Great leaders are disruptors. They are loud, galvanizing risk-takers. At least that’s the traditional view. Groundbreaking new research conducted by Russell Reynolds Associates and Hogan Assessments shows that great leaders are also quiet, pragmatic and vulnerable connectors. The proficiency to span the breadth of Loud and Quiet traits is increasingly recognized as a key differentiator among the best leaders. Art Hopkins will discuss this research, its application, and how leading companies are embracing these findings to think more holistically about the ideal leadership profile.
