You may be trying to do everything the books tell you about how to be an effective leader. For example, everyone knows that a key leadership role is to promote a vision for the organization. But HOW you do that is important! You may think you are doing an effective job of promoting a vision, when in reality, you may be shooting yourself in the foot.
The focus of this session will be the impact of leadership behavior on organizational culture, based on the research conducted by Human Synergistics Inc., which has found that some ways of leading are much more effective than others.
Join Cathy and Amber for an invigorating discussion on this topic!
