What Works Series Slides: From Data to Action: The Power of Intentional Leadership

The demands and expectations on data and analytic leaders are accelerating. Leading teams and organizations into the possibilities enabled by generative AI requires effective leadership. Specifically, generative AI will disrupt and create opportunities across the data lifecycle, from acquisition to insights to action. Non-technical skills such as communication, empathy, and influence are no longer limited to specific roles but essential for the entire team.

This session will guide you through specific actions and suggest tools to establish your leadership baseline, priorities, and methods to execute intentional leadership growth plans using agile methodologies.

You Will Learn:

  • Why leadership is important and how it is acquired.

  • How to use a leadership development framework for assessment, planning, and action.

  • How the circle of control and influence empowers our leadership approach.

  • A case study demonstrating how intentional leadership development enhances team performance.
