Leading From Where You Are

Leading from where you are

Leading From Where You Are (LFWYA) helps individual contributors develop the skills necessary to lead from within their current position. Using a blended learning methodology, LFWYA brings participants through sessions with instructor-led programming, self-directed learning, independent article review, and group discussion. As a result, participants emerge with an increased awareness of themselves professionally and how they can make an impact on their team within their current role. 

Eight unique sessions comprise the course. Learning groups meet between each session to discuss the session topics and put the information to practical use. Participants are also responsible for reviewing articles, videos, etc., related to the upcoming session.
