Building Individual and Team Leadership - Unleashing Potential at all Levels

What makes a good leader?  The age old question – are leaders born or made?  The fact is leaders are found everywhere and at every level of an organization.  Leadership competencies and capabilities can be developed and achieved by all.  The focus of this discussion will include identifying practices, principles and behaviors that result in effective individual and team leadership creating an environment of trust and ultimately collaboration.  This will be an interactive dialogue where participants will be introduced to methodologies and processes that are essential aspects of team leadership including competency development and planning, action learning, coaching and mentoring.

This workshop will be lead by Rita Balian Allen.  She is President of Rita B.
