Teaching to Lead – The Power of Engagement and Inspiration

Receiving a promotion is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the knowledge needed to be an effective leader. Many have been given the title, but not the tools to be successful when in charge of others.

When becoming a leader, the performance of the team becomes paramount in measuring your own success. We will learn how to correctly assess, motivate, and inspire your workgroups. During this session, Stephane McShane and session attendees will:

  • Discuss why leadership plays such a key role in firm and association success
  • Define how to evaluate performance and how collaboration here is key
  • Outline a successful leadership model with its key components
  • Provide information on how to evaluate people and positions to ensure alignment
  • Describe what it means to be an inspirational leader
