Session Description
Getting people to follow you as a leader is often a difficult proposition. Setting clear goals, motivating others, holding people accountable for outcomes and dealing with both “differently able” (read difficult) folks and those with differing expectations is not a walk in the park. Leadership talent is determined by the match between ones natural personality and the environment within which one must lead. What sort of personality makes the best leader? This question and others will be answered in this workshop. This workshop takes a practical look at how to be more versatile in dealing with all these variables so that you'll be considered a highly effective leader by both existing employees and the newer generation storming your beachhead.
