Navigate Forward’s 4th Annual Author’s Breakfast

Navigate Forward’s 4th Annual Author’s Breakfast was held on April 24th with 250 attendees hearing Steven Snyder share insights from his book, “Leadership and the Art of Struggle”. Snyder is the founder of Twin Cities based Snyder Leadership Group and is currently an Executive Fellow in Leadership at the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business. His book contends that all leaders face adversity. Exceptional leaders thrive in it.

Leadership is often a struggle, and yet strong taboos keep us from talking openly and honestly about our difficulties for fear of looking weak and seeming to lack confidence. Using real-life stories drawn from his extensive research studying 151 diverse episodes of leadership struggle—as well as from his experiences working with Bill Gates in the early years of Microsoft and as a CEO and executive coach—Snyder shows how to navigate intense challenges to achieve personal growth and organizational success. He details strategies for embracing struggle and offers a host of unique tools and hands-on practices.
