OEN CEO Roundtable with Dick Eaton: How to Handle Those Thorny People Problems


Is your time and energy tied up in tough key people issues? Do they distract you, disturb you, and pull your focus off of key business drivers? While human talent challenges pose obstacles, they can also present opportunities.

Dick Eaton, CEO of Leapfrog Innovations, will coach you through your real-world situations in real time using his executive coaching experience, models, best practices, and also accessing the collective wisdom of the CEO group attending.

Bring the thorniest people problems that are holding you and your company back. You’ll work toward practical solutions while maintaining boundaries that ensure that what you want to keep private is kept private.

Here are some examples to prompt your prep:

  • A key player is under-performing, no longer pulling his/her weight on the team
  • Two crucial people are constantly in conflict, creating distraction, wasting time, and breaking the flow of the team
  • As the company pivots, your partner no longer has the skill or commitment to contribute in a key way
  • Your people don’t get onboard with your vision and/or strategy
  • A key person/team is not meeting deadlines
  • You have doubts about a key person’s ethics
  • One of your key recent hires treats people in a way that’s demoralizing
  • A key person’s attention to detail and inability to delegate is creating a bottleneck
