Just finished the second session from Carly Fiorina. She was called the most influential woman in business by Fortune Magazine. She was hired by HP as their CEO & later fired by their board. More of her story is here.
The title of the session? The same as her book: "Tough Choices."
Main line of discussion? "Her experiences from being a temporary secretary to the only female CEO of HP taught her: everybody struggles with fears of something; the value of being on a participative team; good leaders need a combination of passion (for vision) and dispassion (about personal feelings); good leaders are continually & intentionally learning to become a better leader."
Bill Hybels STRONGLY recommended that every person purchase her candid leadership book. He purchased the book for his team, gave them a month to read it, and discussed it section by section with them. (Makes me want to get it & read it.) 🙂
