The multi-billion dollar leadership development industry has failed, with workplaces characterized by low engagement, distrust of leaders, low levels of job satisfaction, and high rates of leadership failure. Instead of chasing inspiration and telling nice, often untrue, and invariably rare tales, companies need to understand the qualities that make people effective and how to develop them.

Join Jeffrey Pfeffer, Professor of Organizational Behavior at Stanford University, as he discusses why this is the case and, more importantly, why the attributes we claim to want in leaders are almost the exact opposite of what we hire for and promote.

You will learn:
  • How to make leadership development more effective
  • Which skills we should be imparting in leaders 
  • Why we need to give up on inspiration and nice stories
