Metcalf & Associates and ē•know Announce Webinar: The Impact of Leadership on Mergers & Acquisitions - Deal Maker or Deal Breaker?

Maureen Metcalf, CEO and founder of Metcalf & Associates, Inc., will be a featured guest panelist in ē•know’s Art of M&A webinar series: “Leadership in M&A: Deal Maker or Deal Breaker?” You don't have to be in charge to lead” on June 11 at 2pm ET.

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

Mergers and Acquisitions may be the most valuable and, at the same time, the riskiest strategic activity a company ever undertakes, yet it is surprising that many acquisitive companies have not put leadership qualities at the top of their “must have” list for embarking on M&A. This webinar focuses on how to be a center of influence that drives successful outcomes when you don't control the resources or make all the decisions. Please join us by registering for the webinar.

The panel consists of experienced executives who have extensive leadership and coaching experience at highly respected, acquisitive, global companies. This free, interactive, one-hour webinar is not to be missed. In addition to Metcalf, panelists include: Carla Morelli, Director, Corporate Development, JDSU; Tony Kuhel, Managing Director of Executive Leadership, Escalys and former Chief Process Engineer, Corporate Development, British Petroleum; David Hague, Partner, H2W Capital Ltd. and former Director, Corporate Development, The Timken Company, and Acquisition Integration Lead, Diebold Inc. The moderator is Steve Lance, Vice President of Global Sales, ē•know, Inc.

Panelists will discuss several M&A leadership and team related topics including: ”What are the qualities associated with a high-influence leader—regardless of formal title?” “What is the difference between influencing and manipulating?” "Am I a center of influence? Can I really lead when I am not in charge?” “What are some of the qualities in a leader that are most likely to cause failure in an M&A project?” “What happens when the person in charge isn't doing a good job leading? Should I grin and bear it like everyone else?”
