In this era of rapid innovation and change, traditional approaches to leadership and development are no longer sufficient. The key to personal development and leadership success is to fully understand how to apply your greatest talents and strengths in your everyday life. A person’s talents—those thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that come naturally—are the source of his or her true potential and power.

Kirk Young's presentation will help attendees explore these personal leadership strengths and talents, and their leadership motives and values. You'll leave this session with a deeper understanding of your personal leadership style, which you can incorporate in a personal leadership development plan.
