ADAM BRYANT: AUTHOR AND “CORNER OFFICE” COLUMNIST AT THE NEW YORK TIMES
“How do you lead?” asks veteran journalist Adam Bryant, cutting through the clichés and canned responses that often populate leadership conversations. He asked the CEOs of Disney, LinkedIn, Dreamworks, and Ford, and distilled their responses into five essential qualities that characterize transformative leaders, and build a corporate culture of innovation.
MAUREEN CHIQUET: FORMER GLOBAL CEO OF CHANEL AND PRESIDENT OF BANANA REPUBLIC
Empathy and communication are qualities that have historically been relegated to the female sphere, but Maureen Chiquet used them to steer global brands through a decade of disruption. Now she speaks on the value of having women in top leadership positions, and what we can all learn from bringing compassion, collaboration and understanding into the workplace. Her book, Beyond the Label has gathered several high-profile features and reviews.
RITU BHASIN: LEADERSHIP AND INCLUSION CONSULTANT, BHASIN CONSULTING INC.
Authenticity is everything. When we feel like we can be as close to our authentic selves as possible at work, we’re more productive, engaged, satisfied. In other words, our very best work comes from our very best selves. Ritu Bhasin is an expert in creating workplace environments in which authenticity thrives and transformative leaders emerge. Her book, The Authenticity Principle, is out October 5th.
MISHA GLOUBERMAN: NEGOTIATION EXPERT | THE CHAIRS ARE WHERE THE PEOPLE GO
Misha Glouberman’s book, The Chairs Are Where the People Go, was named one of the best of the year by The New Yorker. He’s a seasoned negotiator and communications expert who takes the principles of mutual gain and better listening and uses them to help people solve every kind of problem. “Listening means actually listening and trying to learn new stuff. Quietly preparing your rebuttal is not listening.”
ANTHONY TJAN: AUTHOR OF GOOD PEOPLE | CEO & MANAGING PARTNER OF THE CUE BALL GROUP
“Real goodness and real leadership is when you help others become a fuller version of who they are—another way of putting it: the greatest leaders I’ve met aren’t trying to produce followers, they’re leaders trying to produce other leaders.” Anthony Tjan is an entrepreneur and bestselling author who, in talks, proves again and again that a company is only as good as its people.
