Conference Theme: "The Self-Aware Leader"
April 1-2, 2022 - Marietta College - Marietta, Ohio
Leading well requires a strong sense of self – knowing who you are, your strengths, your weaknesses. In recent years, the leadership literature has paid increasing attention to the importance of self-awareness in leadership development. In the process of expanding their leadership capacity, leaders gain critical insights about themselves. Leading from the heart requires leaders to know themselves at a deeper level. This topic allows us to explore related issues, including (but not limited to) mindfulness, emotional intelligence, values-based leadership, authentic leadership, and leader burnout. In the spirit of sharing knowledge, best practices, and enriching students’ lives from diverse institutional backgrounds, we invite undergraduate/graduate students, staff, and faculty to consider submitting a proposal for possible presentation at the 2022 McDonough Leadership Conference at Marietta College in Ohio.
