RISD LEADS - RISD LEADS 101
What is a leader? How do I develop as one? In this session, participants will explore their own personal experiences and assumptions around leadership to uncover the traits they find both effective and detrimental when trying to become a successful leader. Through an overview of contemporary research on the topic, participants will discuss identified styles of leadership and how each might be appropriately implemented to get results in a variety of contexts. Individuals will then reflect on their own style and potential as a leader, building a habit of self awareness that will help them achieve their own vision of success. The session will conclude with an overview of the RISD LEADS program and a description of how it can help you achieve success during your individual development as you build up your personal leadership toolkit.
