We hope these conversations have the potential to transform thought and action. We will feature in the coming months a variety of diverse practitioners, that I’m certain will offer new and interesting perspectives on a variety of provocative topics.
Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
In a recent PriceWaterHouseCooper’s study, over 1200 Global CEO’s put acquisition and training of new talent in leadership as their number one concern for future success. There is a huge need for innovation of thought in the world of leadership development to address these concerns. Enter the experiential leadership development firm. These creative firms offer advantages that more traditional, less nimble firms can’t. They also offer perspectives on leadership and management that are often more progressive and in many cases more effective than their training focused competitors. Make no mistake though, these are global firms with high caliber talent attracted by innovative work environments and rapid growth opportunities. And firms like The Refinery Leadership Partners are using technology in disruptive ways to have engaging, and provocative conversations.
In January of this year, Vancouver headquartered leadership development firm, The Refinery Leadership Partners launched its “Refinery Voices” Video series. The series is built for digital consumption, with short 3 minute clips featuring thought-provoking conversations from multiple perspectives and backgrounds in leadership and management. The Refinery’s CEO Dr. Mark Frien framed the series as “…an experiment playing host to conversations about leadership. We hope these conversations have the potential to transform thought and action. We will feature in the coming months a variety of diverse practitioners, that I’m certain will offer new and interesting perspectives on a variety of provocative topics.”
