What Got You Here Won’t Get You There: Acquiring New Skills for the Next Level
Thursday, May 2 | 10:15-11:15am

The leadership journeys for men and women diverge dramatically in many respects but are very similar in this way: both genders tend to be promoted based on their domain expertise rather than the management and leadership skills necessary to succeed in the new role. How do you acquire the foundational management and leadership skills to prepare you for that next-level leader role? 
Take-aways include:

  • Understanding foundational leadership skills, including emotional intelligence.
  • Understanding the digital-age leadership competencies many organizations still struggle to embrace.
  • Insights from colleagues on foundational skills that work for them.
