Session 3: What is your leadership style
From Mahatma Gandhi to Winston Churchill to Martin Luther King, there are as many leadership styles as there are leaders. Fortunately, businesspeople and psychologists have developed useful and simple ways to describe the main styles of leadership, and these can help leaders and aspiring leaders understand how to best approach leadership.
So, whether you manage a team at work, run a business, or lead a major corporation, which approach is best? Understanding leadership styles and their impact can help you develop your own personal leadership style and help you become a more effective leader.
Using cutting edge research and sharing real life case studies, Jennifer will explore the different leadership styles and how to switch between styles, according to the people you lead and the work that needs to be done.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
