About the Speaker:
Kent Hutchison, Founder/Principal, C.J. Baxter Group
Kent Hutchison wanted to be a Lumberjack, but he couldn't hack it.
How can one even think about sharpening the saw, when you are always busy sawing? Most folks, as well as organizations, put it off to their detriment. A woodsman was once asked, "What would you do if you if had just five minutes to chop down a tree?" He answered, "I would spend the first two and a half minutes sharpening my ax." The key is continuous improvement.
Kent did become a Lumberjack in one way. A graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University, home of the Lumberjacks in Nacogdoches, Texas - , Kent has more than 25 years of facilitating and leading others in their developmental journey. He is a believer of the need for continuous improvement in employee development; as well as personal leadership development.
Kent regularly facilitates leadership and team retreats for organizations and businesses. He is popular with both executive and blue-collar leaders - utilizing his experience as both a former university administrator and as a former manager in the petrochemical and construction environment.
