Mastering your Personal Leadership Skills

September 29, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT

Certificate Program: Leadership & Supervision, Executive Leadership


Leadership is a skill that is developed at all levels within your career. While most people associate leadership with leading others, the most effective leaders start with a clear understanding of how to lead themselves. Having an understanding of your own leadership competencies and motivators serves as the foundation of successful leadership. Identifying a personal leadership profile provides a starting point from which individuals can address challenging issues with effective self-awareness on a team, company, or industry level.
This session encourages participants to incorporate their values, vision, and leadership styles into their work to build confidence as high performing individuals and change-makers. Group discussions, small group activities, and individual reflections will lead to the formation of a personal leadership profile.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Articulate goals around personal and professional leadership
  • Reflect on the role of Vision and Values in leadership
  • Articulate 1-2 leadership challenges that might prevent goals from being achieved
  • Develop strategies to address those challenges

This workshop is best suited for: 

  • Identify a clearer career direction
  • Motivate themselves and others behind a single vision
  • Articulate their leadership style with greater confidence
  • Address challenges that prevent them from being effective leaders
