Embracing the “Owner” Mentality with Special Guest & Upcoming 2016 Conference Speaker, Daren Martin, PhD.

As an administrative professional, you probably think of yourself as an employee. You provide a service to your organization, and in return, they provide a paycheck. But what would life be like if you were to shift your mindset and instead of thinking like an employee, you thought like an owner? In today’s competitive business world, this is perhaps the most essential hidden ingredient for exceptional career success and professional satisfaction—and it’s 100% within your control.

In this free webinar replay, Joan and her special guest, Daren Martin, PhD, are exploring the revolutionary concept of the ownership mentality—what it is, why it matters, and how to develop it. Daren is the author of “A Company of Owners,” a book that’s taking the corporate world by storm, transforming how organizations operate and how employees think. We’re thrilled that Daren will also be a keynote speaker at the Office Dynamics 23rd Annual Conference for Administrative Excellence in October!
