Habitudes—Images That Form Leadership Habits and Attitudes: The Art of Leading Others.

How do you effectively cast a compelling vision? How to you help faculty stay focused? How to you plan a strategy? How do you empower staff? This session will provide practical principles that can transfer to any campus and any team, taught with the power of an image and a conversation. The Habitudes will furnish a leadership language for your people.
