WOA Webinar: Leadership Is a Choice...and Everyone's Opportunity (afternoon session)

Leadership Is a Choice...and Everyone's Opportunity

Too often we are taught that leaders are either born or made. Or, that leadership is a function of title, position, responsibility, or whether or not you manage a team. When, in fact, neither of these are true. You see, you have an opportunity to lead from right where you currently are at … and it starts with understanding and learning how to lead yourself first.

In this interactive and highly energized workshop, Candy will help you redefine what leadership truly means. She will, not only, disrupt what the definition of leadership is, she will also share tools with you on how you can activate your own capacity and ability to lead by shifting your mindset, implementing new frameworks, engaging in courageous conversations, and holding yourself to a higher level of accountability.

Whether you find yourself interacting with others in virtual environments and not being able to be face-to-face with people, or you have an individual contributor role versus one of managing a team, you can start leading right now, right where you are at. Because leadership really is everyone’s opportunity!

This webinar is sponsored by Delta.
