Interdisciplinary ThinkingWhether you’re new to the workforce, new to your field, or taking on a brand new role, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with the minutiae of your job and lose sight of the bigger picture. The skills and habits we associate with great leadership can serve as a framework to infuse your work with purpose, vision, and the ability to inspire others.

In this workshop, we’ll explore how to determine your unique leadership style, how to recognize when you most naturally put it into practice, and how to leverage it for your future success. We will also discuss how these same principles of self-exploration can be used to better understand your colleagues or supervisees and determine how to work together and lead as a team. Finally, we’ll share resources and exercises that allow you to dive deeper into some of these areas on your own.

Key Takeaways from this Webinar:

  • The difference between “managing” and “leading”
  • How to recognize and use your strengths to your advantage at work
  • Leadership skills and habits that allow you to best leverage your strengths
  • Navigating team dynamics as either a colleague or a manager
