Values Based Leadership Summit

 In June the GSQC/NNEAE held its third annual Leadership Summit.  This year’s event explored the nuances of “Values-Based Leadership” (VBL) and featured experienced leaders discussing this complex topic with newer and aspiring leaders.

As an example, keynote speaker, David Boynton, Co-founder and General Manager of 7th Settlement Brewery in Dover, shared how he resisted the pressure to have televisions in the bar in order to foster a “pub” or public house environment.  This initially resulted in some customer complaints and an empty Super Bowl Sunday, however committing to this value resulted in steady business as a gathering spot for the community.   This fall the restaurant will again lean on its values and be the first restaurant in New Hampshire to adopt a new pay scale including a no-tipping policy to support teamwork and equity of pay for all employees.

                

The Summit featured a segment, expertly facilitated by Suzanne Murphy (Founder, Performance Through Leadership), to help those in attendance identify the connection between values, behaviors, and results.  Eileen Groll Liponis (Executive Director of the NH Food Bank), Andy Moysenko (Owner, Advyce), and Janet Walsh (Director HR/Legal Counsel, Digital Prospectors) joined us for a panel of experienced leaders who shared their insights on VBL and answered questions from the audience.  Discussion topics included how to look at a situation from a different perspective – for example to use the value of optimism to find a positive path in a situation that at first appears to be negative; how to successfully bring existing values into a new leadership position; and managing the challenges of engaging the workforce in the organization’s values.

This event also celebrated PeoplesChoice Credit Union’s (PCU) Profile Recognition for their demonstrated Foundation of Excellence.   PCU is NNEAE’s first recognition recipient from the state of Maine.

The Leadership Summit was created to explore the nuances that help leaders become excellent leaders.  The design of the Summit implicitly draws on the Baldrige Category of Leadership and core value of Visionary Leadership with the goal that all participants leave with renewed energy, at least one idea that they can implement immediately, and other practices that they can work on for the long term.  We welcome your questions about VBL and suggestions for future Leadership Summits.
