NORTH LA | Putting the Leader Back Into Leadership

Leadership

Meeting deadlines, making decisions, and gaining stakeholder buy-in are considered hallmarks of effective leadership, but are we missing something? A leader may excel at getting-the-job-done, and simultaneously overlook the impact that personal significance and positive engagement has on project success. Let’s think back on what originally drove you to become a leader in the first place, and more importantly remember that young emerging professionals are following in your footsteps.

This interactive presentation will inspire leaders to reenergize their personal significance by journeying through passion-defining moments that will activate personal mission, vision, value, purpose and an attitude of paying it forward through consequential difference-making.
