Good leaders understand that effective management skills are foundational to getting things done, but great leaders? Great leaders know that authentic and powerful connections are key to inspiring trust among staff and colleagues, and ultimately, to achieving desired results.

We're pleased to announce that on the first day of Leading with Power and Authenticity, The WICT Network will convene a panel of esteemed industry leaders to discuss their respective career trajectories, including obstacles they've overcome, pivots they've made, challenges they’ve faced, and lessons learned along the way.

Creating Change Through Human-Centered Leadership

Organizations and leaders around the globe are navigating critical, day-to-day business demands that require more time and attention than ever before. The 2022 BMGI program, and its focus on human-centered leadership, is rooted in key principles of neuroscience and groundbreaking research conducted by the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL). This year’s program will explore the outcomes of that research and share ways you can capitalize on it to meet your team’s growing workplace needs. 
Participants will learn ways to: 
  • Act with greater agility and resilience and address issues with openness and respect. 
  • Transform performance management with everyday conversations that matter. 
  • Breakdown silos and communication barriers.
  • Develop an understanding of key priorities for the next generation of leaders entering the workforce. 
As a Betsy Magness Leadership Institute (BMLI) graduate, we invite you to register today for the 2022 BMGI program to expand your leadership insights and strategic vision.
