Meet author and Potential Project founder, Rasmus Hougaard, to learn the surprising research showing what makes for good leadership in the 21st century. Rasmus Hougaard will share the fascinating research behind "The Mind of the Leader" and lead a Q&A session for guests.
Based on Potential Project's extensive research of more than 35,000 leaders and interviews with 250 C-level executives, "The Mind of the Leader" concludes that organisations and leaders aren't meeting employees' basic human needs of finding meaning, purpose, connection, and genuine happiness in their work. 77% of leaders think they do a good job at engaging their people. 88% of employees disagree. And 65% of employees would forego a pay raise to see their leaders fired. This is despite more than $46 billion spent annually on leadership development.
About "The Mind of the Leader"
More than a description of the problem, "The Mind of the Leader" offers a radical, yet practical solution. To solve the leadership crisis, organisations need to put people at the centre of their strategy. They need to develop managers and executives who understand that to lead others, they must first successfully lead themselves, by leveraging three core mental qualities: mindfulness, selflessness and compassion.
With real world inspirational examples from leading organisations such as Marriott, Accenture, McKinsey & Company, LinkedIn, and many more, "The Mind of the Leader" shows how a new kind of leadership turns conventional leadership thinking upside down.
