Authentic Leadership: Creating an Open Space | Tony Tizcareño, UCI Center for Student Leadership

As Anteaters, we are all connected to this campus and one another. As AntLeaders, we ask that you take the next step to engage each other with authenticity. Leaders will explore how vulnerability can be leveraged as a strength inside and beyond their organizations. Exploring courage, compassion, and a sense of belonging, this interactive workshop will help students define vulnerable leadership and examine radical ways to build their own ‘alternative’ leadership skills.

High-Performance Communication for LeadersValerie Sheppard, UCI Merage School of Business

Communication is a critical performance aspect of leadership. In fact, It can be more important than academic success and professional experience. If you’re not actively strengthening your communication skills, you may be unwittingly holding yourself back.
