Workshops

One aspect of the MYLead conference is interactive workshops on topics of greatest interest to our conference participants.  Workshops we are considering this year are listed below.  The final roster of workshops will be dependent on interest shown in the different workshops through pre-conference registration:

Leadership Styles

Have you noticed that every leader is a bit different?  Each of us relies on a set of values that help determine who we are and how we will lead.   If you want to know more about your leadership style and how to best communicate with others who have a style different than yours, we encourage you to join this session.  You will walk away with a foundational understanding of the 4 styles of leadership and how to put your best foot forward when forming and participating in teams.

Goal Setting

Setting goals is a foundational skill for every strong leader.  As such, we need to know how to set SMART goals that drive us toward the outcomes we want, without setting us up to experience too many bumps along the road.  If you want to learn how to set goals that help move you (and your groups/teams) forward quickly and effectively, we encourage you to select this session. As a bonus, you will get to learn how MYLead alum have employed this very skill, and see what tremendous accomplishments they have achieved.

Motivating others

Are you passionate about an organization, position, or future career? This session will provide you with tools and skills to turn this passion into the ability to motivate people you need to assist you in whatever endeavors you are currently a part of or may to choose to pursue in the future!  We encourage you to join this session if you want to discover your own “Why” and learn how to use it as a powerful motivator to enroll others in your success.

Women In Leadership

Do you struggle with being a woman in leadership? Do you have a woman in your life who struggles with leadership? Through this workshop, you will learn different ways for women to effectively lead and change the world around you. *All Genders Welcome in Workshop*

Emotional Intelligence

Do you sometimes feel disconnected, even though you are surrounded by people?  Or maybe you see a friend or loved one slipping away because they are going through something difficult.  Emotions are powerful.

Come to this workshop to discover how to turn your experiences into powerful tools that can strengthen the way you connect and communicate with others.

The Big Three Legacies are professional, personal, and hero. Together, we will discover how these three legacies fit into your life and how to improve them.

Diversity
