Includes an online presentation
Please join us for a special LQH on leadership, featuring a roundtable presentation and discussion by a panel of members of the LDMC Executive Committee. Effective leadership often requires application of both hard and soft skills and solutions, which may include setting a vision and executing to it, delegation, listening, empathy, coaching, reallocating/outsourcing work, and technology/efficiency solutions. All these and other topics are fair game as the panel tackles the important area of leadership. LDMC Executive Committee members, including Stephanie S. Lambert, Managing Counsel, Staples, Inc.; Timothy Phillips, General Counsel, American Cancer Society, Inc.; Jason Reyes, Vice President & Assistant General Counsel, EMC Corporation
