Leadership "Superpowers" for PR Pros at the 2018 Western District Conference
As leaders in the public relations industry, we possess more power than we think. Sometimes, our power comes from position, title, circumstances or information. Other times, power derives from more personal sources, such as our expertise, our vision or unique characteristics. How can we recognize our own sources of leadership power and channel them for good? Which powers work for which situations? And what distinctive leadership qualities are required to lead the public relations industry bravely and boldly into the future?
Join fellow PR pros for a Western District pre-conference session on April 11 with Matt West, executive coach and global head of training and facilitation for Golin, to talk leadership and explore ways to reignite your power to engage, motivate and inspire.
