The Practice of Organizational Leadership

You lead people; you manage things.

Running an organization requires both leading and managing. Truly successful organizations are headed by people who practice both arts in conjunction. Indeed, it is the overlap of the two where the magic happens.

Presenter Andy Foerster draws on a variety of organizational leadership challenges, from Boy Scout troops to nuclear submarines to manufacturing companies. There are common threads whether you work in military, a non-profit, or very much for-profit company:

  • It is always the people that keep an organization running and bringing delight to its customers and that help you thrive.
  • Organizations must be managed through a system and set of processes that bring predictability, consistency, and sustainability.
  • Perfection is unattainable so run your organization like a practice, learning and growing every day.
  • There is no single, one-right-way to do something.

While there is no single right way to lead people, there are certainly good practices and skills in working with a team. Come learn valuable insights that will help your approach to leading an organization told through enjoyable and relatable stories.


All Business Catalysts talks are free to attend though, as space is limited, we do ask attendees to register at:

Our sessions are hosted by Redbrick Financial Partners in their team room on the 4th floor at 4055 Executive Park Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45241  (in north Sharonville, located right of I-275).
