Leadership Is Half The Story

Time: 7:30 am – 9:30 am

Venue: The National Club, 303 Bay Street, Toronto ON Canada + webcast

Event overview:

Can you imagine a choreographer training only one dancer to lead while his or her partner sits in the lobby staring at the wall? Unthinkable? Yet this happens all the time within businesses and organizations. Half the partnership is missing!

There is a notion that everyone should be a leader all the time and, if leadership is so game changing, we must need more of it from everyone, all the time. In fact, research shows that it takes both roles – leadership AND followership – to get the best results. They are equally valuable. Leadership is one half of a partnership.

Leadership is Half the Story is a fresh look at leadership, followership, and partnerships. It introduces the first model to seamlessly integrate these ideas so that nobody is left sitting in the lobby. The speakers offer a host of new ideas and practical advice that is research-backed and field-tested, based on their brand new book: Leadership is Half the Story: A Fresh Look at Followership, Leadership and Collaboration (University of Toronto Press, Rotman School of Business Imprint, March 2015). It is a category-busting book that “practically glows with energy and vision,“ according to reviewer Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling author and top ranked executive coach.
