Effective leaders possess a broad set of leadership skills and competencies – the science of leadership – and they know when, where, and under what conditions to use each – the art of leadership. Dr. Hannah will combine cutting-edge research with lessons-learned from his three decades of personal leadership experience, spanning from a front line to a strategic leader, to advance attendees’ capabilities and development as inspirational leaders. This seminar will cover various forms of leader style, power and influence, and focus on the more effective forms of transformational, inspirational, and authentic leadership behaviors. Attendees will explore a full range model of flexible leader behaviors and increase their understanding of how to best tailor their leadership to achieve desired effects. To aid self-awareness and development, participants will take various leadership self-assessments and will begin to create a personalized leader development plan with a format provided. The assessments and leader development plan will be tied to the seminar content and filled out and discussed throughout the day.
