Are Your Strengths Holding You Back?
Speaker: Sally Helgesen
Everything amazing about yourself got to where you are now. But the very skills and habits that bring you success early in your career can also hold you back from moving to a higher level. Leadership guru Sally Helgesen discusses habits you have to let go of in order to reach your full potential. And she will provide proven techniques for shedding behaviors that no longer serve you or may hold you back in the future.
We spend a lot of our day talking at each other. Imagine the alignment achieved if we prioritized the time it takes to speak with each other. Dialogue that goes beyond powerpoint presentations and directives will enable you to move quickly and create real connection with your team--all while building professional and personal growth around you. This session is not for the fainthearted: it can be uncomfortable to admit that we are shortchanging ourselves, our colleagues and our organizations. This reminds executives that everyone has something worth hearing and something worth being said. When the most important thinking has the chance to get expressed, everyone wins.
