problems near the top of the column.  This category of Managerial Challenges involves hiring, firing and motivating individuals to devote their best efforts to executing their responsibilities.

At the 2017 Session members of the first year class will participate in a case discussing these Managerial Challenges lead by Jeff Turner, SVP and Director of the People Department, First Florida Integrity Bank, Naples.  In addition to his extensive banking environment Jeff has worked for PepsiCo., Frito-Lay, All State Insurance and IBM.  He brings to the casework a wide range of experience dealing with people in different professional environments.

Case groups typically have twenty or fewer participants and the groups are structured so that banks of different sizes located in different states are represented. Small groups provide the students the opportunity to discuss personnel problems they may be experiencing at their banks and to get feedback from knowledgeable faculty and fellow students.
