Event Details

Anyone who has ever heard me speak about leadership has heard me say that we need to be conscious of “how we show up.” In addition to the leadership competencies that help us succeed, we also have to be aware of how we’re perceived by those who experience us. Yes, leadership requires more of us than we often expect or even acknowledge. The best leaders are willing to let themselves be seen and understood by others. They don’t pretend to be bulletproof and they’re not willing to compromise who they are for the sake of what they do. Effective leaders are not only approachable, they’re transparent, and that’s difficult for many of us. Please join us as we discuss transparency in leadership and why it’s so critically important!
