San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) July 10, 2009
Pfeiffer and Jossey-Bass, Imprints of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. will host the second-annual Leadership Challenge Forum August 6-7th at The Renaissance Chicago Hotel in Chicago, IL.
As we hear in the news everyday about another company folding, there is a call for strong leaders during tough economic times. Authors James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner are the foremost experts on the topic, and their best-selling book, The Leadership Challenge is the gold standard manual that proves time and again that leadership is everyone's business.
THE LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE FORUM 2009 is the follow up to last year's sold out conference. Join authors Kouzes and Posner along with John Hope Bryant, Founder and CEO of Operation HOPE, for expert panel and roundtable discussions, networking and new product presentations. This year's focus will be Leveraging Leadership Across Generations, where some of the topics explored include the realities of our multi-generational workplace and inventive ways to maintain leadership development during lean times. The aspiring leader will explore new ideas, the latest research and practical learning tools with other leadership development colleagues.
The presenters for the 2009 Leadership Challenge Forum are set. There are over 30 presentations from organizations such as the American Red Cross, St. Vincent Hospital, Nestle USA, Stanford University, and much more. Check out the Program Page for the full list. With interactive sessions and dynamic keynotes you can't miss, we are giving you even more reasons to meet us in Chicago.
Anyone can begin a lifetime of leadership. Do not miss this exclusive opportunity to learn and network with the most prominent authorities on the topic.
