The theme of the 2023 Fall Good Leadership Breakfast Series is: Good Leadership Is a Team Sport.
It’s timely because the Covid pandemic and work-from-home accelerated a cultural movement most business leaders already knew: the hierarchical, chain-of-command approach to organizational performance has been replaced by a collaborative, teams-of-teams approach. The old way was to follow the rules. What’s working today is a shared commitment environment where people are freely working on many teams—with a thrive-together mentality.
Tap into the Momentum of Good Leaders
The Fall Series features three exceptional leaders who know how to create a teams-of-teams environment to help employees and customers thrive and win together.
