Herminia Ibarra to Guest on Mariposa Leadership’s Popular Wise Talk Leadership Forum

Herminia Ibarra, a Thinkers 50 top business guru, to be interviewed by Sue Bethanis, CEO/Founder of Mariposa Leadership, on the popular Wise Talk Leadership Forum for executives on June 25, 2015.

San Francisco, CA, June 07, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Mariposa Leadership, Inc. is pleased to announce that Herminia Ibarra, the Cora Chaired Professor of Leadership and Learning, and Professor of Organizational Behavior at INSEAD, and author of the book, Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader, will be a guest on Wise Talk, a popular monthly leadership forum for technology executives, on Thursday, June 25, 2015 at 11am PT/2pm ET. In an interview with Sue Bethanis, CEO/Founder of Mariposa Leadership, Herminia will share findings from her research that challenge commonly-held views of how leaders become leaders.

Traditional leadership development methods are rooted in helping people think like a leader first in order to act like one. But Herminia argues, leaders become leaders by taking leadership actions. A paradigm shift is needed: one that allows for experimentation, branching out beyond routine work, existing habits and historical ways of defining oneself and one’s job. Through action, new thinking emerges and expands one’s leadership capacity.

Herminia Ibarra is the Cora Chaired Professor of Leadership and Learning, and Professor of Organizational Behavior at INSEAD. Prior to joining INSEAD she served on the Harvard Business School faculty for thirteen years. She is a member of the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Councils, a judge for the Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award, and Chairs the Visiting Committee of the Harvard Business School. Thinkers 50 ranked Ibarra #9 among the most influential business gurus in the world.

Professor Ibarra is an expert on professional and leadership development. Her recent book, Act Like a Leader, Think Like a Leader (Harvard Business School Press, 2015), explains how to step up to a bigger leadership role. Her best-selling book, Working Identity: Unconventional Strategies for Reinventing Your Career (HBSP, 2003) describes how people reinvent their careers.

Ibarra is the author of numerous articles in the Harvard Business Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal, and Organization Science and writes frequently for business media including the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, and New York Times. She directs The Leadership Transition, an executive program designed for managers moving into broader leadership roles and speaks internationally on leadership, talent management, and women’s careers.

A native of Cuba, Ibarra received her M.A. and Ph.D. from Yale University, where she was a National Science Foundation Fellow.
