At the Nonprofit HR Conference, Daniel will present on personal career development. In order to increase their influence in nonprofits, HR professionals need to have better and broader leadership skills. Attend this session to begin your leadership training or to tune-up skills already in use. Explore leadership theory fundamentals and several proven leadership models, complete a self-evaluation of your leadership traits and practices, and will discuss the findings and observations together in a facilitated exchange. Participants will also get hands on and engage in action learning discussions using a question guide. Leave this session feeling empowered and with having developed a plan to put in place when you return to work from the conference.
