April 20, 2018 | 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


Back by popular demand, Glenn Furuya is once again partnering with HEC to help you develop practical and transformational building blocks for peak individual and team performance that can lead to organizational success.

Journeying through a “typical” day, participants will learn to:

  • Start your day on the right foot
  • Why being an effective supervisor is like being a “linebacker” in football
  • Conduct a focused and meaningful briefing
  • Get things done and to delegate
  • Avoid the primary cause of leadership failure
  • Provide extraordinary customer service
  • Develop peak performing team members
  • Correct inappropriate behaviors or poor performance
  • Listen and handle complaints

Comments from a past participant in Glenn Furuya’s program

“I have had the good fortune of listening to and learning from numerous motivational speakers and leadership gurus.  Glenn is second to none as compared to these experts and I feel so fortunate to have him be an integral part of our success.” - Norman Okimoto, President, Hawaiian Tel Federal Credit Union
