The persistent introduction of emerging technology solutions across all dimensions of the security industry has begun to create a false narrative that humans – and the interpersonal skills required to adeptly lead them – are of increasingly lesser importance. Nothing could be further from the truth. As the security industry evolves toward highly integrated enterprise models, the skills required to effectively lead, collaborate, and innovate mandate ongoing development of such leadership attributes. Through facilitated exercises using different leadership development frameworks, participants will learn methods for improving critical interpersonal skills and derive insights to create breakthroughs for advancing their personal brand.
