Folks like to argue about whether leaders are born or made. This is a false choice. Yes, the combo of your DNA and experience contribute to your success as a leader. Leadership is also self-conscious. Successful leaders never stop learning and growing, acquiring new skills, honing talents, and looking for a way to harness all their traits to make a positive difference for their organizations. Leaders are humans who never forget they can be wrong, make mistakes, and take the wrong path. Leaders differentiate themselves by the way they learn from every situation, adversity or opportunity.
Leading any organization is fraught with peril from internal and external sources. You are under enormous pressure and the direction, success, and survival rest on your shoulders. People look to you for leadership and challenge your leadership. If you thrive in this environment, if you are driven to bring your organization to greater success, if you believe this takes an entire team pulling in the same direction, you have the essential starting ingredients for successful leadership. This program provides case studies of successful leaders in many different fields, whose track records demonstrate the leadership essentials you want to hone. If you are committed to continuous growth, self-examination, and creating a positive environment for your team and organization, you are ready to make these lessons part of your own vision, mission, and values.
