Leading With Humility

@ 12:30 pm ET
  • Event Recording


    DESCRIPTION: 

    Do you demonstrate humility in your workplace?  Humility is the capacity to exhibit personal modesty that comes from understanding our place in the larger order of things. It is also a key ingredient in developing strong relationships. As humans, we are naturally inclined to think our ideas are the best. But this becomes an issue when it keeps someone else from expressing their thoughts or allowing us to reap the benefits of team collaboration. Key to practicing humility is recognizing and admitting there are things we don't know.  This event will help you make the connection between humility and why it is such an important virtue to cultivate for leaders at all levels.

     

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
    Anyone wanting to add specific best practices for how they can better show humility in the workplace should definitely attend this webcast.

    The Leading Acquisition Series:
    This Series, on the first Wednesday of each month, will help you grow as an acquisition leader.  Building team success; working effectively through others; or spanning team, functional, and organizational boundaries—all will be covered.  DAU's faculty will share the latest thinking on what it means to lead, with practical defense acquisition examples and suggestions on how to apply what you learn at work.  Time in each session will be set aside to answer your questions.

    Ivan Teper, Knowledge Manager, DSMC, DAU
