Developing Leader Character Workshop

July 24-25, 2017 - Two Day Workshop - Significant discount of 55% off to ATD members.  Apply the code: AASAVE55 at purchase and the discount will automatically apply

This workshop focuses on the element of leadership that has largely been neglected in leadership development: Character. Although character is often thought to be a subjective construct, this workshop argues otherwise. We will discuss the concrete behaviors associated with different eleven character dimensions (accountability, drive, collaboration, courage, justice, temperance, humility, humanity, integrity, transcendence, and judgement), and illustrate how these behaviors can be developed, how character can be strengthened, and how it leads to improved decision making and judgement.
