Arbinger Institute: May 12th and 13th


After numerous EO Nashville members experienced Arbinger’s Mindset at a Regional Conference, they knew we needed to bring it to our members locally! This two-day workshop is transformational, especially for such a time as this. You will work to reveal two distinct mindsets from which people and organizations operate—a self-focused inward mindset and an others-inclusive outward mindset. 

Arbinger has a forty-year record of successfully helping organizational change efforts by equipping people to shift to an outward mindset. Studies show that organizations that focus on this kind of mindset change are four times more likely to succeed in organizational-change efforts than companies that focus only on changing behavior.

This program will help you turn outward by (1) shifting your mindsets, (2) equipping you and your leaders to invite outward mindset ways of working in teams, and (3) helping leaders to turn organizational systems and processes outward in order to invite and reward sustained, systemic change.

We are offering this workshop In-Person and Virtually. 
This program is valued at $895, but we will only be charging members $100! 
In-person guests are $300 and virtual guests are $200.

REGISTER HERE for the IN-PERSON event (space is limited: first-come, first-served)


It's REQUAL time!

We send a survey every March, to not only collect your financials for requalification purposes, but also to understand how much value you’re getting from your forum and from EO in general. Every member is required to take this survey, and we’d be so grateful if you’d go ahead and knock it out as soon as possible. We have also included a few important questions regarding our Strategic Alliance Partners. Now, more than ever, they are so important to our chapter and a big part of our success.

Our goal of collecting the financial data is not to hit contributing members when they’re down. At this point, we are just collecting information.

CLICK HERE to complete the quick survey, and please encourage those in your forum to do the same. The sooner we can get this survey completed by all, the more we can focus on providing a valuable experience for you!

Thank you so much!
