The Elements of Personal Leadership
When we hear the word “leadership” we generally think about leading others, but what about leading ourselves? Developing a sense of good personal leadership enables us to do for ourselves what good leaders do for others, such as working towards a goal, creating a culture of kind encouragement, and ensuring that the team is all pulling in the same direction.
While it might seem odd to think of yourself as a team – just consider how conflicted you actually are. Do you want to stay in bed or go to the gym? Are you tempted to do the easy thing instead of the right thing? And how do you even know what the right thing is? In this short talk, Dr. Aaron Balick will draw on a variety of models, from psychoanalysis to mindfulness that can help you better understand how to engage and improve your own personal leadership.
Participants will get:
Models from emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and clinical psychology that can be directly applied to personal and professional life.
Awareness of cutting edge research in the use of these models.
A short experience of how these models work in real life.
Opportunities for questions and discussion.
