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.

An inconvenient truth about leadership is that you may be living in a bubble without realizing it. This isolation is not intentional; it is a byproduct of the demands of the job. With time being the scarcest resource, leaders rely on their inner circle to filter and prioritize business needs that require their attention. When leaders surround themselves with people who don’t challenge them, there are resulting costs to the organization.

To fix this leadership bubble problem, leaders need to surround themselves with the right people to stay grounded, get 360-degree information required to make decisions, and take actions that result in lasting change. This program will discuss the seven people that are vital to every leader’s success:

  • Trusted Advisor
  • Coach
  • Sage
  • Minority voices
  • Confidant
  • Goliath
  • Balcony friend
