We’ll discuss the challenges of getting hired as a leader – and how to stand out as a job candidate. Today’s society needs strong leaders. Ones who can lead through times of crisis and change. So we’ll also speak about leveling up as a leader more generally.

  • How can I grow as a leader?
  • How should we deliver bad news?
  • How do we address layoffs and other challenges?
  • What about global disasters?

There is someone who I would consider to be a top expert in this area, and we are so lucky to have him today.
