December 2013 CEO Space Business Growth Conference – What Dr. Gruder Will Do for You

Can I Help You Achieve What You Want to Accomplish at the Next CEO Space Business Growth Conference?

If you’re an entrepreneur who is birthing your business or in modest revenue, you know that your success depends on: 1) Selecting the right resources in the best sequence; 2) Creating effective agreements with them that get you the results you most need next; and 3) Bringing them into high productivity & high enjoyability collaboration with you and the rest of your team. I’m on CEO Space’s faculty to help you and your team take your next step toward becoming who your venture needs you to be for it to succeed.

If you’re the CEO of an established company that embraces Internal Corporate Responsibility, you know that an essential key to your profits and reputation is creating a purpose driven, high productivity, high enjoyability corporate culture. I’m on CEO Space’s faculty to help you discover how to become more effective at helping your company develop this kind of culture so it can fulfill its mission and maximize its profits.

If you’re an expert or professional who is making the shift into becoming an entrepreneur, you know there’s a world of difference between a professional’s marketing mindset & monetization strategies, and an entrepreneur’s. I’m an Entrepreneur Development Psychologist who is on CEO Space’s faculty to help you discover how to transform from a talented professional into a successful entrepreneur.

If you’re the Founder or Executive Director of a nonprofit or cause-based organization, you know that an essential key to your success is ensuring that your employee, volunteer and donor culture is purpose driven, high productivity and high fulfillment. I’m a Purpose Driven Culture Architect who is on CEO Space’s faculty to help you discover how to create an organizational culture that is highly attractive to donors, volunteers and/or members.

I’m Dr. David Gruder, the Business & Leader Peak Performance Psychologist who makes integrity, collaboration, social responsibility, & personal fulfillment, profitable, and I look forward to serving you in my classes, at my meal tables and in individual meetings with you…
