LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT
Peter Docker and David Mead Discover the “Why” at Ultimate Software
Working closely with Simon Sinek–the renowned leadership expert and author of the bestselling book Start With Why–but in their own unique ways, and with their own perspectives, Peter Docker and David Mead are helping to advance Simon’s vision of the world. Both Peter and David are passionate about enabling others to be extraordinary. In their talks and workshops, they help to harness the power of “Why” to create extraordinary cultures and sustainable high performance.
Recently, what began as a half-day “Why Discovery Workshop” with Peter Docker and David Mead for the leadership team of Ultimate Software’s Services Group, led to a comprehensive learning and development initiative delivered across the company over eight days.
By the end of the Summit, each participant was equipped with a fresh perspective on leadership, and with skills, tools, and a common language with which to create contagious conversations within the rest of the organization.
