Seminar: Insights into Modern Leadership - The Art of Influence and Persuasion
Good leadership is a fascinating concept, often seen as a blend of specific characteristics, behaviours, and skills that inspire and motivate individuals or groups to achieve a shared vision or goal. While good leaders’ precise qualities and attributes may vary based on cultural, organizational, or situational contexts, several core elements are commonly recognized for effective leadership.
Join us in this in-person leadership seminar to explore what makes a good leader, and you will see that leadership is not merely a title or role, but a journey of storytelling, influence, and persuasion. Coffee and snack will be provided during the event.
