Session Description
Effective leaders can do two things well. They can empower people in a way that will make people take ownership for their role and responsibility for their actions. Leaders also know what they need to do to get people to respond to them. What do successful organizations do to enable people to take ownership? How do leaders move from managing to leading so that people will follow? This session will not only give an insight into what successful organizations do, but will give tips on how to achieve it.
