Born Leaders Are Unicorns: Here's a Development Strategy for the Rest of Us

Only 7% of executives think their companies develop leaders effectively. In this session with one of the world’s leading authors and experts on leadership, you’ll learn the mindset that’s absolutely critical for effective leadership and an applicable game plan for transforming leaders at all levels.

Specifically, participants will learn:

  • Why an outward mindset is critical to successful leadership and organizations.
  • How to shift to an outward mindset.
  • A set of powerful tools that can be applied immediately that help develop an outward mindset personally and organizationally.
