Conquering the Leadership Challenge – Hosted by Smith County CSCD
August 20-21, 2020 Training Site: 304 East Ferguson Street, Tyler, TX
This 2-day workshop, which is based upon the research of James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner, is about how leaders mobilize others to want to get extraordinary things done in organizations. It’s about practices leaders use to transform values into action, visions into realities, obstacles into innovations, separateness into solidarity, and risks into rewards. It’s about leadership that makes a positive difference in the work-place and creates the climate in which people turn challenging opportunities into remarkable successes.
