Handout: Leading from Where You Are (PDF)

Leadership is an necessary skill in all types of work in today’s world. Yet, many people think that they aren’t leaders for a variety of reasons. You may be surprised to learn that leadership is something that ALL of us can learn and in which ALL of us can become skilled.

We urge you to join co-presenters Sharon Morris and Becky Russell on Tuesday, April 24th from 3:30 – 4:30 MST for our upcoming webinar “Leading From Where You Are: Leadership CAN be Learned.” In this very interactive webinar (part of our “Promising Practice in Session” series), you will identify behaviors of effective leaders so that you can try them in your work. You’ll also identify your leadership strengths and walk away with strategies to grow yourself and others in leadership behaviors.
