Breakfast Briefing: May the Leadership Force Be with You: Leadership Lessons from Star Wars

Thursday, August 6 at 7:30 AM

View Schedule

Sure, the Star Wars universe is a fictional world with incredible action, but we can draw correlations to our everyday work life and apply the lessons learned. Luke Skywalker spent a lot of time in the swamp learning how to use the force – leadership is like the force. It's a skill that we can learn by taking classes, reflecting, seeking feedback from others, mentoring, and, of course, doing. In this session, we'll explore:
• Mastering the self
• Knowing who can help you and asking for help when needed
• How projects and rollouts can be like the Death Star
• What the Leadership Dark Side is and how to avoid it
• Finding and using the "Leadership Force"

This is the session you are looking for! It will allow you to transition from a galaxy far, far away to an office close, close to your workplace.
