Joe Folkman, Ph.D—a renowned leadership development expert and President of Zenger Folkman, will be presenting an upcoming webinar entitled The Uninspiring Leader: 10 Fatal Flaws that Cripple Leaders’ Effectiveness on Wednesday, July 21st at 1:00 pm EDT.
Poor leadership in good times can be hidden, but poor leadership in challenging times is a recipe for disaster. Based on his research presented in the Harvard Business Review, and presented to a full house at ASTD 2010, Dr. Folkman will focus on the ten most common mistakes made by ineffective leaders, and address how one can avoid and overcome those behaviors.
To find out why leaders fail, Zenger Folkman collected and scrutinized data from thousands of leaders in two different studies. The combined results reveal why many Fortune 500 executives have been fired and what shortcomings the least effective leaders have in common.
“After all our research,” said Folkman, “it has become apparent that uninspiring leaders have a substantial impact on the people they manage, and they typically fail to achieve results. It’s my hope that by shedding some light on these common mistakes, leaders can learn to avoid them and focus on helping their teams achieve extraordinary results.”
Webinar attendees will learn:
- What causes leaders to be uninspiring
- 10 characteristics of uninspiring leaders
- Ways to identify the “Fatal Flaws”
