Presented by Kia Young

During this THRIVE Virtual breakout session targeted toward emerging leaders, Young will share the four keys to making deep, intentional, connections that ensure you do more than stand out. Legacy branding gives you a framework of what to share with others to solidify lasting impact and interest that gets you closer to your goal—whether that be new friendships, collaborations, clients, or business opportunities. Walk away with a universal yet customizable framework that will allow you to confidently make connections by having conversations that deeply resonate and stick.

Presented by Pamela J. Green, executive coach

Today’s leaders must have not only the talent, skills, and abilities to lead at executive levels, but also the mindset to manage, lead, and influence change. During this THRIVE Virtual breakout session, Pamela J. Green, executive coach and consultant, will touch on the industry guidance you all are asking for:

  • The definition of strategic thinking, and how to expand on this mindset
  • How to recognize and employ strategic thinking tactics
  • How to move from complicated to complex leadership

Green will leave you with direction on high-performance leadership behaviors that result in leaders who can quickly adapt to new business demands, remain nimble and innovative, and are able to realize your organization’s competitive advantage.

Bonus takeaway: Green will give away 30 copies of her book, Think Like an Executive Brand, during the presentation to session participants.
