There is no doubt learning styles are changing. With new generations entering the management pool, how can organizations better enable evolution and development for high-performing managers and executives? Through agile, intelligent and contemporary learning techniques targeted for the executive mindset, we can become — according to James Burns — transformational leaders.

Michael Brainard’s presentation — New Thinking in Executive Development — presents the emerging paradigm in training and development for business leaders. With 20 years of experience, his methodology transcends the traditional classroom by integrating contemporary learning techniques targeted for the executive mindset. Participants will leave with new insights leading to behavioral change and an impact on ROI, while discovering web-based solutions for ongoing education
Brainard frames traditional models and theories before delving into the differences and responsibilities between leadership and management, Kouzes and Posner’s credibility paradigm, good-to-great leadership, what makes a level 5 leader, and the importance of emotional intelligence.

The group will discuss interpersonal and organizational skills, while learning to represent industry acumen and presence. By utilizing deeper self-awareness and authenticity-building techniques, they will begin to recognize self-deception as they move up the ranks, gain multiple perspectives on executive leadership, and understand the deep impact of relationships.
