Tune in to SiriusXM Channel 111 (7:00–9:00 PM, ET) for Leadership In Action
Leadership in Action is a show intended for those in private, public, and non-profit organizations who seek to strengthen their leadership capabilities through exposure to both research evidence and practical experience. We see leadership as the act of making a positive difference in the world, for the world, and we will present research evidence, pragmatic concepts, and tangible illustrations of what is required to build and lead a team in any organization — and how that leadership can be strengthened in both oneself and throughout a firm’s ranks. Leadership in Action brings leaders from a wide array of organizations into the studio for engaging dialogue on how they have led, what they have learned, and what has made the greatest difference.
Leadership in Action is a live, call-in format that airs on Thursdays, 7:00–9:00 PM, EDT. This two hour broadcast is hosted by Professor Mike Useem, Director of the Center for Leadership and Change Management; Jeff Klein, Executive Director of the Wharton Leadership Program; and Dr. Anne M. Greenhalgh, Deputy Director of the Wharton Leadership Program. It is broadcast live from the Wharton School on the University of Pennsylvania campus.
