You’re under pressure. You have a bold vision for your successful company. You want to be the disruptor and achieve long-term growth. Yet many of your stakeholders are pushing back, focused on short-term results. The clock is ticking.

It’s tempting to push forward despite resistance. But even the most compelling vision isn’t enough to drive real stakeholder commitment to moving in a new direction. Persistent conflicts keep your company circling in an orbit of the status quo, at risk of disruption by nimble competitors. 

What’s the secret of breaking orbit to achieve long-term growth? It’s  embracing three leadership paradoxes that can naturally emerge in uncharted territory. 

In this powerful keynote, go behind the scenes with Pam Harper as she shares the “break orbit” story of a top leadership team facing a major turning point on their company’s growth journey.  You’ll discover how embracing these often hidden leadership paradoxes can work to your advantage.

Come away with practical insights you can apply to your own company’s growth, and a model to resolve pushback, strengthen commitment, and ignite game-changing results.
