    Anyone can learn to become a stronger leader. Organizations that have leaders at all levels are most effective. These are the leadership truths that our speaker, David Spungin, initially learned while serving as a U.S. Army officer in combat and again validated later as a manager in corporate America. David's presentation focuses on what the title “leader” really means and practical ways one can improve their leadership ability. Specifically, this discussion will focus on increasing decisiveness in environments of complexity and creating a culture of accountability.

    Learning Objectives:

    After participating in this workshop, participants will be able to:

    • Explain basic leadership development theories and applications to include a new, more pragmatic definition of leadership to help guide daily actions
    • Provide coaching to managers and executives regarding key leader behaviors that enable individual and team success
    • Explain why the leader behaviors of decisiveness and accountability are imperative to leadership training program development
