Leadership begins with a look in the mirror.

Authentic leadership is more than a set of skills or techniques that you learn to apply in your job. It is something much deeper than that.  It starts with knowing yourself; it grows when you develop yourself through the pursuit of an authentic response to what makes you “you.”

In this workshop you will learn about two important aspects of what makes you who you are… your personality traits and your deep-seated cognitive habit patterns.

You will be asked to complete two online assessments prior to the start of the workshop. During the workshop, you will gain insight about your leadership qualities from what these assessments reveal to you about yourself.

 Vicki, a professor of Leadership and Management at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah, brings over twenty-five years of business and leadership experience to classrooms and executives throughout the United States. Her most recent research focuses on the role of mentorship and extreme environments on leadership effectiveness.
