Strong relationships are central to successful leadership. Communication is nearly 70% of a leaders’ job, so understanding your Managing Partners’ communication style is critical to your success. We will be uncovering the layers of leadership required for success, starting with communication and including motivations and strengths. We will discuss how culture is impacted by the relationships at the top – executive committees, administrative teams and task forces – and take back ideas to improve your relationships, and your leadership. 


•    Identify components of strong relationships 
•    Discuss communication and conflict management 
•    Integrate accountability as a relationship building tool 
•    Examine the interrelationship between culture and leadership
