Did you know that 99% of all leadership occurs not from the TOP but from the MIDDLE of an organization? Join the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) to explore the qualities of effective leaders at all levels and the essential skills necessary to flourish in one’s own management style while respecting organizational structure and mission. Through a series of interactive activities, attendees will explore how current and future leaders can bring relevant tools, values, and influence to and from every level of a correctional organization.
This webinar is designed for any employee of a federal, state, or local correctional jurisdiction who identifies as a current or future leader. NIC recommends that sites with multiple attendees consider registering and viewing the webinar together to facilitate implementation of webinar content into practice.
