BB&T Corp. chairman John Allison has certainly shown his commitment to his new post at the Wake Forest University Schools of Business. Joining the faculty this summer as a distinguished professor of practice, Allison has chosen academia over quiet retirement.
The notion of retirement must be completely unfamiliar to him because he has now agreed to hold a series of seminars at Worrell to cultivate leadership values among the MBA candidates.
Here is a list of the seminars and links for registration. From what I know, these are only open to current students, but I would recommend calling (336) 758-5038 to verify:
Thurs., Oct. 8, 4-6 pm, Worrell 1109, topic: Vision/PurposeThurs., Oct. 15, 4-6 pm, Worrell 1108. topic: Strategy
Thurs., Oct. 22, 4-6 pm, Worrell 1109. topic: Coaching
Thurs., Nov. 12, 4-6 pm, Worrell 1102. topic: Ethical Behavior
There are also sessions set for 1 pm on those days.
The time of these seminars was arranged to accommodate students’ busy schedules. One idea might include having your team meet after attending a seminar. Space is limited, so you need to use the appropriate link to register for each session of the seminar.It should be a worthwhile investment of time!
