LEADERSHIP DRIVES BUSINESS OUTCOMES—NOW MORE THAN EVER. Today’s senior leaders face disruption and challenges that were unfathomable just 5 short years ago. Our current business environment is complex and constantly changing, and organizations must evolve to keep pace. This responsibility falls primarily on the leaders, who must help their teams become more efficient, more effective, and prepared to tackle new challenges and opportunities.

Key Leadership Takeaways:

  • Leaders of organizations must build the capacity and competency required to deal with this escalating rate of change.
  • Uncover the mindsets and assumptions that fuel performance—and those that get in the way of results.
  • Move away from reactive and potentially damaging behaviors and towards creative leadership, freeing up resources, time, money, and energy.
  • Embrace leadership assessments and development:
    • There are 9 different leadership styles and each has its own gifts and blind spots. When you understand your natural style, you can make the most of your strengths and overcome leadership weaknesses. And when you understand the styles of others, you can speak to them in a language they can hear, rather than getting caught up in what seems like perplexing behavior.
