Through his tenure as US ambassador to the United Kingdom and Sweden, the National Finance Chair for the Obama campaign, and as an entrepreneur who helped build CNET Networks, Matthew Barzun has learned that the best leaders are those who see the value in sharing their power.
Traditional methods of leadership hoard power in either a top-down or bottom-up approach, neither of which really leads to innovation, collaboration, or enthusiasm. By learning to let go, leaders create environments where creativity thrives, trust is strengthened, and inclusivity grows. In his book The Power of Giving Away Power, Barzun offers examples of how organizations and leaders can benefit from sharing power to create a more vibrant and adaptable network.
Join us on December 15th for this hybrid event with special guest speaker Matthew Barzun! Matthew will be joined in conversation with moderator Margaret Mueller, President and CEO, The Executives’ Club of Chicago.
