New York, NY (PRWEB) September 13, 2016
Susan Tardanico (https://www.linkedin.com/in/susan-tardanico-6756b545), CEO of the Authentic Leadership Alliance and Executive in Residence at the Center for Creative Leadership, will speak and moderate a panel on “Courageous Leadership in the New Normal” at the annual WICT (Women in Cable Television) Leadership Conference on September 19 in New York City. The conference draws executives from companies across media and entertainment such as ABC/Disney, A+E Networks, Cablevision, Cisco, Comcast NBCUniversal, Discovery, ESPN, FOX, HBO, Showtime, Turner, Viacom and others.
“Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity are facts of life in the ‘new normal’ and courageous leadership has never been more important,” said Tardanico. “Decisive action requires courage and an ability to effectively assess risk while the sands continue to shift beneath our feet.”
Tardanico will lead a conversation of thought leaders including Kamila Sip, PhD, a neuroscientist focused on investigating risk-based decision making; Italia Commisso Weinand, Executive Vice President of Mediacom Communications Corp; and Judi Lopez, Senior Vice President of Fuse Media. Together they will explore various aspects of decision-making and risk-taking, linking neuroscientific findings to practical experience. They will also explore the role of authenticity and confidence in effective leadership in this “new normal.”
