Title: Contagious Leadership
Topic: Spreading Passion and Purpose
COPE ID: 59010-PM
Duration: 1 Hour
Summary: The behaviors, attitudes, beliefs, actions and perspectives of any leader are “contagious” to its followers. Like a virus, our behavior, words, body language and mood directly impact the attitude, productivity and performance of the teams that we serve. Here we will discuss the concept of “social contagion”, that is, the impact that we, as leaders, have on those that we lead. By understanding our impact on others, we’ll better understand the needs of the organization, and create an environment that allows our teams to thrive and fulfill their greatest potential. Not happy with the results that you are getting? Understanding that the leader is often both the problem and the solution is the first step toward understanding “social contagion” and creating the type of organizational culture you desire.
