Just Ask – Why Seeking Support is Your Biggest Strength

Wednesday 9:30 – 10:30 AM

Session Description

The highest achievers reach the top with the help of their networks. They know their strengths and they know when to ask for help. The most successful businesses will increasingly be those who create a working culture where everyone feels encouraged to share, to admit that they don’t know the answers and to seek solutions from across the organisation.

For his new book Just Ask, Andy Lopata interviewed business owners, senior executives and individuals in a range of fields, including sports, the arts and politics, across the world about how vulnerability and openness has impacted their journey. In his talk, Andy shares some of the powerful stories that came out of this research and explores the impact on individuals and businesses going forward.
