See more about Kevin and the topic below.

8:00-10:30 a.m. 

Online via Zoom. We’ll send the meeting link in your registration confirmation, and in a couple of reminders as the event date approaches.

The Coachable Leader
Presented by Kevin Wilde
Kevin Wilde’s professional career has been a dedication to leadership: helping develop leaders in his organizations, researching, writing, and presenting about leadership, and most recently serving as an Applied Leadership faculty member at Carlson School of Management.
During the last few years Kevin has been examining the role of coachability in leadership development. At the Summit, Kevin will share research and insights for us about the coachable leader, with emphasis on how we can assess our own coachability as leaders. He’ll also help us with how to incorporate techniques that can influence the coachability of the leaders we are helping in their journeys.

It would take a giant chunk of space to list all of Kevin’s career accomplishments, but here are just a few of the highlights:

  • 17 years in talent leadership at General Electric
  • 17 years as VP and Chief Learning Officer at General Mills
  • Named Chief Learning Officer of the Year by CLO Magazine
  • Many publications, including his book “Dancing with the Talent Stars: 25 Moves that Matter Now”
  • 8-year faculty member, Carlson School of Management, Executive MBA Applied Leadership
We should also note that Kevin has been on the stage at our Summit events twice before, most recently as part of the amazing panel of CLOs in 2016.
