Particularly during turbulent times, effective leaders need to possess strong learning agility in order to be successful. Agile leaders are able to draw insightful lessons from new and even challenging experiences that can serve them in future undertakings.

Join us for our July Book Discussion web cast, featuring J. Evelyn Orr, Intellectual Property Development Consultant at Korn/Ferry International, as she discusses her book, Becoming an Agile Leader: Learning From Your Experiences. In this web cast, Evelyn will explore two key pillars of exceptional leadership: undergoing the right experiences to help you grow as a leader, and harnessing the power of those experiences to enhance Learning Agility.

Frank Anderson, Senior Fellow, Human Capital at The Conference Board, will moderate this web cast, which will be relevant for:

  • Any individual looking to grow in order to meet career goals;
  • Any business leader seeking Learning Agility development tools for their own organization; or
  • Coaches and mentors who are helping others develop their leadership skills.

Audience: Human Capital professionals charged with talent management, leadership development, strategic human resources, strategic workforce planning, workforce readiness, diversity & inclusion, employee engagement or human capital analytics would benefit from this webcast.
