DDI LeaderCon 2019

Minutes, Days, Months: Create Meaningful Leadership Journeys in the Era of Busyness

Wednesday, October 16 | 12:15 PM - 1:15 PM

In today's always-on world, being "busy" has become a badge of honor. But busyness doesn't equal effectiveness, as leaders feel pressure to prioritize urgent tasks over important goals.

In our closing session, John Verdone, DDI’s Manager of Global Facilitation Excellence, will spark inspiration with a strategic framework that will help you think about meaningful leadership journeys that make the most of time.

This framework is focused on the number 480, which represents leadership challenges across three timeframes:

  • 480 minutes in an 8-hour workday: These minute-by-minute interactions are the small, but significant, moments when leaders demonstrate powerful leadership behaviors
  • 480 workdays in a 2-year business cycle: This time frame is about preparing leaders to drive the business and cultural challenges within a typical 2-year business cycle, such as driving innovation, leading change, or improving diversity and inclusion
  • 480 months in a 40-year career: This time frame is about identifying and supporting leaders as they manage significant transitions in their leadership careers, whether making the first jump to leadership, ascending to mid-level leadership, or entering the executive suite

You will leave invigorated and ready to spark purposeful leadership careers that deliver both exceptional business results and deep personal satisfaction.

This session has been certified by HRCI and SHRM for 1.0 CEU.
