Great Leadership Create Great Companies

Great Leadership Create Great Companies

This On-Demand event was originally presented on October 7, 2015 (60 min)


The key to making extraordinary things happen in organizations is great leadership. It contributes more to positive outcomes than any other single factor. Great products, great strategy, and great people are absolutely critical, but with poor leadership, they produce only a third to a half of their potential. It takes great leadership to create great workplaces that create great results. If you want better results in your marketplace, you have to ensure that you are fostering great leadership within your organization.  

In this webinar, leadership expert, author, and researcher Jim Kouzes will present evidence that leadership makes a significant and meaningful difference in people’s engagement at work and in the performance of their organizations. In analyzing responses from over two million people around the world, Jim and coauthor Barry Posner have found that leaders who more frequently exhibit The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® have employees who are more committed, proud, motivated, loyal, and productive than those whose leaders exhibit these practices less frequently. Engagement scores are 25-50% higher among the groups with exemplary leaders. These workplaces also have higher performance than those with leaders who engage less frequently in these practices. Jim will explore how great leadership creates great workplaces through the application of The Five Practices®. He’ll also offer concrete advice on what you can do to put each of the practices to use immediately to improve engagement and performance.

This webinar is based on the Leadership Practices Inventory, an assessment that helps participants understand how to develop effective leadership skills, learn The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®, and discover how to apply these practices to organizational challenges.
