Thursday, October 18, 2012

Leading must be different moving forward.  In the fourth in a series of leadership conversations, a diverse panel of six of ULI’s Trustees will share their insights on the skills needed to thrive in the coming decade and beyond.  Are they using new models?  Who are they emulating? Who is best of class? How do they “course correct?”    What will be the most important leadership skills? This highly interactive format will combine comments from the panel as well as significant audience interaction.  In addition, the session will be recorded graphically for distribution to the participants.

What’s Next for the Entrepreneurial Company
Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Led by a panel of ULI Trustees and industry experts, this highly interactive session will address how the most entrepreneurial firms are responding to leading in these challenging times—for example, by leveraging CEO succession planning as a means to improve the overall business, not merely prepare the organization for a leadership transition.   Backed by a survey of nearly 250 real estate CEOs and numerous conversations with industry leaders, the panel will address the following questions:  Who is the best of class? Who are my role models for managing, both within and outside the real estate industry?  Is my organization a “Succession Leader” or a “Succession Laggard?”
