Upcoming Chapter Event APA MN Women Planning Committee: Values- Based Leadership Event
About this event
The values we each hold closest to us are central to who we are and how we lead—yet, many of us haven’t spent much time exploring and reflecting on that. Understanding our personal values and the values of the people we engage with is fundamental for gaining trust, building credibility as leaders with character, and informing us as planning practitioners.
This session will challenge participants to look internally and deepen their understanding of the values that matter most to them, and how to uphold those values as Planners. Through a lively and engaging activity, they will prioritize their values and refine what those values mean to them and how they see them playing out in the decisions they make and the actions they take both personally and professionally.
