Qualities of Leadership

Having strong leaders at every level of the business has never been as important as it is today. Leaders need to excel in leading others, implementing ideas, introducing change and driving long term initiatives in order to meet the challenges of the competitive marketplace and for organizations to achieve long-term success. The Qualities of Leadership workshop focuses on these important organizational needs by introducing the leadership values, principles, and characteristics central to successful leadership.

Participants in this cutting edge program examine leadership in two parts—the elements that come from “within” a leader and the characteristics that leaders emulate when interacting with others. This methodology helps participants develop sound and lasting leadership skills and abilities. Participants also take a closer look at their own leadership qualities and characteristics so they can identify leadership strengths that can be leveraged and strategies for addressing their opportunities for improvement. Leadership skills aren’t necessarily developed overnight, but the workshop gives leaders the foundation they need to launch their continued leadership learning journey and make a lasting impact on the organization.

Objectives and Outcomes

  • Understand the significant differences between leadership and management.

“A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but where they ought to be.”

~ Rosalynn Carter
