Authentic Leadership: Why Being Yourself is More Important than Being the Boss

20-year-header-graphic-cbaPlease forgive the shameless self-promotion, however I want to share an upcoming webinar that I will be hosting for the University of Pittsburgh’s College of Business Administration (CBA).  I am honored to have an opportunity to be a part of Pitt CBA’s 20th Anniversary Webinar Series.   As a member of the very first freshman class (and the very first graduating class) of the College of Business Administration at Pitt, my career has been greatly influenced by those leadership lessons taught during my time at Pitt.

Join me on Wednesday, November 4th at Noon ET / 9 AM PT for “Authentic Leadership: Why Being Yourself is More Important Than Being the Boss”.   (Register via the Pitt Business WebEx site today.)

In this webinar, I’m going to talk about my experiences of great leaders, and what I believe to be the four key characteristics of authentic leaders.  I will also share some of the best leadership lessons that I have learned over the past 20 years, with tools to help you become a stronger (and more authentic) leader.

In the past few years, she's focused on enhancing policyIQ's offering as a Conflict Minerals and Anti-Corruption tool.
