Heart of a Leader: Driving Results with Passion and Empathy; From the Industrial Age to the ever-present Digital Age, the role of leadership has evolved with changing shifts in social, cultural, and economic pressures. What has remained constant is how important leadership is to motivate employees, inspire teams, and deliver optimal results. Why is leadership still as popular today as it was over 50 years ago? In this interactive session, Dr. Hughes discusses what employees want from leaders and how the most effective leaders focus as much on an employee’s wellbeing as they do their organization’s growth and profitability. Finding balance between empathy and discipline can be challenging, but when a leader strikes that harmony, greatness can be achieved. Whether you are a newly promoted leader or an established, experienced executive, this session will help you explore what it takes to lead from the heart while executing goals with clarity and rigor.

This session will:
  • Introduce communication methods that assist leaders facilitate more effective conversations that lead to results
  • Discuss how leaders can clearly and firmly express their position in the face of opposition
  • Present the importance of charisma and how leaders can share impactful stories with others.
  • Demonstrate how leaders can help others engage in critical thinking.
