Exploring Core Values and Leadership Behaviors Necessary for Success
Who we are as leaders is defined by how we see ourselves, how others experience us, and what we value.  In this interactive session, participants will learn about different elements of leadership and do some introspection around their actual verses ideal self. By evaluating the current state and identifying gaps, individuals can develop action plans to be more effective leaders.  We will also explore personal core values as our values impact our thoughts, actions, and decisions.  Participants will leave with insight into strengths and developmental needs and will also have some work done toward identifying and defining core values.
