We kindly invite you to participate in a series of webinars from LvBS and the Center for Leadership of UCU «Leader character: creating effective teams». The second webinar will take place on April 1: «Good leadership in HR: level up your company». Together with the Center for Leadership of UCU’s CEO Andrew Rozhdestvensky, we will discuss the article topic «Embedding leader character into HR practices to achieve sustained excellence» by Gerard Seijts – Executive Director of Іan O. Ihnatowycz Institute for Leadership (Ivey Business School, Canada).

Modern HR practices very often focus on skill sets, at a time when the issue of leadership and commitment moves away on the margins. This causes problems for leaders because such a disequilibrium has a negative impact not only on the fulfillment of objectives by the leader but also by the whole team. Character and skills set must pull the same harness to ensure a successful result.

We will discuss the following:

  • Skills set for a good leadership (good leadership)
  • How to implement the leadership into the HR system
  • Leader’s character evaluation
  • Classification of potential employees by character
  • Behavioral modeling and mentoring

The event will be especially valuable for representatives of the HR sector, owners and CEOs.

Andrew Rozhdestvensky, the CEO of the Center for Leadership of UCU, will moderate the webinar.

Where: Zoom (we will send you a letter on the day of the event with a link to the meeting).

When: April 1, 18:30

Duration: 1 hour

Participation is free of charge on the condition of pre-registration.
