Compassionate Leadership for IT Managers and Supervisors:
Do your clients see your business as a valued partner or just another commodity? In a near-future world of Artificial Intelligence, robotics, and automation, commodity businesses will become increasingly expendable while valued partner businesses will be seen as critical to their client’s success. Your leadership skills will make the difference as you guide your teams through the turbulent waters of change. The companies who are nimble and whose employee teams are aligned on common goals will succeed in this new paradigm, while the others will get left behind. In this highly interactive keynote by Don Crawley, author of The Compassionate Geek, you’ll learn how to introduce and model the qualities of compassion and mindfulness to your teams so your company stays out of the commodity trap and becomes your client’s valued partner.
