This event/activity qualifies for 1.00 Leadership PDU.
A leader without personal credibility will be frustrated and ineffective. In this presentation, “Personal Credibility and Leadership,” we discuss the relationship between your personal credibility and your leadership, and between your leadership and the success of your project. Mindful leaders are self-aware, and can therefore control their speech and behavior to ensure their actions will have the intended short-term and long-term effect. They remain composed, enabling them to anticipate the reactions of others, and counter their emotional reactions calmly and thoughtfully. Leaders who can behave like this, who take a mindful and versatile approach to work, develop and maintain personnel credibility because others—team members, senior leaders, and stakeholders—trust them to be a positive influence on any situation.
