“Great leaders lay the groundwork for their employees to be successful, and are not threatened by their knowledge. Rather, they seek and welcome a higher lever of expertise from each of their team members."
In this episode, LRN's Marsha Ershaghi Hames interviews Deni Anderson, director of global compliance operations at Endeavor, a talent, events, and entertainment management company.
Anderson describes how she broadened her understanding on the compliance issues leaders face when she began to work on the inside of organizations. She shares the key traits of good leaders, and how training is necessary to make sure all levels of management support their employees.
The hidden biases women face in the workplace, and how they can limit opportunities for female leaders, are explored. Anderson offers her thoughts on how to work to eliminate the barriers for women at work, including work/life balance programs, mentorship tracks for women leaders, and eliminating negative gender stereotypes.
