Originally founded as the Minnesota Council for Quality, Inc. in 1987, PEN now serves all types and sizes of organizations across Minnesota and the Dakotas, helping them improve and sustain outcomes. And a big part of PEN’s contribution is providing learning opportunities with workshops, conferences, round tables and other resources.
That’s why I’m so excited about our emerging role with the Performance Excellence Network! Performance excellence has never been more important. Yet it requires alignment between an organization’s head and its heart. On April 19, at the Breakfast, we will announce the details of the relationship. As you might expect, it will involve training specifically to improve the excellence of leadership.
Good leaders invest in training and professional resource networks to help them learn and grow. And they make a mind, body and soul commitment to rewarding excellence on the path to goodness.
Please share with me: how are you learning to reward excellence?
