Conventional approaches to growing leadership don't work very well, according to nearly everybody. Into this gap comes Herminia Ibarra with her first hand experiences at INSEAD, combined with the insight and analysis that have become her trademark. Calling in to the show live from France, Herminia shares with us the surprising inversion she discovered, and a new, more effective way to grow ourselves -- and others -- as senior leaders.
Anyone making the transition from a line manager to a cross functional or strategic leader position, should listen (and look for her forthcoming book, Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader, coming from Harvard Business Review Press on 10-Feb-2015).
Herminia Ibarra is the Cora Chaired Professor of Leadership and Learning and Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD. Prior to joining INSEAD she served on the Harvard Business School faculty for thirteen years. She is Vice-Chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Women's Empowerment and Chairs the Visiting Committee of the Harvard Business School. Thinkers50 ranked Ibarra #9 among the most influential business gurus in the world.
