Unleashing the Potential of Those You Lead


Monday, September 14, 2020, 4:00pm to 5:00pm


Online—Harvard Business School

Join the Harvard Business School for a conversation with Frances Frei and Anne Morriss, authors of Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader's Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You.

Leadership isn't easy. It takes grit, courage, and vision, among other things, that can be hard to come by on your toughest days. When leaders and aspiring leaders seek out advice, they're often told to try harder. Dig deeper. Look in the mirror and own your natural-born strengths and fix any real or perceived career-limiting deficiencies.

Frances Frei argues that this popular leadership advice glosses over the most important thing you do as a leader: build others up. Leadership isn't about you. It's about how effective you are at empowering other people—and making sure this impact endures even in your absence. Based on insights from her book Unleashed, coauthored by Anne Morriss, Frances will share how the boldest, most effective leaders use a special combination of trust, love, and belonging to create an environment in which other people can excel.
