TOPIC: BA Jedi Master Leadership Academy: Learn how to lead with the BA Force
PRESENTER: Heather Mylan-Mains, CBAP®, Deputy VP Chapters IIBA®.
ABOUT THE TOPIC:
What makes a good leader? There are some people that we can’t wait to work with and others that we dread working with.
Do we always know why that is? There are traits that make good leaders.
Some people are natural leaders that lead effortlessly. ost people need to find mentors and teachers to become leaders.
Find out how influence, networking and empowerment make you a BA leader with the power of a Jedi master to take action with confidence.
During this presentation learn tools to be a leader that inspires and motivates people to achieve more than they thought possible.
Learn techniques that will draw people to you and create powerful relationships. Small changes in how we interact with people provide powerful impacts in our
ability to influence and lead. BAs, like Jedi’s, wield powerful influence in the smallest situations.
• How to motivate and inspire as a leader
• Techniques for networking
• Tips for relationship building
