Session 2: The High Impact Leader

Steve Martin Bio

1:00pm - 2:30pm

Leadership is more than having a vision and a plan. Leaders inspire and motivate. This requires leaders to go beyond just tactical problem solving and directing folks through day-to-day issues under the guise of leadership.

Research has shown empowerment, self-direction, and self-management lead to greater innovation, higher levels of commitment, and happier employees, which in turn impacts the bottom line.

This is not your typical leadership session.

We’ll cover two views of leadership, starting with Leadership Agility by Joiner & Josephs. You’ll evaluate where you are on a spectrum of their five levels of leadership. We’ll next apply those concepts to Kouzes & Posner’s Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership, leaving you with actions you can take when you return to your organization.

This is a completely interactive and immersive mini-workshop that will challenge the way you think about leadership.

Participants in this workshop will:

  • Understand which leadership style they gravitate towards
  • Learn tactical actions to increase their leadership capabilities at their organization.
