Panel Discussion - The Future of Leadership Development
Depending on whom you talk to, emotional intelligence is either the most important thing for leaders to have or the most over-hyped. In a constantly evolving environment where resources are limited, where should leaders focus their attention: hard or soft skills? Five, 10 or even 15 years from now, which will deliver the greatest return for your investment? In this session, a panel of learning executives will debate the future of leadership skills and where to target their learning to deliver the greatest bottom-line impact.
