BCE 2010 Top Takeaways - Day 4

The final day of the Building Champions Experience was all about Priority Management, Reflection, and Accountability. The room had many emotions flowing through it when I arrived. People were excited for another great session, sad to be leaving friends, but also happy to be headed home to loved ones and routine. We had spent the better part of the past three days focused on identifying our personal priorities (Life Plan) and our business priorities (Vision Plan). It was time to focus on how to manage all of these priorities with everything else going on around us. Here are my takeaways from the final day of the Building Champions Experience 2010.
