About this Event

What: Leaders are expected to display confidence and certainty. That is, they believe in themselves and trust their decisions as well as the people responsible for implementing them. But what happens when stakeholders confidence in their leaders is in crisis? Let’s discuss the factors associated with leadership confidence, the degree to which humanistic principles influence or shape the perception of leadership confidence, and what are the humanistic practices to consider when uncertain confidence in your leadership is creating organizational and managerial chaos.

Quick reminder – Jennifer Hancock’s new book: Applied Humanism is out.  The reviews on it have been good.

I just finished reading, Applied Humanism. I loved its clarity and straightforwardness. In many ways the writing is deceptively simple: the concepts and their applications are universal in appeal yet subtle in their implications for living and working in today’s world. ~Dr. C. Lazlo, Prof. of Organizational Behavior, Casse Western Reserve University
