Inspirational Leadership


Published on

In today’s world, rules and regulations to control behaviors are no longer effective ways to run a company. Results are produced by employees who are driven and inspired by their leaders and peers to do the right thing and make the right decision; and those who do not work just for the pay but for their ability to achieve.

Many leadership articles and talent management trainings have now begun to focus on inspirational leadership. It is believed that companies/teams are more engaged and function more effectively with inspiring leaders (with or without official titles). In the process, employees become more engaged, a trait that transcends other areas of their lives including community involvement.

For the past five years, Mike Haddad, president and CEO of Schreiber Foods, has been inspiring 7,000+ partners by abiding by principles of inspirational leadership. He will share his experience of inspiring others and the journey he’s taken to become an inspiration leader not only in the corporate world but also in the community.
