Dr. Mitchell Kusy, Organization Learning and Development Department, was the keynote speaker at the International Research Colloquium March 4 at Henley Management College, Henley-on-Thames, England. His presentation was based on the research study that he and Dr. Louellen Essex conducted about the most significant mistakes leaders make. Interviewing successful leaders worldwide, they identified seven most critical mistakes leaders make and what they do to rebound from them immediately. In addition, they identified two fatal leadership errors that are not recoverable. This research will be the content of their next book, due in bookstores this fall.
