Leading Without Authority

Staff Development Breakout Session - Thursday, 1:30 - 2:15 PM Central - Room 1

Here is the big question--How do we get others to embrace and act on our ideas because they want to, not because they are told to?

You don't need to have a team of people working directly for you to develop and exercise leadership skills. 

Leading without Authority is a new style of leadership. You don't need to sit in a class for this one. You can develop the skills you need to influence others by observing others and then growing your own interpersonal skills based on what you observe.

This talk covers strategies to develop the emerging leader within yourself including thinking about what to observe and some skills that will benefit you as you develop your inner leader such as active listening, questioning, having a positive mindset, developing your emotional intelligence skills, and seeking positive outcomes for your team or organization. Then, it's up to YOU!
