A Conversation with Carla Harris:
Financial Services Executive, Board Member, Author, Artist, and Change Agent
Thursday, July 6*
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm (Pacific)
Please join us for an inspiring conversation with the amazing Carla Harris. Carla will share learning, wisdom, and stories from her latest book “Lead to Win: How to be a Powerful, Impactful, Influential Leader in Any Environment”. Work has undergone a sea change, introducing a new matrix of concerns and questions for leaders and potential leaders. What does it take to lead effectively now? What does leadership even mean? In her book, Carla examines the journey from individual contributor to leader. She targets the essential skills necessary to succeed, such as the importance of taking risks, creating a vision, and leveraging assets like relationships and partnerships. At the heart of this book are the eight things you must be intentional about every day—authenticity, building trust, creating other leaders, clarity, diversity, innovation, inclusivity, and voice—qualities that you need to hone and manifest to become a powerful, impactful leader no matter where you work. She also examines the key traits of being a transformational leader, focusing on the gaps she has seen in leadership that could impede or damage any leader’s effectiveness.
