Most exceptional leaders intentionally engage in habits and even hobbies that improve creativity and innovation, boost personal productivity, build empathy and understanding, increase personal credibility, and positively impact the morale and enthusiasm of others. We’ll explore the habits of leaders such as Bill Gates, Padmasree Warrior, Eric Yuan, Sheryl Sandberg and other top leaders, and how these habits support inspirational and visionary leadership.

This interactive session will help you strategize about the habits that support your own professional goals:

  • Explore habits of leaders that support creativity, innovation, and diverse perspectives
  • Examine habits of leaders that build empathy and emotional intelligence
  • Evaluate habits of leaders that allow leaders to build morale and engage others
