Herding Tigers Keynote

Leading highly creative people who are doing highly creative work is a difficult challenge. However, the upside to getting it right is huge. In this talk, Todd Henry shares the core things talented, creative people need from every leader, the common places where leaders unknowingly fail to provide them, and the handful of conversations, practices, and rituals that can set you and your team up to do its best work every day.

  • How to establish a leadership philosophy that builds clarity and trust.
  • How to shape and prune your culture, and create an environment that talented people love to work in.
