Vertical Development: The Key to Elevating Your Leadership

Being a positive influence to those in our sphere of influence is difficult in the best of times. But, we are facing unprecedented change, pressure, uncertainty, and complexity, which is making it substantially more difficult to be an effective leader. If we want to be a positive influence to those we lead, we need to elevate our capacity to navigate change, pressure, uncertainty, and complexity. This requires a focus on an underused form of development: vertical development (which differs from the typical horizontal development). In this session, you will learn what vertical development is, why it is so critical for your current and future success, and how to vertically develop to elevate your leadership.
