So what’s required of the ultimate leader, the one whose role it is to lead teams whose members are themselves leaders? While managers cannot make a leadership team great; they can put in place conditions that increase the chances that it will become great. Timely, practical and extraordinarily relevant, this session is a vital resource for any chief executive seeking an alternative lens through which to examine the workings of senior leadership teams.
