Cultivating Leadership - Stimulating Ideas and Passion

This session answers the question: “How can we instill and grow leadership capability in our organization?”  Every individual regardless of job function or level, can influence the depth of leadership demonstrated and cultivated in their organization.  Every employee should play a role in elevating the team’s ability to influence and lead. The key leadership nuggets learned during my 15+ years working with over 50 organizations as a professional human resources executive and consultant are distilled to their most essential form.  During this session, Susan explores with the audience how a leadership mind-set is fostered. The specific activities an organization can take to elevate leadership capability are discussed.
