John Casey Talks Leadership at Ensemble’s Executive Retreat

John Casey, a career development expert, spoke on effective leadership as a guest educator at Ensemble Travel Group’s 2017 Executive Retreat for U.S. members held earlier this month at Wild Dunes Resort, outside of Charleston.

Speaking to a group of nearly 90 Ensemble members and supplier sponsors, Casey said building an individual’s self-esteem is a leader’s most important job – one that’s accomplished through understanding the importance, formation, and the reshaping of that confidence. The director of corporate learning for 2logical, Casey’s two-day workshop, “The Art of Leadership & Science of Management,” was built around research, case studies, and one-on-one interviews with Ensemble members conducted in advance of the retreat.

Michael Benz of Professional Travel in Cleveland, OH, said that the presentation connected the theory of leadership with workplace realities.

“The business world is full of good managers, but to be an effective leader is a totally different mindset and focus,” said Libbie Rice, co-president.

The annual event is part of Ensemble’s series of professional development forums to help agency owners and teams advance their executive expertise in the business of travel. In addition to Casey’s training, attendees participated in one-on-one partner meetings, a state-of-the-organization update by Rice and Co-President Lindsay Pearlman, as well as well as a team-building scavenger hunt, which ended with a dinner at the historic Thomas Bennet House in downtown Charleston.

John Casey will also be the guest educator at the 2017 Ensemble Executive Retreat for Canadian members set for April 23-26 at Queen's Landing in Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON.
