At a time when leaders, leading, and leadership are in full view (and full of scrutiny), leadership development is making headlines – sometimes for the wrong reasons! Despite our best efforts, programs don’t always yield the desired results. Yet for many of us, it’s where we spend a lot of our professional time. How do we turn this around?
Come and experience a process and methods that will help you broaden your approach to developing leaders for greater impact. Leave with tools you can use immediately to enhance your efforts. In this session you will learn a design thinking process and how to apply design thinking tools to enhance your leadership development programs.
