About a year ago, I had the opportunity to speak to 120 leaders at the U.S. division of a European-based company. The leaders were embarking on the next phase of a learning journey that they had begun the past summer. My job was to kickoff the new phase and to get them excited about the upcoming learning.
Third on the day’s agenda, I was comfortably seated in the front of the room, waiting for my time to speak. The company’s General Manager, who is responsible for all U.S. business, started the day by reviewing current performance, explaining future opportunities, and sharing his commitment to the leadership development efforts.
He did an excellent job. I felt confident that based on his set-up, I would be able to deliver on my role.
