ART OF LEADERSHIP, THE - ONE TOUCHPOINT AT A TIME

With Doug Conant

  • The transformative power of a human connection.
  • Guiding others with a "listen, frame, and advance" mindset.
  • Why inspiring trust is critical to enduring leadership success.

    Early in his career, after nine years with General Foods, Doug Conant was unexpectedly and summarily laid off from his job. It was devastating, he recalls, yet kind words from an outplacement counselor not only got him through it, but helped shaped his approach to leadership success. It's in the moments of saying "just the right thing at just the right time" that leaders can make a positive, constructive impact on others.

    To sustain the impact of these touchpoints in an enduring way requires adhering to six guiding principles of leadership that he describes, along with inspiring examples of how this can be done. First, think about where you want to end up in your career, and plan accordingly. Be able to make the hard decisions, but be sensitive to soft issues. Be tough-minded with standards and tender-hearted with people. Make a personal connection to the agendas of others to form an enduring relationship. Stay ever alert to what matters most with your strategy, your people, and your actions. And finally, never stop working at leadership: it's the most important thing you do.

    STRATEGY AND THE PURPOSE-DRIVEN LEADER

    With Cynthia Montgomery

  • How Gucci achieved the most dramatic turnaround in fashion history.
  • The danger of contentment and how success can kill your organization.
  • Why every single employee-at every level-must know your strategy.

    In the past 25 years, thousands of articles have been written about strategy, but virtually none about the leadership vital for doing it well. Strategy has been transformed from an art to a science-but science alone is not enough. Cynthia Montgomery makes the case for bringing people back into the equation. Though you start with ideas, you need leaders to construct a company that brings these ideas to fruition. Leadership is required to define your purpose and form a management model that carries it out.

    One exercise Montgomery suggests is to think about death: the death of your business. What would the world be like without it? Would it be the same? If you don't make a difference, nobody will mourn you when you're gone. And if they won't miss you then, how much do they need you now? Knowing what makes you matter to your customers is critical-but even that is not enough. Whatever constitutes strategic advantage today will eventually change. That's why you can't outsource strategy. It takes leadership to watch over an organization, make the hard choices, provide clarity and alignment, and keep everyone fired up and moving ahead together.

    THE ART OF NON-LOGICAL LEADERSHIP

    By Jeff Leiken

    Sometimes, the best solution for a particular problematic situation is not the one conventional wisdom or socially accepted norms might otherwise suggest is appropriate. The Art of Non-Logical Leadership makes the case for the fact that exceptional leaders not only make unpopular decisions on occasion, they often make illogical ones at times. The DVD explains why sometimes leaders need to follow their gut instincts and to trust their intuition. In that regard, leaders need to learn when to listen to their head, as well as when to ignore it. The DVD is designed to provide a roadmap for doing the right things, in the right way, at the right time.

    Among the topics covered:

  • Intuition and instinct defined
  • Intellect vs. intuition
  • No: how did you know?
  • Yes: how did you know?
  • Intuitions cannot be trained, but instincts can be
  • Doing many of the right things, in the right way, at the right time

    LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM THE GRIDIRON

    With Steve Young

  • The metaphysics of "throwing blind."
  • How creative tension focuses your attention and ups your game.
  • Why everyone on the team must be held accountable.

    How do you complete a pass to Jerry Rice, who is wide open, when you can't see over a wall of defensive linemen? In this fast-paced and highly entertaining Stanford video presentation, Steve Young explains that you can indeed complete a game-winning touchdown pass by learning to anticipate where Jerry Rice will be and then "throwing blind." Solving a seemingly insurmountable problem with a workaround was an early lesson he learned as a young quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers.

    Giving us glimpses of his experience on the field-from ignominious interceptions to come-from-behind wins-with self-deprecating humor and passion for the game, Mr. Young shares his lifelong takeaways. How being pushed beyond his comfort zone by a tireless coach generated the creative tension needed to keep him focused and take his game to another level. How a large and diverse team that can surmount its cultural, racial, geographic and socio-economic differences will and be become the stronger team for it. And how individual accountability starts at the top and has to permeate the team in order for the team to succeed.

    COLLECTIVE LEADERSHIP: HOW TO UNLEASH PRODUCTIVITY, POTENTIAL AND POWER OF PURPOSE

    With Jim Quigley

  • Achieve your organization's goals through effective and deliberate collaboration.
  • How to identify the eight key archetypes of leadership.

    Modern management theory has us moving away from a command and control style of management toward a more collaborative style of collective leadership. According to Jim Quigley, this need not be an either-or discussion; some processes within your organizational hierarchy will lend themselves to collaboration, while others will call for a traditional top-down approach.

    Based on the results of a major, global research project at Deloitte, which includes case studies of companies such as Apple, Marriott and Tata, this session explores what organizations can learn from innovative leadership styles and how leaders can get people to work together effectively toward their defined goals.

    MAKING EMPLOYEES BETTER BY HELPING THEM GET WORSE

    With David Rendall

    Are you frustrated by disengaged and unproductive employees? Are you looking for better strategies for improving employee performance?

    Research shows that most people are not committed to their jobs and the way we currently manage employees does even more to harm, instead of help, their performance. We think our employees are broken, treat them like they are broken, and then wonder why they don't work. Instead of attacking people's weaknesses, we need to find the strength that is hidden inside their apparently negative characteristics.

    It is time to stop trying to create well-rounded and balanced employees. We need people that are unbalanced. We need freaks. This session will explore four essential strategies for improving employee engagement by turning our teams, departments or organizations into freak factories.

    GEN Y DECODED: INSIGHTS AND TACTICS FOR LEADERS

    With Kit Yarrow

  • They're not just young, they're different.
  • Why meaningful work may trump salary as a motivator.
  • How Gen Y and Boomers can help each other.

    Today's young workers are a new breed, thanks to two unique forces in their upbringing. Raised during the self-esteem movement, they are often self-confident and used to attention. And the first generation to grow up with technology, they work fast and expect fast results. In the workforce, they can seem demanding, even disrespectful of authority, especially the occasional "roaring tiger" with an inflated sense of entitlement.

    Leaders that adjust their communication styles and expectations will succeed in connecting with and motivating this group. Dr. Yarrow's tips for effectively managing Gen Y include providing context, relevance, and purpose for their work. Give frequent, personal feedback and recognize their unique skills. To counter boredom, stay innovative in practices and technology, provide opportunities for learning, travel, or career development. Perhaps most important, protect your best employees from the roaring tigers.

    VALUES-BASED LEADER, THE

    With Harry Kraemer

  • The four essential principles of values-based leadership.
  • How to identify your core values and what matters most to you.
  • Focus on doing the right thing rather than being right all the time.

    After a twenty-five-year career with multi-billion-dollar Baxter International, including serving as chairman and CEO, Harry Kraemer shares, in this candid and entertaining discussion, practical advice on how to lead while staying true to your moral compass. Values-based leadership is possible for anyone to achieve, at any point in a career, by adhering to four guiding principles of behavior.

    The first principle, ongoing self-reflection, helps you identify your core values and goals and what you truly stand for. The second, balance, is the ability to see more than one side to a story, giving you insight into the issues and tradeoffs and how you'll make decisions. The third, true self-confidence, is accepting your strengths and weaknesses, knowing you can improve. And the fourth, genuine humility, stems from never forgetting where you came from and keeping your leadership role in perspective.

    GOOD BOSS, BAD BOSS: HOW TO MASTER THE ART OF LEADERSHIP

    With Robert Sutton

  • The toxic tandem, the mum effect, and other challenges to being a good boss.
  • Why good bosses make it safe to disagree.
  • How to predict the most effective leaders in an organization.

    Great bosses are self-obsessed-but not for egotistical reasons. The best are those who understand their people's opinions of them and what it's like to work for them. This is no easy task. People in power tend to focus on their own needs over the needs of others. They also believe they have a stronger positive influence over their people than they actually do. From peer-reviewed research and case studies, Professor Sutton found truly in-tune leaders share five hallmark characteristics.

    Good bosses are "perfectly assertive": they are aware of people's reactions to them, and adjust, knowing when to push or back off. They have the "attitude of wisdom," dancing on the edge of overconfidence, but with a healthy dose of self doubt and humility. They use a "small wins" strategy, framing big, hairy goals in terms of small, manageable steps. And they eliminate the negatives in an organization, such as competitive superstars or rotten apples. Finally, the best bosses serve as a "human shield," protecting their people from harm, distractions, and indignities.

    MANAGEMENT STYLES 2: FOUR CASE STUDIES

    Textbooks speak of three management styles - autocratic, democratic and laissez faire. But how neatly do people fit into these categories? Lively case studies show what happens in the real world.

    Angel or devil? Notoriously autocratic manager Tony Spence has found religion! When his assistant comes late, he forgives him. But then his patience snapsíK

    Limits of Democracy: Simon prides himself on being open-minded. He listens to staff and involves them in decision-making. But if they show initiative, he gets heavy.

    Honest Tyrant: Janice lays down the law and heaven help those who cross her. But at least she's honest - and looks after her people.

    The Invisible Manager: Richard makes much of "empowering" his staff- in reality he leaves them to sink or swim. When vital decisions are to be made, Richard takes refuge in the toilet!
