8:30-9:30 General Session   Four Disciplines of an Influential Leader
There is an over-abundance of information on leadership and management. What if you could just focus on four important actions that would most significantly shape who you are and how you lead? Using our experience in coaching hundreds of leaders as well as from growing support from research, we have identified four disciplines that can make the difference   between an average leader and an exceptional one:

  • The importance of grit and endurance ● The benefits of relating well to others
  • The power of re-framing the way you think ● The significance of managing your credibility
