Authentic leadership is sometimes an elusive concept. Most writers suggest that it is something that has to be discovered and nurtured, rather than forced and coerced. But how can this be done?

In this event, we will attempt to address this question in very practical, tangible terms. Jill Weaver, an experienced leader, organization development (OD) consultant, coach, trainer, and recruiter, will lead us in a workshop that explores how to build a culture of authenticity that enables engagement and a high level of leadership at all levels. She will discuss the importance of vulnerability as a key character trait that serves as a gateway to authenticity. Then, she will facilitate exercises and a dialogue to demonstrate the kinds of activities that help build an environment of authenticity.

This event should be attractive to anyone who has an interest in creating genuine, long-lasting employee engagement.
