Leadership Styles and Skills

Faculty - Robin Johnson

Effective leadership is a key goal for many business practitioners. One challenge that most leaders face is an over-reliance on one or two core leadership styles that emerge from (or are constrained by) their personality. In uncertain times, however, it is even more critical that leaders identify and learn how to broaden their leadership style portfolio so that they have the capacity to deliver added value and ensure strategic success in any complex situation. The objective of this session is to help you develop an understanding of your own strengths as a leader, evaluate how you might successfully use other leadership styles, and consider how to use this knowledge to identify specific actions you can take that will enhance the effectiveness of your leadership.
