These are principles the firm already practices regularly.
One presentation during the conference made an especially strong impression on the FiveStar Direct team by using an effective analogy. As the firm’s director of operations explained, “A V12 engine is made up of so many small pieces that make it such a strong, powerful engine and a dream engine for any car lover. However, if one of those small pieces breaks, the whole engine is shot and the car will not operate. The same goes for building a strong business. If one member of a team is struggling, it can affect the entire company’s performance.”
FiveStar Direct Uses Travel as Bonding Experience
As FiveStar Direct’s director of operations commented, “It’s a fantastic team bonding experience. The traveling and the networking really bring us closer together and stronger as a group.” The team returned to work with a revitalized commitment to excellence and a dedication to reaching lofty new goals.
The group of executives also visited a high-performing office as part of the trip. They were able to observe how business is done in a different city and state. The FiveStar Direct team benefitted immensely from this experience, learning about the corporate culture and daily activities of a true leader in the industry. The lessons taken from the visit will be implemented at the home office and help the firm grow and expand.
