The Spark Leadership presentation series motivates, inspires, and energizes leaders at all levels of the organization to consider new ideas, new approaches and strategies, and to think differently. The series is offered three times a year, once per semester.
Thought leaders from various disciplines and organizations are invited to address the William & Mary/VIMS community on a variety of leadership topics. Both formal and informal leaders are invited to attend, learn and grow.
Upcoming Spark Leadership Presentation: "After the Election: Now What?"
Presenter: Ms. Cathy Lewis, president of CIVIC Leadership Institute and host of HearSay with Cathy Lewis on WHRV-FM, will speak about civic discourse in the aftermath of an election season where all, or at least many, of the rules of political dicorum were broken. What does this mean for the workplace? Ms. Lewis will provide us a framework for discussing hot, touchy subjects in a way that leads to dialogue and greater understanding that can be used in the workplace and in public life.
