    Description: 
    Successful leaders need to be self-aware; they need to know what they need, what energizes them and how they can expand their well-being.  This webinar will focus on how self-aware acquisition leaders can leverage self-care practices to reduce stress, address the feeling of being overwhelmed and even start to break the cycle of perfectionism.

    This presentation will cover the concept of self-awareness and provide a common definition of self-care from the perspective of a professional environment.

     

    Who should attend:
    If you are interested in gaining a better understanding what you can do to improve your well-being while gaining a better understanding of how self-care can improve our performance in the acquisition workforce and our ability to lead.



    The Leading Acquisition Series:
    Developed by the DAU Leadership Learning Center, this series, on the first Wednesday of each month (On Tuesday in December, no Webcast in January), 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.
