Morning program: Partnership Is the New Leadership, featuring Ty Bennett


Over the last five years a survey of more than 5,000 leaders asked one question …what do you want from your people? The answer was consistently …commitment.  What builds commitment is the leader’s approach to building relationships, providing value, creating buy-in and communicating with influence.  Using case studies of leaders and organizations whose culture and growth is built through partnership-based leadership, Ty Bennett’s talks share proven strategies and techniques to increase the leadership and overall commitment of your people.
