Business Meeting

Team Building

This Event is Sponsored by The Harvard Business School Alumni Association of Southern California

We live in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world and the pressures on our leadership skills are immense and escalating.

Effective leaders outperform ineffective leaders EVERY time. While that sounds obvious, we all struggle with maximizing our impact and competition is fierce.

Some leaders know they are leaving money on the table and others are completely unaware that their leadership behaviors are slowing their team down.

Even if you are achieving double digit growth, unless you have optimized your leadership development, you are not achieving what could be triple or quadruple digit growth.  An organization cannot outperform the collective effectiveness of its leadership, yet so many leaders focus exclusively on optimizing their strategy and tactics vs. proactively working toward improving their leadership behaviors.

Leadership effectiveness is a primary contributor to business performance. The Leadership Circle Profile (LCP) is the leading leadership development tool that helps leaders gain actionable insights to build their leadership capacity and develop high performance teams.

JOIN HBSASC for a virtual interactive session to introduce you to The Leadership Circle Profile with your personalized self-assessment results.

We will have an interactive discussion about today’s leadership challenges and what we can do about them. We will include small group break-out sessions that will help you devise a plan to get to the next level of leadership performance, whether you are already a CEO, a C-Level executive, business owner, entrepreneur, or an emerging leader.
