Participants will learn about:

  • The myths and misperceptions that make leadership seem like an exclusive club.
  • The 10 key differences between being a manager and being a leader.
  • Who’s eligible to be a leader and why that eligibility has nothing to do with job titles.
  • The importance of equipping your managers to also be leaders.
  • The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®, an evidence-based framework for leadership.

You’ll also receive a self-assessment tool to discover how frequently you’re leaning toward managing work vs. how often you lean toward leading people.

This session is eligible for HRCI and SHRM credit.
