I am delighted and excited for the upcoming virtual on-line seminar with a good friend, Jay Desko. This seminar is scheduled for Thursday October 20, at 11:00 AM EDT. Jay and I have worked together in an academic environment, consulting to clients, and in our church.
This seminar, ‘Perception is Reality – Is Perception Reality in a Family Business?’ takes an in-depth look at understanding how perceptions can influence our relationships, performance, and the family business. It is important to understand that perceptions develop as a result of a complex combination of factors including concrete experiences, cultural beliefs, and family and social influences. Perceptions are often treated as “the truth” from those who hold them, even if the perception is inaccurate, therefore making them very powerful. Perceptions can be changed, although not easily, through honest dialogue and changed behaviors.
“There is a way to gain an understanding of perceptions others have of us in our family, business, and organizations.”
Jay and I will explore how a 360-review system can support the development of an individual, the family, and the business. Jay is the Executive Director of the Center for Ministry Advancement and serves on the Senior Leadership Team at Calvary Church in Souderton, PA. He holds a B.S. in Bible, and M.Ed. in Instructional Systems, and a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and Leadership. Jay brings experience in the areas of organizational assessment, leadership coaching, decision-making, strategic improvement and board development.
