biz.Exchange: Putting the (Human) Leader Back into Leadership Development

biz.Exchange: Putting the (Human) Leader Back into Leadership Development

Wednesday, January 25, 2023 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EST)



Most leadership development programs focus on developing leaders’ skillsets and knowledge bases – and for good reason. Things like displaying emotional intelligence, managing efficient projects, and knowing how to motivate and engage others are important components of effective leadership. But they’re also the wrong place to start.

At its heart, leadership is a fundamentally human activity- and it follows that the most effective leadership development should start with the leader in mind.

Join Greater Rochester Chamber's biz.Exchange professional development interactive session where leadership coach and professor Dr. Mike Palanski will shows us what can happen when leaders focus on themselves first as human beings. We will begin by exploring how we can develop our sense of purpose and identity as leaders. Then Mike will lead us through an exercise designed to help us name, define, and bring to life our core values.

You will learn:

  • A definition of our core values
  • A decision-making tool you can immediately implement
  • A valuable foundation for ongoing leader development
