SYNOPSIS: Join us as Lolly Daskal highlights her newest bestseller “The Leadership Gap”. After decades of advising and inspiring some of the most eminent chief executives in the world, Lolly has uncovered a startling pattern: within each leader are powerful abilities that are also hidden impediments to greatness. She’s witnessed many highly-driven, overachieving leaders rise to prominence fueled by well-honed skill sets, only to falter when the shadow sides of the same skills emerge. Now Daskal reveals her proven system, which leaders at any level can apply to dramatically improve their results.
