- 3:25 - 3:40 pm - Conclusion
According to Dr. Graves, "Leadership is leading with influence, but service is thinking of others over yourself." Throughout this workshop, we will explore a new notion of leadership. "At the end of the day, what I want as a servant leader is for you to be the best version of yourself." Applying this mindset shifts the concept and behaviors of leading from leading for my benefit, to leading for your benefit.
At the conclusion of this event, you will have
- Elected new ISCPA Leadership
- Shared your voice about the future of the Accounting Profession
- Practical ways to serve and build healthy teams in your organization.
- Knowledge of how to create a culture that puts people first.
- A roadmap for personal and professional development.
- An understanding of what happened during the 2023 Idaho legislative session.
Revolutionary Leadership Practices...
- Are you ready to revolutionize the way you lead?
- What if, as a leader, you served your team rather than told your team what to do? How would this affect the success of your organization? Join Dr. Jeremy Graves as he turns traditional leadership paradigms in business upside down with his seven pillars of servant leadership. These pillars include Others First, Being a Collaborator and Leading with the Future in Mind.
- Through these pillars, Dr. Graves capitalizes on his training in Transformational Leadership and over twenty-five years of leadership experience in the classroom and in life and business to offer organizational leaders an alternative to effectively leading their teams.
- This workshop will not only revolutionize the way you lead but also give you life-long principles for effective living.
