Leadership Essentials - August 7-8, 2019
Good leadership is essential to successful organizations. This two-part session will cover the traits, behaviors, and actions of a good leader by delving into the theories of leadership and having the participants assess their own leadership styles and traits. The session will also examine theories of motivation, the outcome of which is to develop within each learner an awareness of what truly motivates the people in their workplace. Additionally, participants will also take the Leadership Practices Inventory® (LPI) 360-degree assessment instrument, which is the best-selling and most trusted leadership tool of its generation. Developed by Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, the LPI approaches leadership as a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors. This tool helps individuals and organizations measure their leadership competencies, while guiding them through the process of applying Kouzes and Posner's acclaimed Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership Model to real-life organizational challenges.
