Inclusive leaders intentionally bring out the full potential of their team by empowering and valuing the unique contributions of individual employees. And inclusive work culture is key in harnessing, the innovation and productivity potential of individuals and teams
Most leadership development focuses on a single direction within the organizational hierarchy: downstream to subordinates. While it is important to be a good boss, leadership is much more than that. The best leaders learn to lead well in all directions: upward to their superiors and across among their peers. And all leadership starts with self-leadership. This often overlooked or misunderstood leadership principle is essential to build a thriving and productive organizational culture. This topic is based on Jon's new book, Mission-Critical Leadership: How Smart Managers Lead Well in All Directions, published in April 2021.Learning Objectives:

Negotiation can bring great value, yet women often avoid it. With good reason. They're often penalized for it. In 2001, only 7% of women negotiated their first salary. Labeled aggressive instead of assertive or, worse, the dreaded b-word, they skip the process for fear of retaliation. Are women terrible negotiators? No. In fact, just the opposite. Their trust & empathy skills make them ideal for it. Often they just need to work on the confidence & communication strategies to get what they want—without that dreaded label. Fotini Iconomopoulos shares her negotiation war stories & how she overcame gender & age discrimination to go on to be the expert that Fortune 50 executives seek her out. You'll leave with confidence & tips to tackle your next negotiation with ease.Learning Objectives:

The journey to the C-Suite is a winding path up a mountain, with roadblocks, switchbacks and avalanches along the way (as well as the occasional gondola that zips you quickly to dizzying heights).

The session is aimed at an early to mid-career audience aspiring to a C-Suite role.
