Leadership can have many forms and be described in various ways. However, there really isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” style that leaders should adhere to in all situations, or with all people. Just like our communication style, we should learn to “flex” our leadership styles to better encourage and motivate those we lead. Find this and other workshops on the training calendar.
The University of Oklahoma is dedicated to continuing the growth of each faculty and staff member. The Leadership and Organizational Development (L&OD) team has recently created a new program to help support future leaders: OU’s New Leader Development program is created to educate and inspire new leaders within the OU community.
The New Leader Development program will be in a virtual format and will offer several groups, to ensure there is a convenient time and day for everyone who is interested. There is a prescribed course of learning materials, along with a set of electives that will allow each participant to tailor the program to fit their situation.
Change Management, Communication, Coaching, Collaboration, Conflict Resolution, Delegation, Emotional Intelligence, Employee Engagement, Inclusion, Trust, Stress Management, Team Building, Time Management, and Relationship Building/Collaboration.
