- LISTENING LIKE A LEADER: Establishing followership, building strong client relationships, coaching top talent, collaborating across silos, and influencing change all depend on a leader’s ability to develop listening as a superpower.
- LEADING WITH AGILITY: New market forces, strategic pivots, and the organizational changes that come with them all require new performance choices: comfort with ambiguity and uncertainty, increased collaboration and creativity, smart use of talent, and calculated risk-taking.
- INFLUENCING WITH PRESENCE AND STORY: Whether they’re motivating a team, selling to a new client, or giving a TED Talk, leaders need to “show up” with presence and authenticity, connect with their audience and take them on a compelling journey.
