This is part of the Institute for Management Studies (IMS) Leadership Conversations.

These 60-minute IMS live virtual programs provide a quick dive into key topics that are critical to organizations during a time of disruptive change. Packed with actionable learning strategies, participants will experience an interactive virtual program with an IMS thought leader and receive post-session support through micro-learning lessons and a discussion board.

When you make the transition from a frontline role to a leadership role, you need to make a major shift in how you think about work. Now you are no longer responsible for your own projects and career but also on how to equip and lead others. Even if you have built the “Ferrari” of teams! They’re talented and driven and all the pieces seem to be in place. Still… you can’t figure out why motivating and leading all of these talented people is such a challenge.

In this program, you’ll discover the few things that all talented, creative people need from their leader (they’re not what you think!) and how to deliver them consistently. The old adage that leading creative people is like herding cats is wrong. It is more like herding tigers.
