About the event

Do you want to inspire others? Start by understanding how to inspire yourself. When you understand your strengths and challenges, you can better predict how you’ll respond to situations—allowing you to take smarter action.

Great leaders are aware of their capabilities and their blind spots, and they continuously develop themselves to maximize the former and minimize the latter. The first step is to understand how you naturally lead. That insight will allow you to be conscientious about the team you lead, and how to relate to and inspire them individually.

One of the best ways to build self-awareness is by gathering and analysing data! A 360 assessment, a workplace behavioural assessment, a cognitive assessment, and many other types of objective scientific data can help you understand what drives and motivates you at work, how this impacts others, as well as how that influences how you lead.
