There is so much leadership advice in the world that it can quickly lead to "paralysis by analysis" of trying to remember the hundred things you're supposed to do at any given moment. But what if that list were distilled to the seven critical challenges that determine whether any leader succeeds or fails in their role, with a playbook for mastering those challenges?

Drawing on insights from his new book, The CEO Test, which he wrote with former Amgen CEO Kevin Sharer, Adam Bryant presents an informative and enlightening keynote around the key challenges of leadership, including developing a simple plan for strategy, building teams that are true teams, driving transformation, and mastering the inner game of leadership.

Bryant, who has conducted in-depth interviews on leadership with more than 600 CEOs, shares compelling stories, memorable quotes, and practical tips and tools in an engaging style that will arm leaders at all levels with clear strategies to elevate their teams and drive results.

Adam Bryant joined Merryck & Co., an executive mentoring firm, as managing director in 2017 after a 30-year career in journalism, including 18 years at The New York Times. In addition to his many roles there as a reporter and editor, he created the weekly "Corner Office" column in 2009, and interviewed 525 CEOs and other leaders over a decade. He has written three books based on the themes that emerged from those interviews, including his latest: THE CEO TEST: Master the Challenges that Make or Break All Leaders, published by Harvard Business Review Press. Since joining Merryck, he has started popular interview series on LinkedIn with board directors, CEOs and CHROs, and he writes a monthly column on leadership for Strategy+Business magazine. Adam also is the senior adviser to the Reuben Mark Initiative for Organizational Character and Leadership at Columbia University.
