Program Highlights

Below is just a sample of the sessions you’ll experience as part of the program.

Scaling Up Excellence

Leaders are in a race to build organizations that are not only bigger but better. A problem, however, is how does one restore the soul of a startup in large companies. We draw on award-winning research and Silicon Valley case studies to present practical tools to avoid scaling traps, and to create domino chains of excellence in organizations as they strive to sustain scale.

Leading Change

Leading change requires building influence and creating alliances so that others want your efforts to be successful. It requires vision and the ability to turn that vision into reality.

Other Selected Sessions:

  • Neuroscience and the Connection to Exemplary Leadership
  • Acting with Power
