Leadership Live from Harvard Square
Members of Leaders Excellence are invited to join 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. With his MBA from Harvard Business School and longtime work at HBS in both online learning and executive education, makes him an authority on leadership and understanding of business challenges. Additions, we are inviting top professors from renowned universities such as Stanford 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.
This is also your opportunity to make valuable, real-time video conferenced connections with other Leaders Excellence members residing in different parts of the world.
Top speakers in 2022 included: Ashley Whillans, professor at Harvard Business School on Time Smart; Raj Sisodia, professor at Babson College and co-chairman at Conscious Capitalism on Awakening Conscious Leadership; Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez, world champion in project management and Harvard author on The Project Economy; Mohan Subramaniam, professor at IMD Business School on The Future of Competitive Strategy; Jeffrey Pfeffer, professor at Stanford University on 7 Rules of Power.
Top speaker in 2023 include Francesca Gino, professor at Harvard Business School on Rebel Talent: Why It Pays to Break the Rules at Work and in Life. We will be announcing more fabulous speakers soon.
