20 Attributes to Highly Successful Managers: Insights from Danny Klinefelter

On January 5, 2017 the NY State Agricultural Society held its 185th Annual Meeting and Agricultural Forum in Liverpool, NY. Dr. Danny Klinefelter, Professor and Extension Economist from Texas A&M University gave the keynote address: Attributes of Highly Successful Farmers and Collaborative Arrangements. Provided is a synopsis of that address with some embellishments. I only hope I can do Dr. Klinefelter justice.

These attributes are not size, or even industry, dependent. They apply just as easily to the CEO of a large multi-national corporation as they will to the brew master of a start-up microbrewery. See how many you can check off as, "Yes, I do that." Read the 20 Attributes of Highly Successful Managers

"It is an economic reality that for your business to succeed and continue successfully beyond you, management must learn, adapt and continuously improve at the rate set by the leading edge of the competition and not by your comfort zone, otherwise you'll be falling behind, even if you're moving ahead." --- Dr. Danny Klinefelter

"To remain independent, many producers are going to need to become more interdependent." -- Dr. Danny Klinefelter
