Tipping Sacred Cows: Kick Bad Habits that Masquerade as Virtues
January 18, 2018

Rebecca Eastham Photo“Sacred cows” exist and are revered in every workplace – they are the conventional wisdom concepts that tell you to try your best, work well with others and produce excellent work. But these cherished nuggets of advice, in practice, have a dark side that can lead to unintended consequences.

On January 26 as part of the ongoing Elevate Leadership series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, join Rebecca Eastham, Executive Director of Business and Industry Services at Meridian Technology Center, who will explore some dangerous ways your virtues as a leader can backfire. Based on the best-selling book by Jake Breeden, Eastham will focus on strategies to overcome the allure and achieve real results related to Breeden’s seven common sacred cows at work: balance, collaboration, creativity, excellence, fairness, passion and preparation.

Eastham works with business and industry clients to identify training and development needs throughout their organizations and matches resources to assist in meeting those needs. She provides assistance in the areas of human resources, strategic planning, team building and organizational development. She holds a master’s in human relations with an emphasis in employee development from the University of Oklahoma and a doctorate in human sciences from Oklahoma State University.

Elevate Leadership sessions are held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Meridian’s campus. Registration is $15 per session and includes lunch.
