  • Introduction

    According to contemporary thinking, leadership is an extension of self. A mixture of personality, behavior, values and emotions drives it. An individual (called a leader) has to influence other entities (including people, relationships and environments) to achieve personal and work-related goals. Building on this perspective, the main aim of this workshop is to uncover, through self-analyses, the leader within 'you'. Particularly, this workshop will focus on leadership styles, leadership behaviors, leadership and personality, leadership and communications, leadership and emotionality, leadership and team building, leadership and decision-making, to configure the leader within 'you'. In general, the workshop will help participants to explore and develop leadership talent and abilities to be successful in their career and beyond. Once participants have recognized and identified their leadership qualities, the workshop will share appropriate strategies and tactics that should enable polishing and further nurturing of the revealed potential. Thus, the prime objective of the workshop is to cover practical and applied aspects of leadership that should prepare participants, in terms of making them ready, for their present and future private, public and professional lives.
