December 17, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm MSTsold out
There’s lots of talk about leadership and learning in our workplace. Yet, leaders’ relationship with learning remains troubled by terminology, safety, and fear. In this participatory session led by Bailey Sousa & Alex Clark, explore the place and value of true learning in your own leadership. Engage with research on why learning matters so much in leadership, and how to be a better leader, by being a better learner.
