How much time do you spend “managing around” some of your leaders? You know the ones: they deliver great business results, but have some quirks, habits, or behaviors that make you pull your hair out. They yell, belittle others, grab power, and spread anger and fear around your company. At the end of the day, their positive results are offset by the damage their “de-railers” do to the organization.


Join Bob Grace and Rik Nemanick, principals of The Leadership Effect, as they discuss how to identify and manage leadership de-railers. Rik and Bob will share experience from helping organizations like Monsanto, Nestlé Purina PetCare, Anheuser-Busch, Edward Jones, and Prudential as they lead the discussion.


Attendance is free, but seating is limited, so please RSVP.
