First Things First – Who Are YOU?
Developing Your Personal Leadership Values and Philosophy

Danny Butler, Thomas Walter Center Professor, Auburn University

Leaders need to have a process in place which allows them to plan, act, and measure their performance against a benchmark. A big part of one’s success as a leader is found in one’s personal values, which shape how we plan and lead. This session will be one of theory and application as Dr. Butler presents a workshop from Auburn’s Executive MBA program to help us explore our personal leadership values and understand how they impact our leadership philosophy.
