01/19/2022 Whole and Intentional Leader Development
What does it mean to bring our whole selves to work? How can we more thoughtfully invest in the growth of the people around us? At the same time, how can we more intentionally and effectively pursue our own personal growth as leaders?
Today most executive leaders will tell you that building culture and investing in people are at the top of their strategic priorities. Over the last two years, these topics have become critical for leaders in a competitive labor market where culture and talent are the winning edge.
In this session, Dr. Rob McKenna and Dr. Daniel Hallak from WiLD Leaders Inc., will lead an interactive conversation on how to architect the culture you want and how to invest in the whole and intentional development of people and leaders. You'll leave equipped to engage, attract, and develop the right people through the right culture and systems for investing in people. Plus, you'll learn about The Certificate in Whole Leader Development, a new self-paced certificate program offered by The Association and developed by WiLD Leaders.
