During the fifth session of "Inspiring Conversations," we will focus on the topic "Leading with Purpose and Humanity by Aligning Head and Heart" through a conversation with Hubert Joly and Hortense le Gentil. Both have shown profound leadership throughout their careers, have written about it in their books, and continue to model this today together. The conversation will explore topics such as the power of alignment, the value of purpose, and not being afraid of emotion as a leader.
