Vision Session I - Courageous Leadership: Walking Your Talk from Wherever You Are

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We are experiencing significant shifts in leadership, at national and local levels, and within and across our professional communities. As the opinions swing about style and characteristics of leaders, there are some constants. We need leaders at every level of our organizations, including people who do not see themselves in these roles. Leaders must be culturally competent, able to engage and create space for new voices. And leaders must be brave. You are often standing, taking action in the service of a greater good. This session is for leaders, all of us, who are taking courageous action in the service of shared values. It will inspire you to act, remind you about your why, and provide practical steps for leading from wherever you are.
