About the conference:

The theme of this year’s conference is “Leading Healthy Teams.” What does it mean to lead a healthy team? How can you be empowered in your own leadership? What qualities do you hope to embody as a leader? In 2019, the Leadercast Live stage will bring together experts in leadership and organizational health who will answer these questions and help attendees master the art and science of developing and leading healthy teams. 

Companies with ideals of improving people’s lives at the center of all they do outperform others by 400%.

More than 70% of people consider an organization’s environmental and/or social impact when deciding where to work.

Employees that feel they are working towards a good cause show increased productivity by up to 30%.

People who are able to make a social or environmental impact on the job are more satisfied by a 2:1 ratio.

Leadercast Live will allow attendees and viewers to improve their own personal leadership journey with tips for self-evaluation and self-growth. Top leadership experts will inspire local participants, and the more than 100,000 people who will attend the event live in Atlanta or at hundreds of other simulcast locations in more than 20 countries.
