Faculty Breakfast: It’s Not What You Know, It’s How You Learn

Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at 7:30 AM until 9:00 AM

The Umstead Hotel & Spa
100 Woodland Pond Drive
Cary, NC 27513

Join us on June 12 for a lecture featuring one of our award-winning faculty members who teaches in our Executive MBA program. Brad Staats integrates work in operations management and human behavior to understand how and under what conditions individuals, teams, and organizations can perform their best. You'll leave breakfast inspired and armed with strategies you can start applying at work that day. 

Keep learning, or risk becoming irrelevant. It’s a truism in today’s economy: the only constant is change. Technological automation is making jobs less routine and more cognitively challenging. Globalization means you’re competing with workers around the world. Simultaneously, the internet and other communication technologies have radically increased the potential impact of individual knowledge. The relentless dynamism of these forces shaping our lives has created a new imperative: we must strive to become dynamic learners. In every industry and sector, dynamic learners outperform their peers and realize higher impact and fulfillment by learning continuously and by leveraging that learning to build yet more knowledge.

Breakfast will be provided.
