Find Your Winning Moves When the Stakes Are High

The hardest part of leadership is mastering the response to inevitable high-risk, high-stakes challenges leaders will face in the role. Whether they’re making a split-second decision or finding the best strategy to navigate a crisis, how can they bring their best to each pivotal moment?

In this session, leadership coaching legend Carol Kauffman explores how the best leaders master the moments that matter most, leveraging decades of global C-level executive coaching. It starts with overcoming one’s leadership reflexes and reactions to find the optimal response to any situation, which readers will learn to do here.

Kauffman empowers leaders to slow down to own high-stakes moments, generate options, and expertly evaluate them before acting. This model helps leaders recognize key moments as they approach, like a conductor who anticipates what’s needed to deliver a great performance.

Carol Kauffman is an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, a visiting professor at Henley Business School, and a senior leadership adviser at Egon Zehnder. In 2021 she was named one of the world’s leading coaches by Thinkers50.
