Powering Up: Leading Startups with Grit and Resilience

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How does a startup leader apply 'grit and resilience' to leading an organization?  

This expert panel will highlight the experiences of experienced startup leaders and how they have applied the concepts of "grit and reslience" in their roles.  

Rather than focusing on "do you have it" questions, we'll focus on the ways in which levels of "grit and resilience" surfaces in startup organizations, teams, and culture.  What happens when it's lacking? We'll uncover teachable moments and stories.  

As part of a Q&A with panelists, we'll also ask attendees to share their best takeaways on startup leadership learned during the week.  Leave "powered up" to pursue startup leadership!
