Instead of using SqlDataReader you can use DataTable by filling it through SqlDataAdapter and set DataTable as the DataSource of the DataGrid.
try
           {
               con.Open();
               SqlCommand com = new SqlCommand("spx_leadershipAnalysis", con);
               com.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(com);
DataTable tbl = new DataTable();
adapter.Fill(tbl);
DataGrid1.DataSource=tbl;
DataGrid1.DataBind();
               //rdr = com.ExecuteReader();

               //while (rdr.Read())
               //{
                   //Response.Write(rdr["Name"]);
                   
               //} 

               //Response.Write(rdr);
               //con.Close();
//You don't need to explicitly close the connection when using //SqlDataAdapter coz it will close the connection after it fills //the DataTable
           }
           catch (Exception ex)
           {
               Response.Write(ex.Message);
               con.Close();
           }
