The inaugural PMI CEO Thinking Forum is scheduled for June 22 & 23, 2020, in Washington, D.C., co-located with the PMI Washington DC Legislative Forum and Fly-In on June 23 and 24. Designed with the specific challenges facing the plumbing manufacturing industry in mind, the forum will be an interactive seminar exploring leadership philosophy, vision and imagination.
Participants will engage in open roundtable discussions with fellow CEOs to explore strategies that will keep their companies and the plumbing manufacturing industry on a continual path to success. The forum is open to CEOs and other c-suite executives.
The seminar will be led by Ed Ruggero, a leadership expert who has assisted clients including the FBI, CIA, New York City Police Department, Forbes, SAS Institute and CitiFinancial. He will lead a workshop that draws lessons from the Battle of Gettysburg, where field commanders made life-or-death decisions amid murky, ill-defined conditions, incomplete information, and high pressure. The workshop also will explore how to:
- Influence culture to attract and retain top talent
- Communicate intent to reduce the possibility of misinterpretation
- Empower teams
- Support innovation and creativity
- Develop strong leaders for the future
Emphasizing timeless leadership lessons, the forum will provide new insights about how to lead a productive, innovative and empowered workforce. The experience will challenge executives to consider how they function as leaders and give each of them the opportunity to write a personal leadership philosophy that will help set expectations for their teams.
