Future Now Leadership Series

Leveraging Function Leaders as a Critical Lever for  Accelerated Growth

Date: Wednesday, June 14, 2023 
Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm CDT
Event Type: Complimentary Webinar

Now is perhaps the single greatest leadership development opportunity in our lifetimes. Confronted by waves of new and increasingly complex leadership demands, your executives, and in particular, your function leaders, must have the ability to lead through unprecedented times. Called the “linchpin” of organizations, function leaders have arguably the greatest impact on your business performance.

A future of disruptions and uncertainty places a premium on organizational capabilities to rapidly learn, pivot, and execute with agility. Function leaders are the “critical middle” who exercise these capabilities, serving as executors and reshapers of strategy in real time, vital talent developers, change leaders, internal influencers, and results drivers. As your function leaders succeed, so too does your organization. Their development represents your best investment.

  • Why the value and influence of function leaders has never been greater
  • The five roles most critical to function leader success
  • The real value and impact of function leader development
