Do you aspire to lead with greater impact?

For many successful professionals who have built their career on technical expertise, the transition to bigger leadership roles is often filled with tripwires. Aspiring leaders must learn to make more strategic contributions, work through strategic networks inside and outside the firm, and adapt or even reinvent their leadership styles.

These “intangible” competencies are very different than the technical and operational skills required earlier in one’s career. Those who continue to rely on what has made them successful so far inevitably derail. In this session, based on her book Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader, Herminia Ibarra will turn the usual “think first and then act” philosophy on its head.

You will learn:

  • How to redefine your job in order to make more strategic contributions
  • To diversify your network so that you connect to, and learn from, a bigger range of stakeholders
  • To become more playful with your self-concept, allowing your familiar—and possibly outdated—leadership style to evolve.
