PLAN Workshop: Understanding and Utilizing Your Leadership Style

Description. Effective leadership is an important quality for any graduate student, regardless of career path or position. Understanding your leadership style not only gives you insight into your best approaches for success, but helps you better make decisions, work with others, and provide organizational vision. In this session, participants will complete a leadership styles assessment, work with others to understand the benefits and challenges of different styles, and develop a plan to make the best use of their leadership style. 

Learning Outcomes. As a result of this session, participants will be able to: 

1. Assess their approaches to leadership

2. Consider how to understand their approach to leadership

3. Identify strategies to build on strengths and manage the weaknesses of their leadership style

4. List next steps for becoming a better leader.
