PDU Categories/Quantity. Business and Strategic Management - 0.75 PDUs / Leadership – 0.75 PDUs
Synopsis of Session. Leadership within a business needs to be cultivated if it's to make enough of an impact on the enterprise. This roundtable will explore that need. This focused roundtable group discussion will serve as a qualitative approach to gain an in‐depth understanding of issues impacting managers at all levels.

During this interactive session participants will participate in breakout groups to address the following questions and then report out:
- What is the state of business leadership?
- What is the future of business?
- How will leadership need to change?
Learning Objectives. PMs will:
- Understand met and unmet needs.
