When you hear someone in a leadership role referred to as a person of “strong character,” what comes to mind? We often think of character as something a leader has…or doesn’t. The fact is, character is not ONE thing, and it’s not a fixed trait. It’s a combination of dozens of behavior patterns, and each one can be developed or strengthened over time. 

In this session, you will learn: 
  • Why character is essential for effective leadership 
  • Tips for strengthening a character skill that most leaders struggle with 
  • How to use communication skills + character skills to increase your emotional intelligence 
  • The roles of coaching and practice in making changes in behavior that stick 
You’ll want to attend this session if you’re: 
  • involved in developing leaders within your organization 
  • a coach, consultant, or training company providing services to clients around leadership development 
  • a leader yourself who wants to strengthen skills around communication and character
