Session Description
Often when we think of leaders, we think about people in senior roles in our organizations. These leaders typically make up a tiny fraction of an organization. In the remaining majority of the organization, there are countless unnamed leaders. These are people who are able to inspire confidence in others to take action. Some may already be known as "emerging talent" and included in talent pipeline and succession planning discussions. Many are unknown. They may not have the title or the formal authority, but they have the ability to influence others. The key to lasting culture change is finding and empowering these diverse, unnamed leaders and enrolling them as changemakers to shape a community and create a groundswell for change. We will discuss how this has been done in enormous companies, and how you can do it too.
