A guide for modern leaders

  • A new leadership model
  • Embrace diversity so everyone reaches their leadership potential
  • Inspiration for all aspiring leaders

The traditional alpha leadership model is at odds with the collaborative, diverse and happy culture that we now know makes organisations successful. Why then, do so many of us feel we still have to be more “alpha” in order to realise our leadership dreams?

It is time to redefine alpha leadership. Great leaders are not defined by specific personality traits or traditional labels. Today, Richard Reeves argues, we need to embrace individuality. Great organisations encourage diversity in their leaders and their people.

At this event we explore leadership credentials for modern times. Discover how critical it is for companies to champion diversity of all kinds across gender, race, social class and personality. There is more than one way to lead.
