Event Details

The key to making extraordinary things happen in organizations is great leadership!

It contributes more to positive outcomes than any other single factor. Great products, great strategy, great people are absolutely critical, but with poor leadership they produce only a third to a half of their potential. It takes great leadership to create great workplaces that create great results. 

Join ILA and leadership co-author and researcher, Jim Kouzes,Thursday, September 19th to learn how leadership makes a significant and meaningful difference in people’s engagement at work and in the performance of their organizations.

At this FREE event, participants will learn how to:

  • Successfully implement positive change in an organization 
  • Sustain higher levels of employee engagement
  • Attract, develop and capitalize on key talent
  • Stimulate innovation and creative new ways of thinking
  • Increase organizational courage and accountability, equipping more people to better step up to tougher conversations and decisions

In analyzing responses from nearly two million people around the world Jim Kouzes, co-author of The Leadership Challenge®, have found that those leaders who more frequently exhibit The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® have employees who are more committed, proud, motivated, loyal, and productive than those whose leaders exhibit these practices less frequently. Overall engagement scores are 25 to 50 percent higher among the groups with leaders who exhibit exemplary leadership. These workplaces also have better bottom lines than those led by those who engage less frequently in these practices.

All attendees will receive a limited edition of Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner's first original ebook—Great Leadership Creates Great Workplaces!
