As Columbia University’s W. Warner Burke recently wrote, “Being an effective leader is more complex and difficult than ever before, yet we need effective leadership more than ever before.”

Truer words were never spoken.

Our world is changing at a dizzying pace, bringing considerable challenges for organizations and leaders. How ready is your organization for these changes? Do you know the skills and competencies leaders will need to meet the challenges ahead? Are your succession planning and leadership development efforts effective? How can you make them even more robust?

Leadership Matters 2012: Building Leadership Capacity, Tuesday, May 8, and Wednesday, May 9, 2012, at the Westin Harbour Castle, Toronto, will bring together some of Canada’s top senior executives, renowned thought leaders, and key practitioners to examine the skills and competencies needed in leaders today, and will explore leadership development innovations – now and for the future.
