ACS Careers Industry Forum presents
“The Chemistry of Leadership: Making Your Skills Count! ”
An interactive hour of idea sharing with guest speaker: Catherine T. “Katie” Hunt, Ph.D.
In the midst of organizational changes, how do you make your skill set count? The first step is evaluating what’s needed; the second step is filling the gap. What’s needed is leadership, leadership at all levels. As I learned in an ACS Leadership Development Course, the three critical elements of leadership are: competency (the right mix of skills to do the job), passion (an inherent desire to get the job done), and alignment (a strong focus on achieving the goals). When you have all three, you see and feel success. Conversely, when individual performance or team performance is lacking, you can use this framework to assess the situation and plan a course of action. We’ll walk through what this looks like and then throw the session open for Q&A.
