Leading with Purpose

The Leading with Purpose Program is a 6-month program designed for supervisors, managers, directors or anyone who is on a managerial track to further develop the leadership skills and effectiveness of UAMS leaders. Through exploring a variety of leadership topics, leaders will develop ways to apply their learnings to their everyday work for increased effectiveness. The content will be cumulative and modules will build upon each other as the program progresses.

The program includes 6 full-day sessions plus a day long kick-off event/orientation and will include the following modules: Servant Leadership/Emotional Intelligence (EI), Building Effective Teams, Dealing with Workplace Conflict/Difficult Conversations, Change Management, Strategic Thinking, and Influencing Organizational Impact.

The DiSC assessment in addition to the DiSC 363 will be offered at the start of the program to each participant with up to 3 follow-up coaching sessions from UAMS Leadership Coaches to aid the participant in coming to greater self-awareness of himself or herself as a leader.
