No matter the business specialism we are engaged in, e.g. finance, operations, marketing, sales, strategy, IT, digital or transformation; leadership matters. Are great leaders born, or can they be developed? What has the most significant impact on a team, and how do we unlock full leadership potential? We all have a hypothesis about what makes a great leader. However, it differs, depending on what motivates, inspires, and drives individuals.
Talita will share her unique perspective as hybrid director of Finance and People and her experiences from climbing the corporate ladder in a complex, global well-known Automotive giant. She will delve into the insights from her research into the Global Leadership Hypothesis; interviewing finance professionals, thought leaders, chairs, board directors and other experts to determine what makes a great leader.
Talita will demonstrate how great leadership is attainable through intention, planned actions and focus in the seven areas of transformation. If you want to thrive as a business professional in challenging, uncertain times, differentiate your career, stand out from the crowd, and unlock your full potential, this is a session not to miss.
