Harkey focuses on the culture of high-performance communities

BE THE CHANGE – THE VOICE – A LEADER: How do you intensify community growth? The answer is collaborative leadership; but who is a leader? It’s more people than you think! Don Harkey, CEO of People Centric Consulting Group will discuss how the connection between leadership and collaboration directly applies to a community’ success. Participants will discover what we can do to own our story. No one single organization or person can be the voice alone.

Collaboration is a deeply human activity that can either hinder or nurture a community. To truly be collaborative, activities and initiatives need to be deliberately focused on working toward shared goals; otherwise, we are cooperating, not collaborating.

Harkey spent 10 years working for Fortune 500 Companies where he developed skills helping people improve processes. He left the corporate world in 2005 to become a speaker to thousands of people at national conferences and as a consultant working with organizations to implement tactical processes that create high-performance cultures.
