Have you ever wondered “Why are we doing this?”, or “Is there a better way to do this”?
In a special presentation based on his forthcoming book, that is both brutally honest and deeply inspiring, Dr. Secretan explores how and why leaders are attracted to, and seduced by, trendy ideas, and the process by which these ideas then become mainstream. He calls the originators of these trends, “bellwethers”. He identifies eight examples of counterproductive business practices, among them, fear-based management, motivation, separateness and silos, employee engagement surveys, performance appraisals, salary grades and pay scales, mission, vision, and values statements, and the use of war as a metaphor for business. In each case, he proposes a fresh and inspiring alternative that could lead to transformation and an inspiring culture.
This is likely to be one of the most profound and uplifting speeches on leadership you will ever get to experience.
