10:00 – 11:00 Opening General Session with Sunjay Nath Sponsored by Multivew Canada
The 10-80-10 Principle – Unlocking Dynamic Performance
The 10-80-10 Principle is a framework that allows you to increase your performance and results by focusing your energy and efforts on the highest-yielding activities. This program presented by Sunjay Nath helps individuals and teams operate at a dynamic level. Every person or group already exhibits behaviors that are Top 10 (percent) – those behaviors that lead to high performance and achievement. What people lack is the knowledge to consistently operate at that dynamic Top 10 level. The 10-80-10 Principle rewards and grows Top 10 behaviors and eliminates Bottom 10 actions. Sunjay Nath will work hands on with the audience to identify their Top and Bottom 10 and then show attendees how to A.C.T. with the 10-80-10 Principle to create greater performance levels in their lives, or within the organization. The highly sought after 10-80-10 Principle is taught around the globe to businesses and organizations through keynotes, workshops, coaching and on a consulting basis. CAE 1.0 Hour, Domain 1
