Roselinde Torres' Power Speech Defines What a Great Leader Means

Roselinde Torres discusses what a great leader means in her power speech. Torres tells the audience of the definition of a leader from another time: the image of the all knowing superhero who stands, commands and protects his followers. Torres discusses the current leadership development programs for success as a model that is incompatible with the future and stunts growth instead of promoting it.

Torres' power speech mentions conducting a study of over 4,000 companies and observed the effectiveness of leadership programs. The result is a 58% talent gap for critical leadership roles, which means that more than 50% of companies have failed to cultivate and grow great leaders.

Torres invites us to question whether or not our companies are helping us prepare to become a 21st century leader. And having spent 25 years of her professional life to observe great leaders, Torres has a wealth of knowledge, enough to motivate the audience to discover their inner leader.
