Leadership Lab (Dec 15, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM)

STARS Credits: 2

Leadership is not a skill that you are born with, or one that inherently manifests itself. It is something that happens after years of struggle, discipline, and breakthroughs. A quick search on Amazon reveals over 190,000 titles about leadership, telling readers the specific methods that others have used in their organizations. Millions of these books are sold every year. However, no manual can give you the experience you need that is necessary to be a successful leader. 

The Leadership Lab allows you to work on specific skills of leadership, learning what works for you as an individual, and understanding your unique style. The experiential learning in this workshop gives participants the physical experience of trying each skill, and the ability to replicate that in their daily practice. It is a safe place to experiment, find results, make conclusions, and test theorem. The workshop also encourages collaboration between participants, creating a network of shared knowledge between like-minded peers. 

The session is aimed at those who are experiencing change in their organization, those who want to be a catalyst for change, and those who want to use change to help their organization evolve.

Participants will practice:

  • Interpersonal communications
  • Committing to action
  • Ensuring follow through
  • Understanding how to tell an effective story to inspire others
