A Practical Leadership Approach to Sustaining Long-Term Performance: Leadership Practicum & McKinsey OHI Solution Insights into Organizational Health Join us Wednesday, November 19th to build leadership skills you can apply the very next day to improve the effectiveness of your organization. Leveraging insights from McKinsey's extensive research and experience working with leaders across sectors, gain new understanding into why the "soft skills" matter so much and how they translate into sustaining long-term performance. For Yale SOMers, this is a call to action and a way to give you the skills you need to be a tranformative leader at any organization. Dr. Michael Burchell and Alexandra Camp, Client Services Leads for McKinsey's Organizational Health Index Solution in North America, will present insights from 10 years of research and ~2 million survey participants to help us understand how leaders today are measuring and managing organizational health to create high functioning and effective organizations.
