Dent focuses on drawing actionable insights from the stories of others and building an environment where peers from diverse backgrounds and fields of expertise are encouraged to build meaningful relationships through conversation and shared experiences.
Focusing on developing competence in your leadership is something with huge leverage. Leaders and managers spend more time with individuals throughout an organization than anyone else, and their attitudes, skills, and competencies can impact the motivation and effectiveness of those they work with.
Dent is a great way for leaders to develop new competencies and at the same time build up a reservoir of enthusiasm and good will, that will enhance the output of everyone back home when they return.
