Leadership: What Is It, Really?
Wednesday, February 12, 2020
4:00 PM - 6:15 PM
Please join the Washington Network Group when we meet with Anne Duffy, Personal Leadership Coach at The Right Duff Coaching, LLC, who will discuss with us "Leadership: What Is It, Really?"
Leadership: What is it, really? When you hear the word "Leadership," who do you think of?
Someone else? Or possibly yourself...?
In this highly interactive session, Anne will share with us a model that offers ways you can use leadership skills in your daily work life, whether or not you occupy a leading role at your company or organization. Many of these skills are transferable to your personal life, as well. The model of leadership that Anne uses and teaches is applicable at all levels of an organization -- It's not just for CEOs, Managing Directors, or other upper-level professionals, although it applies directly to them, as well.
During this session, Anne will review some of the key skills that all leaders embody and may use to their benefit:
• Listening skills;
• Having a vision for yourself and another person;
• Communicating that vision/goal.
Additionally, attendees will participate in a short "skills drill" session that will help them build upon what they already know; Participants will leave this event with new leadership skills including:
• Two new ideas for themselves on how to apply this leadership model;
• Real-life practice at building upon existing listening skills;
• Two strategies for how to communicate a vision / goal to colleagues and others in your organization.
