Mastering the Intangibles of Great Leadership

This On-Demand event was originally presented on September 2, 2015 (60 min)


Great leaders focus more on developing the intangibles of leadership than on the tangible attributes found in most lists of competencies or in most leadership books.

This hour-long webinar presents the results of thousands of top-performing leaders articulating their best practices for what makes someone a transformational leader. These best practices focus primarily on factors like self-directed learning, systematic individual and group reflection, influencing others, confidence, personal authenticity, building trust, and living with passion and commitment. Top performers have the ability to utilize these intangibles under the pressures of limited resources, time pressures, and considerable uncertainty.

Join experts William Seidman and Richard Grbavac as they present practical, proven methodologies based on the newest neuroscience of learning that have successfully developed these leadership intangibles in thousands of leadership candidates. As a result of this webinar, participants will know both the intangibles of greatness in a leader and excellent methodologies for developing their own leadership capabilities and the leadership of their organization.
