About this talk

Join us for the next Red Hat® Coffee Hour with Intel session as we celebrate U.S. Professional Wellness Month by encouraging personal and professional growth. As many seasoned professionals retire from the workforce, learn from Carla Harris, Senior Client Advisor, Former Vice Chairman and managing Director of Morgan Stanley, and author of Expect to Win: 10 Proven Strategies to surviving in the workplace, how to build the next generation of leaders. In past decades, particularly in “producer cultures”, professionals were given positions of leadership and authority because they were great “producers”. The top financial trader, the banker that posted the most revenues, or the lawyer that had the most billable hours were compensated with money, an elevated title and positions of leadership without much thought as to whether the person was the kind of individual that could motivate and inspire others to perform beyond their own expectations. Yet, today, we find ourselves in an environment where a growing majority of the professional workforce are millennials and generation Z’ers who demand motivation and inspiration as table stakes for their performance in any environment. During this session, we’ll talk with Carla about what it takes to be an outstanding leader in today’s environment. She’ll cover the 8 things that leaders must be INTENTIONAL about in order to be more impactful: authenticity, building trust, clarity, creating other leaders, diversity, innovation, inclusivity, and voice.
