What you will learn:
One thing that we can all agree on is that change is always just one decision, one day and one situation away. But, even in the midst of change, it's still necessary for leaders to continue to lead. But how can that be done if leaders are faced with fear and uncertainty while leading themselves or even others?
That's why this course is an essential development opportunity for both self leaders and people leaders.
Upon completion of this Elective, participants will:
- Understand the feelings that come along with change and why they are happening
- Recognize and seize opportunities while change and fear are at play
- Understand how to involve others and take a community approach while dealing with fear and uncertainty
- Understand how to signal and role model authenticity for others around you and those that you are leading
- Understand how to embrace other leadership styles in the midst of fear and uncertainty
About the instructor:
I believe that everyone has leadership potential. Leadership isn’t just a skill that’s reserved for those in the c-suite. We all have the power to lead in our own unique ways across both social and professional settings. Sometimes we just need a little push in the right direction to get there. That’s why I wrote an entire book about it called Leader By Mistake: Becoming a Leader One Mistake at a Time, which shows how you too can find your inner leader by learning from your mistakes and homing in on the skills you already possess to lead confidently.
I live and breathe this leadership-for-all concept and my expertise is grounded in years of experience across a variety of organizations.
In addition to my work with Scarlet, I currently serve as the vice president of startup programming at AARP Innovation Labs, where I lead a team committed to finding the most promising startups world-wide and identifying how they can move their innovations forward through collaboration.
I also serve as a corporate board member at Plastipak Packaging on the Functional Leadership Development Committee.
While my professional experiences have been instrumental to my success and impact over the years, my hometown and education have been too. Born, raised, and educated in Detroit, I am a Warrior through and through. I proudly hold two degrees from Wayne State University—a Bachelor of Arts in public relations and Master of Education in instructional technology with specializations in interactive technologies and performance improvement.
I’m also a graduate of the Protocol School of Washington, where I focused on international etiquette & protocol, and hold a Six Sigma Green Belt certification in process improvement, which I use to help clients develop systems and processes that will allow them to reach their strategic planning and development goals. Outside of my professional and educational endeavors, I enjoy mentoring both young and seasoned leaders and serve as vice president for 12 Days DC Metro. I also love traveling, watching James Bond movies, and hitting the slopes during the winter for some snowboarding.
