The essence of being an effective leader entails inspiring others to do more, to be more, and to take themselves and the organization to the next level of performance and achievement. Innovation is one of the most critical elements of success as a leader; the ability to create an environment where everyone feels empowered to challenge the status quo will often mean the difference between success and failure.
Creating a culture of innovation is hard, and it doesn’t happen overnight. But there are tried-and-true approaches that will help leaders at all levels of an organization foster the right environment and overcome obstacles to successful transformation. Whether you are new to your role as a leader, or you’ve been tasked to steward significant change in your organization, the principles and strategies discussed in this session will help you inspire those around you and move collectively toward realization of a shared vision.

"Challenge the Process" is essential for leaders to keep organizations moving and growing. It’s thinking critically about how your organization operates, celebrating what’s working well, and recognizing what needs to be changed. This can be difficult. Every challenge confronts someone’s great idea. Challenging the process requires knowing how to hold difficult conversations.
In this section, participants will learn about emotional intelligence and how they can frame conversations in a way that promotes transparency through authenticity. This leads us to lead in a healthy, positive way resulting in leadership growth and organizational development.

An effective leader fosters collaboration and builds spirited teams. By enabling others to act, your team is not dependent on you but rather a good representation of you. Leaders use their talents to the fullest developing a team that is built on trust and mutual respect through open communication channels. In doing this, leaders facilitate greater success for their teams.
Develop a collaborative approach and style to elicit a highly engaged, participatory, and communicative team environment, which is paramount to every leader’s success. Through scenarios, discussions, and self-reflection, explore strategies to enable others to act—even when it doesn’t seem easy or isn’t the natural default.

The verb "team" means to come together as one in pursuit of a common goal. As leaders, it is imperative to recognize both the collective win and individual wins to demonstrate how efforts impact a shared vision. Recognition ignites constituent engagement, motivation, and innovation. Effective leadership entails setting intentionality behind recognition and being self-aware of one’s own threshold related to empathy, respect, and vulnerability.
