2:00 – 3:05 PM | Leadership Huddle
Leadership is hard.
60% of leaders report they feel depleted at the end of the day.
We have expended our surge capacity, and many of us are experiencing symptoms of burnout.
Leading through the back-to-office and hybrid transition is the next big initiative. Leaders must focus on each individual employee, seeking to understand like never before, new anxieties and personal complexities. How can leaders embrace this individualized leadership and demonstrate the required empathy, while maintaining their own energy?
This Leadership Huddle brings together an esteemed group of Experts to tackle this challenge with a focus on how to lead in this moment of time.

Moments of disruption are never without precedent.

We are living in a series of repetitive cycles, known as resets, that readjust the operating system of our very world.
In this virtual presentation, Leonard can help you shift your perspective on what we’re going through and understand that the success stories in the coming years will be tied to leaders who master these cycles and are prepared to bounce back.
