Learning Objectives:

Articulate how our own personal growth relates to organizational success

Articulate how storytelling can make leaders more effective

Define vulnerability-based trust and understand how it impacts the development of organizational culture and transformational leadership

Articulate specific disciplines that create the foundation of great organizations

How do we assist in developing the next generation of leaders? How does our ability as leaders to engage in an authentic, accountable, empowered, courageous, and compassionate manner affect our organizations, strategic partners, and our industry as a whole? How does our own personal growth work translate into a more balanced approach to work, family, and health and positively impact the lives of those we serve and make us more effective leaders? How does the emotional health of you and your staff impact your outcomes and your bottom line?

In this interactive and engaging presentation, we will discuss and demonstrate the connection between vulnerability-based trust, honesty, transparency, and organizational health. We will discuss the necessity of developing self to develop the leader. To get there, we will explore the common challenges that hold us back, and how our formative experiences as people play out in the workforce, and ways in which our own self-doubt and fears can restrict our ability as leaders to make brave choices.
