By the age of 35, Jeffrey Davidson had been both director at a start-up and president of a multi-million-dollar sales organization. Despite his reading, teaching, and different roles he had filled, he did not consider himself to be a good leader. None of his teams came close to reaching their potential, and due to his frustration, he gave up on management and became a consultant.
Real leadership began when a client asked Jeffrey to build a team of analysts. He started by hiring good people. And keeping an unrelenting focus on learning and improvement. Within 2 years the team was the envy of the organization. Eventually Jeffrey realized he had not taught people how to be a good team, the team had taught Jeffrey how to lead.
Jeffrey took his hard-won knowledge and went back into consulting, rescuing high-impact projects. In every instance there were at least two problems — and one of them was always teamwork. You have probably notices that the world is more connected, complex, chaotic, and faster than ever before. It feels like these forces are trying to rip your business apart. Jeffrey s here to speak about the need for responsive leaders and adaptive teams. More, he is going to lay out the steps it takes for leaders to get teams from mediocre to High-Performance!
