The Understanding and Courage to Lead â€“ Part 2
It is the age-old question: are leaders born or are they made? Some leaders seem to emerge among a group of peers due to their inherent traits, but then fail to perform well in a formal role. Effective leaders instead display a particular subset of positive traits and behaviors. Fostering and developing these behaviors over time with practice can make leaders. Through these four sessions, Medical Physics Leadership Academy (MPLA) will have attendees interactively explore essential personal and interpersonal knowledge and skills founded in and related to empathy and courage â€“ two key characteristics of effective leaders.
