Session Description

What is leadership really? Is it simply about power over people and getting results? And what about management? Isn’t that just telling people what to do and holding them accountable to it? In this fundamental training, participants will explore these questions by defining leadership and management, understanding where they fit in, and deciding who they want to be in both contexts — for the purpose of developing themselves, their teams, and their organization.
