As the world around us changes, leaders’ self-awareness becomes even more important. In this interactive session, the authors of The Leadership Continuum, Bill Heiden and Cathleen Swody, will discuss critical ways leaders can understand their natural tendencies and identify how to adjust their leadership in different situations successfully. Bill and Cathleen will share insights to help aspiring leaders build on their strengths and help experienced leaders reflect and “tune up.” This session will include an overview of 7 key leadership facets, discussion with your colleagues about handling different real-life scenarios, Q&A and Breakout Sessions.
