10:00 - 11:00am  Leading from Within - The Power of Empathetic Management, presented by Sophie Wade

Leadership is in the midst of a major makeover. The identity of an organization is shifting away from the CEO with more emphasis on mission, purpose and culture. Elements of control are being willingly transferred from management to employees to increase engagement and productivity. Greater technology-driven transparency is resulting in a flattening of the corporate hierarchy and more peer-based relationships. Inclusive and adaptable mindsets are prevailing to manage accelerated marketplace changes. Empathetic individualized attention is building more productive, trust-based connections and interactions. The enterprise environment is evolving and in order to succeed within it leaders’ styles are changing too. 

In this session you will learn:

  • Why and how to develop more empathetic leadership and management styles, empowering and engaging your internal and external workforce;

  • Key reasons and steps for articulating and communicating your mission and culture effectively throughout your business ecosystem;

  • How to build stronger, reciprocal relationships to motivate and manage increasingly diverse and distributed workers, partners, and vendors.
