Refreshing Your Network for Agile Leadership with Linda A. Hill, Harvard Business School’s Wallace Brett Donham Professor of Business Administration and chair of the Leadership Initiative

Yes, some two years later, amid still evolving Covid-19 restrictions, managers and employees must continue to identify and hone new skills needed to master unusual work settings. Networking remains a key one.

For our virtual March 8th webinar, Professor Linda Hill will preview one of the actionable topics to be addressed in her new four-day Executive Education course: refreshing your network for agile leadership.

HBS Professor Hill has been ranked #10 on the list of “Top Management Thinkers in the World” by Thinkers50. Proving the point, she is launching the new program May 1-4, specifically aimed at women of color. The goals include increasing individuals’ ability to realize their leadership potential while helping their companies innovate, perform, and grow.

To prepare for this webinar, take a look at the Harvard Business Review article, Remote Networking as a Person of Color, which explores the complexities of peer relationships in the era of remote working.

Participants must register by NOON on March 7th to receive details on joining the discussion. The Zoom link will be sent out 24 hours before the event.

Please note that no refunds will be issued.
