Make valuable connections by attending the upcoming discussion on The Crux Move: How to Climb Above the Competition at Metropolitan State University!
The morning will begin at 7:30 a.m. with open networking and breakfast, followed by the discussion 8 a.m. Don't forget to bring plenty of business cards!
In rock climbing, “crux moves” are the most challenging moments of the entire route. They often require you to push yourself in a way no other part of the climb does.
Every profession has its own crux moves. Hire people who nail those moves, and you can laugh at your competition as they stagnate back on the ground. Falter on the crux moves, and the best outcome you can hope for is a bit of backtracking. The worst outcome? Well, let’s just say that the metaphorical freefall has a potentially gruesome ending.
In this session, you will learn:
- Why “crux moves” matter, and why you should ignore them at your company’s peril.
- How to identify the “crux moves” in the jobs within your company.
- How to revamp your hiring process to ensure that you’re surrounded by people who can nail the crux moves and get you to the top.
By the end of this discussion, you’ll know how to tell whether the people you’ve hired will help you reach the top -- or leave you dangling from a fraying rope.
