High Performance: Preparing the Next Gen in Family Owned Business

Steve-verysmall The Family Business Center is set to host Steve Swavely, the director of leadership at Farr Associates, for conversations on using personality as a tool of leadership.

During the seminars, which will be offered in Charlotte and Winston-Salem, participants will be introduced to the Leadership Strategies Model (LSM) and the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI). Applications of these tools will help improve communication and collaboration, gain commitment versus compliance, create accountability through effective feedback, turn conflict into opportunity, manage change effectively, and manage "Gen Y."

After earning his Ph.D. in clinical neuropsychology from Georgia State University, Swavely founded and managed the Neuropsychological Assessment Laboratory in the Department of Physical Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). His professional interests focus on applying behavioral and neuropsychological technology to leadership development, executive coaching, and team development. He has worked to translate current neuroscience research into practical and applied tools for leadership training. He has over 25 years of experience in the areas of neuropsychology, assessment, business consulting, training, executive coaching, and teaching.

The Charlotte program is Tues., Sept. 21, beginning at noon with lunch for Family Business Center members, sponsors and invited guests. The next day, he will appear at Graylyn Conference Center for a program starting at 8 am. For more information, including how to reserve a space, click here.
