Leaders Who Lust: Power, Money, Sex, Success, Legitimacy, LegacyTUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 20206:00-7:00 P.M.Register TodayAmong our most extra-ordinary leaders are those driven by an impulse they cannot completely stop – lust. Lust, however, is not an abstraction, it has definition. Drawing from her new book Leaders Who Lust: Power, Money, Sex, Success, Legitimacy, Legacy, Barbara Kellerman (James MacGregor Burns Lecturer in Public Leadership and Founding Executive Director, Center for Public Leadership) is joined by David Gergen (Professor of Public Service and Co-Founder, Center for Public Leadership) for a conversation about the six types of lust that motivate and manifest in leadership. The two will also discuss the concept of lust as a leadership trait more broadly: Is lust innate, learned, or both? How do we draw a distinction between lust and drive? And without lust, can a leader be successful?* RSVP by 12:00 PM ET on Tuesday, 11/17.
