THE END OF LEADERSHIP AS WE KNOW IT
If the leader is not in charge, not the central authority, not “the decider”, then how do things get done? The first thing to understand is that leadership is no longer a function of your title or where you sit in the organization. It’s a function of your capacity to get things done with other people—to animate and energize people, to unleash and amplify their impact.
In this presentation, Polly shows what this actually looks like in practice at bold and successful organizations that have transformed their leadership mindset and reaped the rewards. She offers fresh and practical approaches using vivid storytelling that will put you on a path to: “leader-proof” your organization with a new set of principles and practices (from peer review to term limits to coaching and curriculum); design a compelling architecture of contribution to engage the hearts, minds and guts of everybody across the organization; foment a productive uprising of organizational activists to lead change; and retrofit yourself. You’ll walk away understanding the most important things you need to do to rethink how leadership works in your organization.
