Innovation While in the Spotlight

We live in a culture of celebrity CEOs who seem to be full of confidence, self assuredness, respect, power and wealth. I have worked directly for three of the most powerful tech CEOs of our lifetime at Amazon and Google and I have witnessed their actual paths to greatness - which were far less linear than they appear in retrospect. The common denominator between these powerhouse CEOs is that they, just like Olympic athletes, never stop training, learning and improving. In this session I have broken down their formulas for learning while in the spotlight in a way that increases your authority and respect while demonstrating humility and willingness to learn. In this session you will learn how to increase your influence, power and legacy through learning and stop feeling so lonely at the top.
