Leadership Live from Harvard Square
For Leaders Excellence members residing outside of the Boston area or overseas, you are invited to join our “Leadership Live from Harvard Square” sessions via video conferencing.
To benefit from the Leaders Excellence network, you may participate in our “Leadership Live from Harvard Square” sessions via video conferencing. These sessions are facilitated by a leadership expert, who will set the scene for discussion on each month’s topic. Our main leadership expert and coach is William (Bill) Shea, who holds an MBA from Harvard and is the former director of corporate relations and market development for Harvard Business School. Additions, we are inviting top professors from renowned universities such as UCLA, Darden, Cornell, and Harvard to these sessions several times a year to lecture on essential and trending topics.
The purpose is to discuss leadership within each month’s topic but, more importantly, to network with fellow members. We don’t have a preset meeting agenda, nor will we use PowerPoints or other visuals. We want to learn which areas within the topic are most important and relevant to you, our members, to have some powerful discussions.
If you have a personal leadership issue and/or challenge within the topic’s framework that you want offered for discussion during the meeting agenda, please let us know before the session. The discussion leader will comment on the structure and focus of each question and open it for discussion. We may not be able to address every question, but we will try to engage discussions on as many issues as possible.
This is your opportunity to make valuable, real-time video conferenced connections with other Leaders Excellence members residing in different parts of the world.
