About the session: Leadership and self-awareness

What makes us successful in our roles? When we ask leaders this question, we get a variety of answers, ranging from talent and skills to passion, to purpose, to discipline and rigor. Some would add luck to the mix. What do you think? And how do you know?

This interactive session is an opportunity for you to sharpen your lenses. We invite you to come with us on the balcony and reflect on what you see. We also share with you some of the latest and most amazing scientific insights about leadership.
