Rethinking Leadership: Driving Performance in a Smaller, Tougher World
Presented by Jennifer Eggers, Founder of Leadershift Authentic Insights and former head of Leadership Development and Learning for Bank of America's Merchant Services Business & head of Organization Development & Change Management at Coca Cola

Date: October 22, 2012
Time: 5:30 - 8:00 p.m.
Place: HBS, Aldrich 112

Two pervasive issues facing business today require leaders at all levels to think differently about leadership: the need to do more with less and the need to work across cultures. 

These needs frequently present challenges that require leaders to ‘get it right the first time’ and remove the luxury of trial and error.

To maintain their edge in today's market, leaders must be exceedingly competent at leading lasting and sustainable change, driving performance through others, maximizing results of a global workforce and managing talent in ways they never imagined before.  

The cost of failed change, inefficient organization structures and stagnating C players is just too high when every dollar counts. Missing an opportunity because leaders or their teams aren’t aligned simply isn’t acceptable with the pace of business and technology.

Join Jennifer Eggers, former head of Leadership Development and Learning for Bank of America's Card, Government and Merchant Services Business and the head of Organization Development and Change Management at Coca Cola Enterprises and now President & Founder of LeaderShift Authentic Insights, Inc. for an interactive discussion about how leaders at all levels need to rethink leadership to thrive in today's rapidly shrinking world and more challenging economy. This session will challenge your thinking and provide pragmatic tools you can use immediately to do more with less and align diverse stakeholders more effectively.


As a result of attending this session, you will:

  • Learn and practice how to think differently about leadership to do more with less while engaging multi-cultural stakeholders
  • Get the framework for the leader's new role: 3 key priorities that will determine success in today's market
  • Receive three tools (one for each key priority) that you will be able to apply immediately to your role as a leader at any level
