Session Description
Leadership is art and science; this interactive and fast-paced session explores both. The course begins with a thought-provoking discussion about leadership and the many attributes associated with effective leadership. We also explore six primary leadership styles that can be used to help the work of the team move forward. And while leadership is critical, a deep understanding of followership is essential to the success of any manager. This session will help you be more intentional, and achieve results for your team and ultimately, your organization.
