Cohesive Leadership Teams – 5/31/12

The East Bay Haas Alumni Network, in partnership with the Lester Center for Entrepreneurship, is excited to offer an interactive workshop with Heather Hollick, Executive Coach, Haas MBA Alumni and founder of the Cohesive Leadership Project, on the topic, “How to Build a Cohesive Leadership Team for Start-Ups.”

Interactive Workshop Description: Start-ups face compounding challenges that include escalating competitive market pressures and sophisticated consumers with complex needs. In this environment, successful organizations are those that can listen, change and adapt. A cohesive leadership team is essential to leading this charge.

A cohesive leadership team is a team that wants to work together, that knows how to work together, that understands how to communicate and collaborate, and is propelled by the power of leveraging each others’ strengths. Such teams inspire and attract talent, create and adapt products, identify and penetrate markets, execute and deliver results, scale and grow the business. In this interactive workshop, we will be exploring the most important element in starting and building successful start-up organizations, a highly functional, cohesive leadership team.
