Calgary leaders discuss Developing Leadership Character

July 20, 2017


Even though character counts as much as competencies, it’s an often overlooked aspect of leadership. It is seldom used in recruiting, selecting, promoting, or developing leaders. Professor Gerard Seijts and a panel of leaders – Jeff Fielding, City Manager/Chief Administrative Officer, City of Calgary; Sarah Raiss, Corporate Director; and Andrew Wiswell, MBA '80, Independent Director and Consultant – discuss how character can be developed, strengthened, and applied in a business setting.

Seijts is Executive Director of the Ian O. Ihnatowycz Institute for Leadership and co-author of the book Developing Leadership Character. This video features highlights from the event held May 5 at the Calgary Petroleum Club that was part of Global Ivey Day.
