Event Description:  This presentation will focus on your development as a leader and the development of future leaders within your organization. With the aging demographics and current flux of the Houston economy, accelerating personal and professional development for yourself and your organization’s future leaders is critical.

  • Is your organization experiencing the silver tsunami—leaders who will be retiring soon leaving a gap in leadership ability?
  • Do you have potential future leaders who need to accelerate their development to be ready for their new roles?
  • Do you want to increase your own leadership skills in order to advance in your career?

Now is the time to focus on development!!

When you leave this discussion you will have a simple model to fast forward sustainable development. We will also shine the spotlight on the value of assessments in the development process.


  • Identify the 5 readiness traits you (or any potential leader) need to have to become an enterprise leader—and why these traits are critical for making an impact
  • The 8 engagement styles good leaders use to communicate with their people
  • The most effective way to accelerate the development of leadership skills
