2015 Seminar

Courageous Leadership

Wednesday, March 11, 2015
8 a.m. โ€“ 3:30 p.m.
K-State Student Union
Manhattan, Kansas

Courageous leadership evokes change. Not everyone is a dean, provost or president, but each of us is given opportunities to lead courageously in our own workplace and daily lives. When we encourage daily transformation, we become more inclusive and effective as we work with all kinds of people to bring about change. Whether it is a change in our own behavior or in our approach with others, courageous leadership often requires patience, and can sometimes be uncomfortable. Whether you're taking a stand against injustice or encouraging a teammate to work more constructively, we've all experienced the thrilling โ€” and sometimes uncomfortable โ€” feeling of courage. This type of leadership often requires personal risk, but proves that each of us can be inspiring and find courage to better the lives of others.
