You are Already Leading, Just Not Frequently Enough

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Jim Kouzes, Dean’s Executive Fellow of Leadership, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University

Organizations report having major concerns about a lack of strong leadership. Why is this? It’s definitely not because there aren’t enough people capable of leading. Research shows that one person in a million lacks the skills to lead. It’s because of inhibiting assumptions, failure to create context for growth, and not making leadership development a daily habit.

In this webcast, Jim Kouzes will present a framework for reinventing how individuals and organizations approach the leadership development at all levels. You will learn:

  • the evidence that leadership capability is both needed and also more readily available than popularly assumed
  • the Five Fundamentals of Becoming an Exemplary Leader and their implications for the development of leaders
  • practical steps emerging leaders can take to put their leadership development into action and how HR professionals can support them.
