Leaders have always been expected to achieve results. Over the last thirty years there has been a growing expectation that effective leaders should also demonstrate a level of care and concern for people in order to work collaboratively, effectively coach and develop others, and build employee engagement. Is this a reasonable expectation? How difficult is it to lead with a shared emphasis on both people and results?

Join us for this interactive session as we share surprising results from one of MRG’s most provocative research studies and explore neuroscience insights into the challenging balance between focusing on people and focusing on results.
