I'm trying to help people think about leadership differently, as something we practice, not just achieve and stop learning. Every leader can continually be advancing her or his skills.” This was the goal for Dr. Nathan J. Hiller’s keynote presentation at the LEAD2017 Conference, held recently in Nashville, TN, and presented annually by HR.com. Each year, this prestigious two-day conference brings HR professionals from around the world to learn insights and tools for better leadership.
Dr. Hiller, Academic Director at the Center for Leadership at Florida International University (FIU) followed in the footsteps of outstanding presenters in previous years such as former President Bill Clinton, and Vice President for GE Healthcare, Raghu Krishnamoorthy, with his presentation titled “Amplify Your Leadership with a Whisper.”
“I shared with attendees small actions that can have an enormous impact for the people on a leader’s team,” Dr. Hiller says.
