Mastering Leading and Managing Simultaneously
Please join us for an inspiring and insightful Leadership Conversation with Alan Berson (WH’75; WG’78) to discover how to simultaneously think like a leader and perform as a manager.
Why Attend? A Managing Director at Goldman Sachs said it best: "I received my last 3 promotions, including to Managing Director, by carefully following Alan's advice!"
What Will You Learn? Management and Leadership are not just totally different jobs, rather they are competing and different mindsets; ones that must be interwoven and honed based on your inner leadership persona (your brand), your current/potential future role in your organization and the organization culture. Learn how to combine the Art of Leadership with the Science of Management to perform at your best…and perhaps finally get the promotion or job you have always wanted.
