    The "Awakened" Leader: Creating Purpose and Passion at Work

    Rossella Derickson & Krista Henley

    Principals, Corporate Wisdom & Directors of the South Bay Organizational Development Network

    Leaders that see into the future realize the need to create corporate cultures that attract and retain talent. Studies show that employees are more engaged when their leaders create purpose driven initiatives that connect the product or service to the greater good of society. This translates to a competitive advantage that inspires the workforce and drives solutions to global problems. This talk and the ensuing discussion will shape and even change your thinking about how to be an "awakened and socially responsible" leader.
