May 2021 Quarterly Breakfast Meeting

Subject: The Benefits of Understanding Your Leadership Style

As we deliver value in the new normal by adjusting to virtual interactions in lieu of face-to-face communication, knowledge and demonstration of positive leadership styles is important. How leaders are viewed can influence the outcomes of objectives and goals set forth. Leadership vision transforms into action, if accepted by the followers or team members. It is imperative that one understands the leadership style that is demonstrated to gain maximum positive results. Furthering the understanding of the influence a leader has on followers or team members, provides the guidelines for effective positive leadership.
