Imagine being a leader in an organization with not 1 or 3 but 29 different strategies? Strategies like eradicate polio, transform U.S. education, and ensure vaccines for every newborn child. Join us when we welcome Chris Ernst, PhD, who will share the unfolding story of how developing leaders with new, adaptive and networked leadership capabilities (to complement their already strong technical capabilities), became a key leverage point for boosting social connection and innovation for societal impact.
Chris Ernst is currently head of People and Organization Potential at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Previously, he has held leadership roles with the globally top-ranked Center for Creative Leadership and served as vice president of leadership and organization effectiveness for Juniper Networks in Silicon Valley.
As an active speaker and writer on global issues, his work is published in leading academic journals and outlets such as
HBR, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Chief Learning Officer, Talent Management, Organizational Dynamics
MIT Sloan Management Review,
and in authoring two books, including CCL’s best-seller
Boundary Spanning Leadership: Six Practices for Solving Problems, Driving Innovation, and Transforming Organizations.
