The life sciences industry has grown and changed dramatically since we first developed Leveraging Your Leadership in the late 2000s. The demands and expectations of today’s life science leaders are not what they once were.
Today, in a crowded and highly competitive market where success is defined by being first to market or best in class, life science leaders must be more agile, strategic thinkers, and skilled decision-makers than ever before. They must be dynamic influencers who push the bounds of what is possible and drive company innovation with both speed and quality. And they must lead their teams with the emotional intelligence it takes to motivate people in stressful and high-pressure environments, where the need to perform at high levels is more critical than any point in our past.
With this in mind, we redesigned Leveraging Your Leadership to meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s life science companies and leaders. We work with leaders to understand what it takes to be successful, including: How to choose the right decision-making process for the job at hand; How to navigate tricky matrix-based structures; How to set and communicate clear priorities, make sound decisions with limited or ambiguous information, influence key stakeholders, and collaborate effectively; How to inspire and create high-performing teams; How to challenge assumptions and think differently to create quantum leaps, not incremental gains; and How to drive meaningful, positive change.
If there is one thing we know for sure after developing leading life science companies for over 33 years, it’s that leaders are made, not born. Life science companies need strategic leaders who think well beyond their areas of functional expertise to grow and scale effectively as their businesses become more complex. Yet when they promote high-potential individuals based on their science or technical expertise, investing in the development of leaders is not a nice to have, it is an absolute must to be successful.
Leveraging Your Leadership is for life science executives, vice presidents, and directors who have a strong management foundation with a track record of success and are looking to build the leadership skills and capabilities needed to succeed in today’s ever-changing life sciences industry and reach their next level of success.
