Authentic Leadership in a Context of Crisis
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM | Virtual
Speaker: Jim Robinson, Executive Director, The George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership
We each have an inner sense that tells us when we are experiencing authenticity, integrity, and congruency. However, that inner knowing can become clouded and distorted by fear. How can leaders provide assurance and confidence to move forward and through a crisis without false promises or blaming and shaming others to provide the temporary security others may be seeking? Holding the vision and promise of our highest truths in the face of our deepest fears may point a way through.

Cultivating Motivation and Engagement
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM | Virtual
Speaker: Angela Kochuba, Executive Leadership and Management Consultant, Management Concepts
Leaders and supervisors are often tasked with ensuring that their employees are motivated and engaged. This can be a difficult endeavor for even the most experienced leader.

Loving and Laughing Your Way to Leadership
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM | Virtual
Dr. Zina Sutch, Office of Diversity and Inclusion and Civil Rights, U.S. Small Business Administration
Professor Patrick Malone, Director, Key Executive Leadership Programs, American University
What’s missing with popular leadership models and frameworks? We’re facing a landscape of federal agencies that are constantly changing – artificial intelligence, five generations in the workplace, and matrixed organizations, to name a few. Leadership models will change. New variables, fancy graphics, and complex frameworks will be introduced every year. It’s guaranteed. But one thing will never change – the need for love and our desire to smile. The heart will never change, nor will the need for connection and the feeling of joy. Leadership is about love. A little laughter helps too!
