As we head into 2015, it’s appropriate to look back on the past year and beyond. 2014 was very successful for many and challenging for others. It’s been a year of setting records and a year of unprecedented change. For me, as I look back on the past twelve months, I think of 2014 as a year of signals. Out of the fog of day-to-day survival have arisen a series of powerful messages; clear communication that the road ahead will be full of challenges.
Cleinman Performance Network returns to the Hilton DFW Lakes Conference Center in Dallas for the first session of meetings in 2015. Some of North America’s leading optometrists and practice owners will gather Friday through Sunday, February 20-22, March 13-15, April 17-19 and May 15-17.
Dr. Andy Howard has owned and operated LaFollette Eye Clinic with his wife, Dr. Elizabeth Howard, for 20 years. Named for their rural hometown, LaFollette, TN, the practice is comprised of 30 team members. They completed construction on their new location in October 2014 and their second Strategic Review (SR) with Cleinman Performance Partners.
Do you have a manager? Do you trust and empower your manager? Do you have a team of the “right people,” carefully hired, fully trained and empowered? Does your team have to run to you or your manager for direction and permission?
Members of Cleinman Performance Network proudly continued its tradition of charitable giving at the 2014 Chicago session meetings by raising over $52,000 for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. A dollar-for-dollar match from the Gordon Gund Foundation brought the total to $104,000. All charitable contributions will be used exclusively for research projects to cure blindness.
Cleinman Performance Partners is located in upstate New York, just south of Cooperstown. With a clientele that expands across North America, we remain a bit of a mystery to our local community. And so it is a rare treat for us to open our doors and host our members in the bucolic setting of America’s Hometown.
