How Enterprise Leaders Build Game-Changing Organizations

with Doug Ready
Founder & CEO International Consortium for Executive Development Research

October 25th
7:30 am - 10:00 am

C-Suite teams around the world have at least one common objective—how to build and sustain organizations that are purpose-driven, performance-focused, and principles-led. However, this is easier said than done. Whether it involves large-scale transformation or mobilizing the enterprise to pursue an ambitious vision, leaders confront a series of embedded tensions that create obstacles in their journeys.

During this special CHO Group session, Doug Ready will draw upon his research, writing and practice with leading companies around the world to identify the skillsets and mindsets required for enterprise leaders in order to create high-achieving, purposeful and values-driven companies. Doug's research shows that skillsets alone are not enough—that helping to cultivate an enterprise leadership mindset in tomorrow's leaders is the difference maker. But, can we help people learn things like perspective, context, resiliency and a sense of community greater than ourselves?
