New York: SUPERBOSSES – A NYC Chapter Event

March 22, 2016 at The Ayers Group in New York.

tracking.php?code=mwQjFKaYPMQbntj4937mTf

REGISTRATION IS MANDATORY TO ATTEND THIS EVENT. Click the “Tickets Available” link for more information and online registration.

DESCRIPTION
What do football coach Bill Walsh, restaurateur Alice Waters, television executive Lorne Michaels, technol­ogy CEO Larry Ellison, and fashion pioneer Ralph Lauren have in common? On the surface, not much, other than consistent success in their fields. But below the surface, they share a common approach to finding, nurturing, leading, and even letting go of great people. The way they deal with talent makes them not merely success stories, not merely organization builders, but what bestselling author Sydney Finkelstein calls superbosses. They’ve all transformed entire industries. After ten years of research and more than 200 interviews, Finkelstein has concluded that superbosses exist in nearly every industry, from the glamorous to the mundane. While superbosses differ in their personal styles, they all focus on identifying promising newcomers, inspiring their best work, and launching them into highly successful careers—while also expanding their own networks and building stronger companies. By sharing the fascinating stories of superbosses and their protégés, Finkelstein explores a phenomenon that never had a name before. And he shows how each of us can emulate the best tactics of superbosses to create our own powerful networks of extraordinary talent. Information useful to us as leaders, as CEOs, and as board members.

SCHEDULE:
6:00 – 6:30 pm – Mingling Reception
6:30 – 7:30 pm – Presentation & Discussion
