skillsoft (1)You have a track record of success. You’ve been told you have leadership potential. You know you can make a larger impact. You are poised to take the leap. How do you prepare yourself for the critical transition to a leadership role?

You should act like a leader before you try to think like one says Herminia Ibarra. Ibarra is the presenter in our next Skillsoft live event –

Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader
June 8, 2016, 9-10 am
Salem Bldg. 6, Rm. 218B

Ibarra is a professor of leadership at INSEAD, an international graduate0x600 (2) business school. Prior to joining INSEAD, she served on the Harvard Business School faculty for 13 years.

Ibarra studies how successful professionals who have built their career on technical expertise transition to leadership roles. She has learned that aspiring leaders must make more strategic contributions, adapt and even reinvent themselves to become successful leaders.

In her presentation, Ibarra will turn the usual “think first then act” philosophy on its head. You will learn –

  • How to redefine your job in order to make more strategic contributions
  • Diversify your network so that you connect to, and learn from, a bigger range of stakeholders
  • Become more playful with your self-concept, allowing your familiar, and possibly outdated, style to evolve
