$46 billion a year is spent on leadership training, but a recent Gallup survey showed that 82 percent of employees find their leaders “uninspiring”. Why the gap? Because most leadership development focuses on outward skills like strategy, people management and finance. Instead, new research shows that leadership should start inward with the mind. By understanding how their own mind works and training it for the most essential qualities, leaders can lead themselves effectively first, in order to better lead their people and tap into their human need for meaning, fulfilment and human connectedness.

Rasmus Hougaard will share the research findings from his book 
“The Mind of the Leader”, the best-selling book published by Harvard Business Review Press. It is the result of a two-year study into understanding how leaders lead themselves, their people and their organizations for extraordinary results, and the key qualities he found that are essential to becoming effective leaders amidst today’s challenges. He will share what he gleaned from interviews with 250 C-level executives, assessments of more than 35,000 leaders, and speaking to leaders from companies worldwide (including many leading American firms such as Marriott, Cisco, and McKinsey and Company).
