In this provocative talk, leadership guru Margaret Heffernan shares her wisdom for change and the importance of cultivating organizational cultures in which everybody cares and everybody counts.
Former CEO of five businesses, serial entrepreneur and author, Margaret Heffernan explores the all-too-human thought patterns such as conflict avoidance and selective blindness that lead organizations and managers astray. She’s calling for managers to feed workers’ hunger for connection — and for workers to recognize that coffee breaks and hallway chats can actually make them more valuable, and valued, employees. Her past work includes award-winning television and documentary production, interactive multi-media products, Internet business management and public relations campaigns. She currently is an advisor, mentor and writer for the Financial Times and Huffington Post.
