KEYNOTE: Partnership is the New Leadership—Cultivating Commitment, Collaboration, and Consensus

Thursday, June 18
9:40 a.m.–11:20 a.m.
2 hours CPE
Leadership is NOT about your name on the door, your years in the business, the title you hold, or where your office is located. It is about your people and the significance, value, and connection you share with them. Bottom line? Relevance Equals Influence. Which equals commitment, collaboration, trust, teamwork, and performance. Ready to make a transformational change in your business? Raise your relevance and increase your influence. Leading with fear or trading on titles is no longer effective. In their place, partnership, communication, inclusion, and connection have become game-changers. Ultimately, we are in the people business, which is, without question, the business of building relationships. How? Using specific, time-tested skills and solutions to cultivate trust, encourage collaboration, deliver value, inspire ideas and insights, and yes, fuel commitment amongst team members to do more, reach higher, and develop their own leadership skills.
