Given the pressing need for highly effective leaders in today’s recovering economy, organizations are wise to seek the most direct way to develop strong leaders.

During this podcast, Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman will discuss their research which proves that having strengths is what differentiates great leaders from their less effective counterparts. They’ll also offer proof that great leaders can indeed be developed and that using a strengths-based development process is the fastest way to move from “good” to “great.”

Join Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman to discover:
  • Why focusing on strengths is far more effective than a preoccupation with fixing weaknesses, which is promoted in most traditional development programs.
  • How building strengths greatly differs from correcting weaknesses.
  • A unique process for developing strengths.
