“I believe most people can be leaders or better leaders. You can create or participate in change and a better future. You can make a difference in your own lives, the lives of others and the life of your organization. If you believe you can.”

This piece contains a powerful, inspirational and prescient talk about leadership. Part 1 contains some conversation and the talk, to be followed by questions from the audience in Part 2. Where do leaders come from, what makes them stand out and how do they learn the skills necessary to take what they do to the next level?

Presented by Desiree Chappell and Monty Mythen with Jeff Vender, Emeritus, Harris Family Foundation Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology at NorthShore University Health System, Evanston, Illinois and Clinical Professor at the University Of Chicago Pritzker School Of Medicine in Chicago, Illinois.
