Join us for an evening with Rise of the DEO: Leadership by Design book authors Maria Giudice and Christopher Ireland, at Carbon Five in San Francisco on Thursday, November 14 at 6:30pm.
The majority of companies navigate a space where competitors appear overnight, customers demand innovations monthly, and business plans rarely last a full year. This environment of constant change will only accelerate in the future, and traditional business leaders are ill equipped to deal with it.
Leaders who understand the transformative power of design can command in times of change. We call these leaders DEOs - Design Executive Officers - and they are our new heros.
Rise of the DEO explores the intersection of creativity and business acumen, explaining how and why this unlikely coupling produces leaders most capable of solving our increasingly complex business problems.
Doors open at 6:30pm; talk at 7pm with a Q&A, and book signing to follow. Buy a book on Amazon and bring it with you, or purchase your copy at the event. Carbon Five is located at: 585 Howard St. 2nd Floor (at 2nd St) in San Francisco.
About the Book
Rise of the DEO: Leadership by Design, identifies and explores the qualities of a new breed of leaders. The book lays out–graphically and through example–how DEOs run their companies and why this approach makes sense today. We help readers identify skills in themselves and their colleagues, and we guide them in using these skills to build, revive, or reinvent the next generation of great companies and organizations.
