Dr. Pat Allen was presented with the “200 Club Achievement Award” on the occasion of her 200th guest lecture before Vistage International, Inc., a peer mentoring group that holds monthly meetings for CEOs, corporation presidents and other top executive decision makers throughout the country.
Pat is considered one of the organization’s top educational resources for executive leadership training. Rafael Pastor, chairman of Vistage, says “Today there’s one truism across the board in America, especially with Main Street businesses — people are faced with new circumstances and they need help to figure out what to do.” And he numbers Pat among his bullpen of select experts in executive coaching who have now become trusted advisors to top corporate leaders, respected experts in business leadership coaching and public-spirited citizens who have elevated themselves from a life of success to a life of significance.
Pat’s explained that her mission has been to drive home the importance that companies and the men and women who direct them must focus on what they want, and what they don’t want, where they want to go, and facilitating authentic communication within their organizations. Further, they must learn to accomplish their goals through strategies using honest negotiation, and not fear, intimidation or seduction. And she encourages top businessmen to channel their testosterone-driven competitive energies into creating a more civilized and technologically advanced world, creating modern social structures and industrial complexes and building toward the future.
We agree, and All of us here at the WANT® Institute are proud to be helping Dr. Pat Allen carry her message into the 21st Century.
