Be a more effective leader
Everyone has past experiences we bring with us when we first enter the workforce. Kirk Berry, BS '05, believes some of these past experiences make us who we are as individuals & there are some characteristics we develop instinctively. Kirk has learned the skills & ability it takes to be recognized as a leader are not the only traits required to lead. Which poses the question - Are you your management style? He led his team in a similar way he had previously experienced before entering the workforce. The positive skill sets he had to help him advance professionally are not the same skills of others. Kirk learned he could not lead with that same level of expectation. Over the last few years Kirk has focused on personal professional development so he can lead & manage others more effectively. During this webinar, Kirk will share his leadership journey to motivate you to reflect on your own personal leadership style & determine ways you can be more effective as a leader.
