“Leadership in a Startup: Managing the Transition from Entrepreneur to Founder-Leader”

Before launching their own startups, many entrepreneurs have been highly effective individual contributors or managers in established organizations.  Yet the role of a Founder-Leader has a wholly different purpose – and what has made an entrepreneur successful in the past does not necessarily make for a successful future as a leader.

Designed for startup CEOs and Founders, this interactive workshop incorporates how to evaluate your leadership style and identify what you want to change; how we actually learn to become better leaders; the centrality of emotional intelligence in leadership; and the resources and tools for your development as a leader.

The focus is on thinking and doing.  This is about the very hard work and significant responsibility of leading others – and doing it well in the dynamic environment of an innovative, loosely structured, rapidly changing start-up.

For new leaders, or those with limited experience, the session will provide a tangible framework for approaching your unfamiliar challenges.  For experienced leaders, the discussion is an opportunity to examine your familiar patterns, think about leadership from a fresh perspective – and try an approach that is different and new.
