Speaker: Brian "Luke" Seaward, Ph.D
Date: May 23, 2017 Time: 8:30am - 11:00am Location: HEC's Kahili Room
What does it take to be a great leader in this day and age? Whether you run a for profit or a non-profit organization, regardless of your job title, occupation, or passion in life, we all need to step up to the plate and exhibit the characteristics of great leadership!
What derails leadership? In a word, stress. People who rule from anger or fear prove to be the epitome of horrible leaders and business managers and this negative vibration spreads through the entire workforce. While there is no magic formula for who or what makes a great leader, there are specific attributes that are regarded as vital to make things happen well.
This presentation highlights the essential qualities of great leadership including: integrity, vision, perspective, communication, collaboration and many more. After the completion of the session, participants will be able to:
Identify two factors that detract from leadership excellence
Describe five qualities essential for all people in a position of leadership
Former Good Morning America host, Joan Lunden says, “Luke’s words have touched my life profoundly and helped me to find grace and dignity, the patience and compassion needed to navigate my ever-changing course. They have helped me understand that it is the way I choose to see the world that I will create the world I see.”
