Social workers are leaders in all realms of life: as employees, supervisors, family members, and community volunteers. Leadership is not about title, but about personal actions. Come and intentionally identify what is important to YOU and focus your time and energy on your priorities. At this highly interactive conference, Social Workers will learn about the Leading ME Principles; receive up to one hour of a leadership ethics component using the NASW Code of Ethics; and develop a Leadership Action Plan using the Producktivity® Principles. This training includes two (2) 1-hour group coaching sessions after the conference to provide supportive accountability and help you reach your measurable goals.

Interactive training will be conducted using Zoom. A webcam and reliable Internet connection is required to participate.
