Leadership is a skill that is developed at all levels within your career.

While most people associate leadership with leading others, the most effective leaders start with a clear understanding of how to lead themselves. Having an understanding of your own leadership competencies and motivators serves as the foundation of successful leadership. Identifying a personal leadership profile provides a starting point from which individuals can address challenging issues with effective self-awareness on a team, company, or industry level.

Taking cues from the Bard MBA program’s Sustainable Leadership curriculum, this session encourages participants to incorporate their values, vision, and leadership styles into their work to build confidence as high performing individuals and change-makers. Group discussions, small group activities and individual reflections will lead to the formation of a personal leadership profile.

Participants will:

  • Articulate goals around personal and professional leadership
  • Reflect on the role of Vision and Values in leadership
  • Articulate 1-2 leadership challenges that might prevent goals from being achieved
  • Develop strategies to address those challenges

This workshop is for you, if you’re a professional seeking to:

  • Identify a clearer career direction
  • Motivate yourself and others behind a single vision
  • Articulate your leadership style with greater confidence
  • Address challenges that prevent you from being effective leaders

This workshop is presented in collaboration with the Bard MBA in Sustainability Program. The Bard MBA in Sustainability is a hybrid MBA program that fully embeds sustainability into a core business curriculum. It meets once-monthly over a four day weekend in New York City with online classes in between. Information at
