ATD Texas Special Event

Hosted by All Texas ATD Chapters


Virtual - Tuesday, October 17, 2023
11:30 - 1:00 PM (CT)



Presented by: Ryan Gottfredson

75% of organizations rated their leadership development programs as not very effective and 71% of organizations do not feel their leaders are able to lead their organizations into the future (BrandonHall Group, 2015). These statistics suggest that typical and traditional leadership development efforts are not currently meeting the demands of today's leaders. A new approach is needed. In this session, Ryan Gottfredson, Ph.D., and Wall-Street Journal best-selling author, will introduce what vertical development is, how it differs from traditional horizontal development efforts, and how you can employ vertical development in your organization to transformationally elevate your leaders.

Join us for an exciting ATD Texas Chapter event as we bring celebrated author, leadership development expert, and speaker Ryan Gottfredson, PhD to lead a special session on Leveling up Your Leadership Through Vertical Development. Whether you are looking to level up yourself or improve your organization’s leadership development efforts, you don’t want to miss this event!
