This Month’s Meeting
So, what does it take to become a successful solo entrepreneur? How does a solo entrepreneur build a sustainable practice over time? George Dow has been a solo entrepreneur since 2010 and has helped many of his clients and peers move in a similar direction. George will share learnings from his entrepreneurial experience and include lessons from others who have followed a similar path. There will be an opportunity for small group discussions to help you personalize and integrate the suggestions George will present.
After 21 years as an executive career transition consultant at Right Management, George Dow started his solo practice in 2010. Since 1989, George has helped over 2,500 business, non-profit and government leaders improve their career transition effectiveness, ensure “fit” in their future direction, and review and help shape the strategic alignment of their chosen path. He helps his clients through assessments, identification of options, and coaching to achieve their desired outcomes, both professionally and personally.
George has also taught graduate and undergraduate career management courses at the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management and was a Faculty of the Year nominee in 2005.

He received the Jules Kerlan Lifetime Achievement award from the Minnesota Career Development Association in 2009.
Our June-8 meeting featured Terry Wu
2+ million people have learned the Neuroscience of Human Decisions from Dr. Terry Wu. Dr. Wu received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Vanderbilt University. He has a 35-year career in Neuroscience. In his studies of applying Neuroscience to strengthen leadership, Dr. Wu found that leadership development focuses primarily on teaching leaders how to lead but not Why People Follow. He also found that leadership development relies on rare anecdotes and personal stories instead of science. These two weaknesses exacerbated the widespread leadership failures brought about by the pandemic. Dr. Wu’s research into the Neuroscience of Leadership has uncovered many unique and valuable insights that empower leaders to make their leadership more predictable and successful.
Thanks Terry for a great Learning Hour.
We are looking forward to a great meeting and thank you all for your support and wisdom.
We have a new sponsor from now until the end of the year and would like to thank Kare Sime of Your HR Navigator for making our meetings possible.
