Morning Session Workshops: The Values-Based Academic Leader (VBAL)
In our opening session, we explore a series of questions, including the following: What does it mean to be a VBAL? What are the characteristics and motivations of a VBAL?
Starting with creating your values inventory, we explore the elements of a successful and fulfilling career. We focus on the balance between doing and accomplishing your academic goal without losing personal passion and what makes you feel fulfilled.
Afternoon Session Workshops: Knowing Your Leadership Characteristics and Values
Human communication, connecting to the needs of one’s constituents, and understanding what motivates people are key leadership elements espoused by a VBAL. We utilize case studies to explore leading through difficult situations.
