Jun 7, 2022 9:30am ‐ Jun 7, 2022 10:45am

What’s inclusion got to do with it? At Plink leadership, we believe leaders build their competence by demonstrating the traits of inclusive leaders. Most leaders don’t intend to exclude others. Yet, leaders can fail to get the best out of their teams due to personal bias and the inability to adapt and listen deeper. In this session, you will gain insight into what it means to be an inclusive leader, including taking on the difference as your own and being courageous in conversation and your actions.

Owning Your Mistakes Builds Trust

Jun 7, 2022 4:15pm ‐ Jun 7, 2022 5:30pm

Inspired by the book Extreme Ownership by former Navy Seals Jacko Willink and Leif Babin. Great leaders do not blame the team members for mistakes and failures, they own it. This helps build teams that trust their leaders. This interactive session will help you learn how to implement this with your team. This book is dedicated to three warriors who paid the ultimate sacrifice: Marc Lee, Mike Monsoor, and Ryan Job. Marc Lee was one of my friends so this book has a special place in my heart as it pays respect to them and their families.
