Performex® celebrates 35 Years of the “Summit Excellence Program” at September 2014 workshop
Leadership Development Firm Celebrates 35 Year Anniversary of Core Leadership Program
The Summit Excellence Program is the core leadership development program for the company. It is an intensive 12-month program that begins with a 3-day immersion workshop that incorporates 360° feedback, a personality assessment, instruction on key leadership skills, coaching exercises and simulations. Each participant emerges from the workshop with at least 2 focused development areas on which to focus for the next year with a Performex® executive coach. A second mid-term workshop offers additional assessments and content. The program concludes with a final 360° feedback assessment to measure the progress made by the participant and coach.
John Bruce, COO of Performex, LLC shared, “In 1979, Doug Fletcher, Ralph Bettman, and Mac Barnum conducted the initial PEP (Performance Excellence Program) that would become today’s Summit program. Soon afterwards, Doug Fletcher became the principle of Performex® and successfully built and guided the company for the next 30 years. He remains a dear friend of the company.” John continued, “While the program has changed over the years with technology, etc., we have stayed true to its basic concepts and core values. We are committed to helping technical specialists and other professionals from legal, financial, engineering, HR, IT and sales backgrounds successfully lead and develop teams. When we purchased the company from Doug in 2011, he stressed two things: ‘People from technical and professional backgrounds are delightful to work with because they are bright and eager to learn. In addition, there is a real need - these individuals often need help shifting from doing the work themselves to communicating, delegating, developing teams and leading others.’ We’ve continued that philosophy – it’s where we excel and what we are known for!”
The Summit Excellence Program is being held at Webster University in Irvine, CA on September 23-25. Limited spots are available and information is available at http://www.performex.com/
