As you rise in an organization, CEOs and high-potential C-Suite executives must integrate management and leadership skills in successively more accomplished ways. The new challenges also require leadership conversation skills that few executives instinctively possess and that are only now beginning to be taught in the top MBA schools and executive training programs.
Alan will pose questions that:
Invite you to reflect on and enhance how you manage and lead today
Challenge you to develop a vision for how you will manage and lead in the future
Encourage you to assist high potentials to do the same
The “Leadership Conversations” model shows you how to engage in effective conversations that create connection, alignment and cooperation among leaders and followers.
Join us as Alan S. Berson, Learning Director at Wharton, with an exclusive sneak peek of his new book Leadership Conversations, will draw critical distinctions between management and leadership mindsets. His model will show you how to engage in effective conversations that create connection, alignment and cooperation among leaders and followers in your organization.
