Leadership Roles: Thursday, June 10, 8-11:30 am

Regardless of industry, every leader is required to perform 4 roles to be effective. Unfortunately, most leaders are good at 2 roles, not so good at 1 role, and unaware of the 4th role. Clarify the 4 roles, assess your skills, and be prepared to fulfill all 4 roles and lead your team to success.
