Values-Based Leadership: Leading from the Heart

Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at 12:00 PM until 1:00 PMCentral Daylight Time

Have you ever experienced a situation at work that could have resulted in a better outcome if handled with compassion? Often times the data-driven world of business doesn’t leave room for vulnerability and authenticity. In today’s society, an effective leader is someone who is able to lean on their value system to develop relationships both inside and outside their organization. A values-based leader learns to leverage the core values of their organization as well as their own personal values to build stronger bonds, connect with purpose and drive performance. This type of leadership provides the foundation for employees, managers and the company as a whole to lean in and reflect on their values in every decision they make. Join us for an insightful discussion with Dorri McWhorter to contemplate the meaning of “values-based leadership” and bring heart into the workplace.

This webinar is appropriate for:
  • Individuals interested in building their leadership skills
  • Managers wanting to build compassion into their leadership style
  • Anyone wishing to learn more about creating a world where everyone is valued
By the end of the webinar you will:
  • Understand the meaning of “values-based leadership” and its relationship to your environment 
  • Learn the 5 “C’s” of work—contribution, creativity, collaboration, community and connection 
  • Find out how organizations benefit from incorporating values into their community
  • Acquire strategies to demonstrate values-based leadership
