Seminar offers ‘Pathway to Profit' at Las Vegas Market
January 16, 2014-- Furniture Today,
HIGH POINT — Caroline Hipple, industry strategist, author and chief energy officer of HB2 Resources, will explore "A Pathway to Profit," a new business book, during an educational event at the Las Vegas Market.
The event, sponsored by WithIt and International Market Centers, will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 26, in World Market Center C-174.
Hipple and her co-authors, longtime business partners Dixon Bartlett, Anita Pugh and Chris Matthies, will share their formula for personal and organizational success, designed to help individuals and organizations navigate difficult times.
"‘A Pathway to Profit' is more than a management book," Hipple said. "It's a primer giving a behind-the-scenes picture of developing a culture linking people and profit. The Pathway describes a recommended architecture on which to build an organization's culture and presents a plan for developing leaders to ensure associate participation and achieving results."
The authors say the book describes the culture of caring, which connects developing and empowering people to creating profits.
"This is the stuff that really moves the meter," Hipple said. "When you think about it, this is one of the last frontiers for gaining a competitive edge. Price is no longer a competitive edge, nor is great style, because so many people can do it. It's the people, the team and the feeling of inclusiveness and empowerment - the gray areas - that attract better and better people, and therein lies the opportunity to gain competitive edge."
There is no charge to attend the seminar, but seating is limited and the sponsors encourage reservations. To register, visit http://www.withit.org/EventInformation.aspx?event_id=315.
