Positive Attracts Positive

That's according to PENworks conference keynoter, PJ Fleck, football coach for the MN Gophers.  Even Badger fans will find this key of interest.

Check out the event schedule and registration details.  Take advantage of early bird rates!

Fleck will share his philosophy on teamwork, his insights on building a positive and successful culture, and his approach to developing strong leaders and achieving excellent results -- concepts that work in sports but also in any business, organization, or community.
