Holding North American Manufacturing Together
YPO/EO Key Staff Learning Day with MAP & AJ
November 14, 2019 – St. Louis, MO
On November 14, 2019, AJ Adhesives and Mid America Packaging attended the YPO/EO Key Staff Day. Jenny, Emily, Maria, Julie, Gene, Meghann, and Andy attended the learning event held at Maritz’s Corporate HQ. Business, as we’ve known it once relied on human rationality. Breakthroughs in behavioral science tell us the secret to driving success in business is no longer a game of leveraging knowledge, it is more about understanding what drives human behavior.
Chris Voss, a former FBI hostage negotiator, educator, and author of “Never Split the Difference” was the Keynote Speaker. Chris says, “The only sustainable competitive advantage is tolearn faster than your competition. And if you want to learn fast, you have to be really coachable!” Other speakers were Charlotte Blank, Maritz’s Chief Behavioral Science Officer, and Lamar Pierce who is a Professor of Strategy at Washington University as well as a Brookings Institute Senior Fellow. It was a great day for learning as a team.
