Topic: The Science of Leadership and Team Development
Speaker: Kathleen Gallanar


The Science of Leadership and Team Development

A person's capability to develop leadership potential and contribute effectively on teams lies in both genetic and learned traits. This presentation will uncover the six genetic and eleven learned traits that impact leadership potential. We'll review an optimal balance of the traits as they relate to key behavioral models such as: risk profile, interpersonal skills and listening.

The presentation will challenge participant's thinking as we consider how self-deception impacts one's ability to accurately determine potential and performance. As well, we'll discuss how the genetic and learned traits impact team performance. We'll review guidelines for building and sustaining high performing teams.

The presentation will provide a three step approach for life long development and success; Learn, Grow, Lead.
