Who Should Attend

It is no longer business as usual – and therefore it is no longer leadership as usual: From the very first moment of the very first day of the Leadership: Content and Character FSIL conference participants experience the powerful ideas and practices that define what a leader does and who a leader is.  They are immersed in a deep learning experience that is focused on developing and equipping leaders with the knowledge, multi-dimensional skills, and enriched ability to successfully address immediate challenges while shaping their organization’s future. The Fellow of the Society of Insurance Leaders (FSIL) program is a truly powerful and transformative development experience. Participants are prepared with advanced management knowledge and command of contemporary leadership concepts, tools and techniques. Deep insights and understanding to lead and navigate through an increasingly complex insurance industry setting are conveyed and mastered.  The FSIL then goes beyond the content of leadership topics and teaches attendees critical leadership thinking on how to recognize patterns of data, performance and trends – separating the truly relevant leadership issues from organizational noise. FSIL candidates discover new ways to create and seize opportunities – accurately define problems and shape lasting solutions – while staging high impact innovative initiatives.  Participants are conditioned to orchestrate positive organizational change – build outstanding teams – and to mobilize staff and peers to execute with focus, commitment, and a sense of urgency. The FSIL program also immerses candidates in an exploration of the characteristics that distinguish great leaders – and to learn by walking in the footsteps of leaders who have shaped history. 

The conference curriculum conveys deep understanding of critical contemporary leadership topics. Advanced management and leadership concepts and techniques are covered through dynamic tutorial presentations. Each tutorial module is characterized by high engagement, interaction, and lively discussion. The tutorials are intense and hard hitting; combining cutting edge ideas with practical, proven and enduring leadership concepts and techniques covering such topics as:
