  • Intro Session: What Makes a Leader?
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    Winston Churchill and Mother Theresa were two distinctly different individuals. Despite their differences however, most would agree that they were both were very effective leaders. Is it possible that these two incredibly different individuals, and all other great leaders for that matter, share a common set of core elements that define “true” leadership? During this session, participants will explore whether such core elements exist and what it really takes to be a leader.

    1. List 3-5 core elements of leadership

  • Strengths & Flow: Maximizing Individual Contributions
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    Great leaders seem to have a magical ability to get more from their teams than is humanly possible. Many leaders believe the key to such performance lies in charismatic inspiration, or draconian punishment/reward systems. While those strategies may work for a time, they alone can never produce sustained “superhuman” performance. This session will illustrate the importance of identifying peoples’ strengths and aligning them with appropriate tasks matched in both type and complexity.

    Learning Objectives: By the end of this session, By the end of this program, attendees will be able to:

  • Core Values: Your Guide to Meaning, Purpose and Priorities
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]

  • Meeting Needs to Ensure Organizational Relevance & Enable Individual Contribution
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    Every day of every year, organizations that may have once been great, suddenly disappear. Why? For many, the simple answer is that they become irrelevant; losing touch with the needs of the individuals they were created to serve.

  • Interest and Passion: A Leader’s Ultimate Energy Source
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    Many people pursue leadership because they like the idea of being a leader. Once they become a leader however, they soon realize that there is a big difference between the idea of being a leader and performing the actual work of a leader. Leadership can be fraught with frustrations and disappointments. Many people will question and disagree with a leader’s vision. Furthermore, even those who agree with it may offer to help and never follow through. Challenges such as these can suck the life force out of a leader, sapping their will and energy. This program will help participants identify their interests and passion(s) and leverage them as a source of limitless energy to drive their leadership pursuits.

    5. Derive and discover one’s passion as a source of internal motivation to sustain leadership through challenging times.

  • Aligning Organizational Participation with Personal Values, Interests, Strengths and Needs
    [ + ] View Session Description [ - ]


    Good leaders know an organization’s most valuable resource is its people. Great leaders use that knowledge to align their peoples’ values, interests, strengths and needs with organizational goals and priorities. During this session, participants will gain experience in this process by reviewing CPhA’s strategic plan through the lens of their own personal values, interests, strengths and needs.

    Learning Objectives: By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
