Global Conference 2011

Great leaders can inspire innovation, harness creativity and turn organizations into powerhouses. And we've seen the consequences all too clearly when effective, ethical leadership is lacking. But what really makes a great leader? Are they born or made? What's the difference between a leader and a visionary? What is the ideal relationship between a manager and his team? Why do some individuals have the ability to make tough decisions under pressure when others balk with uncertainty? Our dinner program will explore these issues and more, with a distinguished panel sharing tales from their own storied careers.
