Fred Kiel (author, Return on Character, Harvard Business Review Press, April 2015) and Amy Swenson (Leadership Character Strategist) will be sharing groundbreaking Return on Character™ research that definitively quantifies the connection between leadership character behavior and organization profitability, employee engagement, and risk. Kiel and Swenson will be sharing some key frameworks to help attendees further develop a character-led leadership culture within any organization. As pre-work for this session, attendees will be asked to complete KRW’s Individual Character Reputation Predictor. The predictor is a short self-assessment designed to help you gain insight into how your leadership character may be perceived by those around you. Results will be used in aggregate and anonymously during the keynote to represent the character reputation in the room. Attendees will also have the option to receive a personalized predictor report post session. Character matters.

You will learn:

  • Understand the quantifiable impact the leadership team’s character reputation has on profit, risk and employee engagement 
  • New perspectives and frameworks to help with building a character-led leadership culture
  • How to redefine the term “leadership character” to consider specific set of leadership habits that have a business level impact
