Much of the focus in a transformation is about changing the work inside front line processes while paying too little attention to the critical work involved in managing and leading organizations.

In this event, we'll examine the systemic gaps leaders typically face in transformations, such as unachievable strategies, unclear priorities, leadership overburden, misaligned processes and detrimental behaviors that are harming the overall business. This interactive session is a pragmatic, hands-on approach to building a framework for engaging your organization in great leader work. It will help you think through several key issues that you can then use with the rest of your leadership team to develop a leadership path within your transformation.
