“Companies that aspire toward the ideals of improving people’s lives outperform their competitors by 400 percent,” explained Mike Sipple, Jr., chair of the NKY Leadercast Steering Committee and president of Centennial, Inc. “Employees who feel that they are working toward a good cause show increased productivity of up to 30 percent and workers who are able to make a social or an environmental impact on the job are more satisfied by a 2:1 ratio.”

The theme of this year’s Leadercast Live is Powered by Purpose.

More than 70 percent of people consider an organization’s environmental  and/or social impact when deciding where to work.

“Purpose is what defines us, drives us, and empowers us. It is the glue for an organization and the fuel for an individual.  Today’s organization can’t rely on old practices. A new organizational style is emerging — and at the center of its driving force is the igniting power of purpose,” Sipple said. “It’s our job to inspire and train leaders in our community,” said Sipple.

The conference will equip attendees to create their own visionary path, uncover their purpose and strengthen their organization’s “why,” when attracting and retaining talent.

The one-day program is affordable ranging from $90 for individuals to $680 each for a table of eight and CEUs are available. A variety of partnership packages are also available and range from $1500 to $5,000. These include a reserved table of eight.

The 2017 presenting partners for NKY Leadercast  are: Centennial, Inc., Chick-fil-A Northern Kentucky, Core Consulting Group, DG Advisors, Gilchrist Group, NKY Foundation, Republic Bank and Vistage.
