Keynote Speech: Infinite Possibilities

Posted by NMA on Sep 7, 2016 9:30:50 AM

Steve Murphy will be presenting the keynote speech at The Housing Conference

Stephen D. Murphy, a senior consulting partner for The Ken Blanchard Companies, has a very entertaining, motivating, dynamic, and eye-opening facilitation style. He creates enthusiasm among his clients during the workshops, empowering them to turn conceptual information into methods they can use back at their job. As a result, people leave with a positive and memorable learning experience, work more effectively, increase their productivity, and achieve greater success.

Keynote Speech: Infinite Possibilities
Presenter, Steve Murphy

Infinite possibilities! That’s the mindset that can drive innovation, develop creativity, and produce amazing results. How do we maintain that mindset when surrounded by a tsunami of change and uncertainty? How do we continue to be passionate and mission-driven when faced with obstacles, both real and imagined? Steve Murphy, a senior consulting partner with The Ken Blanchard Companies, will fire up the “Change” grill and cook up some ideas to help you:

  • Stay focused, positive, AND proactive during these uncertain times.
  • Incorporate a more “change-adaptive” mindset.
  • Unclutter your thinking to consider new ideas and solutions.
  • Realistically manage your day-to-day activities in the face of the unknown.

The Housing Conference, presented by NMA and HAI Group, will spotlight three tracks: an executive track, a regulatory track, and a best practices track. Go here to view a list of the session descriptions that have been published so far.
