Multipliers: How Great Leaders Maximize Their Organization's Effectiveness

Categories: TAHRA Program Meeting
Presented by Sean Kouplen
Chairman & CEO, Regent Bank

In this presentation, Regent Bank Chairman & CEO Sean Kouplen will discuss how multipliers help the people around them grow and maximize their effectiveness, thereby propelling their organization to achieve goals they never imagined. Kouplen will share key leadership insights and specific strategies Regent Bank has used to achieve 50% annual growth and many ‘best places to work’ awards over the last ten years.

At this program you will:

  1. Learn strategies for improving employee engagement and corporate culture scores.
  2. Learn strategies for developing a high-performance culture.
  3. Learn why certain leaders grow their employees while others don’t (and look for those leaders in the future.)
  4. Re-evaluate ourselves as leaders to determine if we are multipliers or diminishers.

Sean Kouplen is the Chairman & CEO of Regent Bank, a small business investor, and a popular author and speaker.

Since that time, the bank has expanded to Tulsa and OKC, growing from $70 million in assets to over $500 million. Regent Bank has won many national and statewide awards including Inc Magazine’s Best Places to Work and AIB’s Extraordinary Bank Award, given to the top 1% of community banks in the country.

Kouplen has authored three best-selling books and speaks to universities and business groups throughout the country. He was also the cofounder of Bixby Outreach Center, a nonprofit organization that serves needy families, and Southpoint Church, where he currently serves as an Elder.
