As the pace of commoditization accelerates and the emergence of technological disruption threatens our existing business models, we must transform our teams at a faster rate than the external environment is changing. This engaging, case-study rich session will unlock the keys to accelerating growth in your team and your organization. Peter will encourage you to have vision and create a setting for your team to thrive because organizations don’t transform – leaders do.
