Presentations at the GAF Wealth Builder Conference of 2018
Chase Construction North West, Inc. had an excellent time at the GAF Wealth Builder Conference of 2018! We met many friends in the business and made some new ones! The entire event was enjoyable, from delicious food and fun recreation, to informative and encouraging presentations by many notable speakers. A handful of these presentations stood out to us and we walked away with a better understanding of how to move Chase Construction North West, Inc. forward.
Company Culture, Engagement, and Communication
Galen Emanuele’s speech was interactional with the audience. We entered into groups and roleplayed a variety of different scenarios. One of the activities was to write a letter with a partner, but with a catch: each person could only say one word at a time. It was a challenging task because you would try to anticipate what your partner would say. Often they would say something different than you anticipated, so you would change gears. The exercise was meant to teach us to think on our feet and react properly to whatever comes our way.
The five main takeaways from this speech are:
(1) Say yes, (2) listen and be present, (3) make others look good, (4) embrace change and failure, and (5) be positive.
Using the Law to Gain a Competitive Advantage: Trends in Property Insurance Claims and General Contractor Law
Tim Johnson gave a thorough presentation regarding important contract information for companies. He focused on wording of contracts, what to include in them, and how to make sure you’re safe in a court of law. He covered many elements of designing contracts in close detail, explaining what they are and why they’re important. We at Chase Construction North West, Inc found Johnson’s presentation insightful and thought-provoking. We came away from the presentation with very valuable information that we think would be of great benefit to investigate further.
Moving to Great
Eric Boles is a fantastic motivator. He encouraged us to find what we excel at and how to maximize our potential within that domain. Leadership is at the core of improving yourself and helping those around you. Manifesting full potential is difficult and frequently conflicts with comfort.
Boles identified four primary reasons why people might not maximize their potential:
(1) the idea that we’re okay just the way we are, (2) fear of the unknown, (3) fear of failure, and (4) fear of rejection. These are all selfish. “Moving to great” takes selflessness.
Special thanks to Jim Slauson. The event was fun, insightful, and went smoothly. Fantastic job!
