Bob Mills Furniture of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma gets the corporate staff of 28 together to do the High Impact Leaders seminar for two half day sessions. Bob Mills started his furniture business in 1971 in an old IGA grocery store building at 2625 S.W. 29th. The location remained there for 15 years. After years of concentrated effort, the business grew and, in the late 1980s, Mills moved the business to its present location, an 110,000 square foot facility at 3600 W. Reno in Oklahoma City. Jill Hudson, HR Director for Bob Mills Furniture and Bob Mills decided that with the rapid growth of the company and the corporate entity only being about two years old they wanted to bring together the team to get them on the same page. The High Impact Leaders seminar is a powerful leadership training seminar that focuses on developing soft-skills that help participants become stronger, more confident leaders and managers. Skills focused on in this program include public speaking, listening and communicating, people skills and how to motivate people, memory, problem-solving, meeting skills, and the ability to develop more leaders within the organization. The 28 Leadership Principals used by The Leaders Institute are a vital tool in changing the habits of people to help build trust and rapport, resolve conflict, gain buy in and building the next generation of leaders in any organization. Many comments from the group about how easy this will be to apply in their day to day operations with the desk reference at their reach. “The Leadership Principles help a lot on outlook, attitude and ability to look at things in a different light/ perspective”. The breakout sessions are helpful in getting the group to realize one another’s strengths and communicating effectively even when they work in different departments. The five step problem solving process is a fast easy way to generate possible ideas as well as create buy-in from your team concerning implementation of the solution. “The problem solving time was a great exercise to use in our daily/weekly meetings. Most of us walked away with a few things to work on at the office”
