Understanding Altitude as a Leadership Essential

Leadership is about being close enough to your business, clients, and team to know what is happening, yet removed enough to make strategic decisions. It is also about adapting to engage and align people, priorities, and strategy.  But how do you cultivate the agility needed to consistently do this?

To be focused on the right issues at the right time and from the right perspective or elevation, leaders must understand altitude.  Building upon Marty Linsky and Dr. Ron Heiftz work in adaptive leadership, business psychologist Dr. Camille Preston helps leaders proactively build agility and capacity.

In this interactive presentation, Camille introduced the concept of altitude and offers actionable tools to understand and leverage it.
