    Advances in neuroscience and other research evidence have turned the world of leadership and leadership development on its ear and has explained why most leadership development efforts are not effective. This presentation will provide an up-to-the-date review of what we know about “our brains on leadership” and how talent management professionals can leverage and apply this evidence-based knowledge to build leaders now and for the future. . . and to improve their own ability to lead.


    1. Understand why past leadership development efforts have not been effective – the “5 Epic Fails of Leadership Development”

    2. Understand what neuroscience and other fields of research have taught us about adult learning, high-impact leadership development and effective leadership (in practical and down to earth terms)

    3. Learn the 7 components of a retooled formula for leadership development, called Strategy-Driven Leadership Development, which capitalizes on current evidence-based practices and is driven from strategy.
