Write Your Leadership Philosophy Workshop

Wednesday, Nov. 13th 2013 at 12:30-1:30pm

Howard Gittis Student Center Room 223

As you learn and grow in your leadership development, it’s important to note your actions, thoughts and behaviors in relation to your leadership style. During this workshop, participants will learn four easy steps to writing your leadership philosophy. We will work to identify each participant’s values, uncover assumptions and understand the individual beliefs around leadership. Participants in the session will focus on writing a brief (one-half page) statement by the end of the hour.

This event is worth Five Leadership Diamond Points.
