The best way to unleash an organization’s power is to realize the full potential of its individual employees. What if a company did everything in its power to create a culture in which everyone—not just select “high potentials”—could overcome their own internal barriers to change and use errors and vulnerabilities as prime opportunities for personal and company growth?

Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey have found and studied such companies: Deliberately Developmental Organizations (DDOs). Learn about the design principles, concrete practices, and underlying science at the heart of three DDOs that embody this breakthrough approach to foster business success through accelerating the individual and collective capabilities of people at work.


Who should attend: Organizational leaders interested in unleashing their employees' potential and improving performance by creating a culture that enhances personal growth and development
