Despite a strong US economy and low unemployment, the word “Recession” is coming up a lot. “Recession” (a significant decline in economic activity) is a normal, though often unpleasant, part of the business cycle. Just the mention of a recession can create uncertainty and fear in organizations. But many organizations didn’t just survive the last recession, they grew and thrived! Whether the next recession will be your 1st or your 5th, this presentation will help you and your organization THRIVE in any economic environment! Note: if your organization has managers who were NOT in management during the “Great Recession” of 2009, you may want to invite them to attend too!
Kristi knows how lucky she was to have started her career in retail -- learning from the ground up what it takes to create profitable growth. After graduating from Miami University, Kristi held sales, management and buying roles at Mercantile Stores, the May Company and ultimately, Liz Claiborne, where she was on the launch team of a new division. Kristi broadened her business knowledge with an MBA from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business but realized that the numbers side is often the easiest. In reality, it is “people” (particularly leaders) that make or break most organizations. Since then, Kristi has done what most companies struggle to do -- make the “people side” work. She has helped organizations in the retail, consumer products, construction, financial services and technology industries develop the right strategy, structure and people to drive growth and profit.
Kristi’s focus is on coaching and developing senior and “high potential” leaders to create and sustain profitable growth.
