Networking Event: Developing Leadership Through Authentic Followership Breakfast

Despite the fact that followership is often deemed less important than leadership, organizations are only effective if they have both excellent leaders and engaged followers.  In fact, in most organizations, people often are both leaders and followers concurrently. We all would benefit to giving some thought on how to influence and increase leadership through becoming better followers. Improving followership assists individuals in the development of key leadership skills. You will leave this session challenged to increase your influence at your workplace through becoming a more authentic engaged follower.
