Leading in a Recovering (and Even Rebounding) Economy

The Wharton School
June 16, 2010

As organizations begin to recover from the financial crisis of 2008-10, many of their leaders are guardedly but determinedly moving to restore their growth and re-embark on expansion.  In doing so, it is helpful to reflect on what we have learned from leading through the crisis and about the organizational and individual acts of leadership that should have been taken to avert or manage the crisis.  It is also essential to look ahead to the different kinds of leadership that will now be required for a world that wants to mend.  The fourteenth annual Wharton Leadership Conference in Philadelphia on June 16, 2010, focuses on leading in this post-crisis era of recovery and rebuilding.

The annual Wharton Leadership Conference is one of the gatherings most popular with, and most beneficial for, corporate leaders, according to a recent report by public relations firm Weber Shandwick entitled Five-Star Executive Conferences. An article by Forbes.com writer Matthew Kirdahy on the report notes that the Wharton Leadership Conference is second only to the Fortune Innovation/iMeme conference in the number of C-level speaker participants. And in a 2008 study by Burson-Marsteller, the conference was named as one of the "Most Valued Podiums" for CEOs and senior executives.
