Leaders know how to make their teams great. They unlock potential, promote creativity and innovation, and attract top talent—which is why strong leadership skills will make you an invaluable member of your organization.

Connor Beaton, a local leadership and management expert, is joining us for a LIVE Twitter chat on becoming a good leader. We'll discuss developing your leadership style, building powerful relationships, the importance of communication, and more.

We'll start with these five questions:

  1. What's the difference between a leader and a manager?
  2. What are the most important qualities of a great leader?
  3. How will I know I'm ready to move into a leadership role?
  4. What is my leadership style, and where do I need to grow?
  5. What is the hardest part about being a leader?

If you'd like to learn to develop your leadership skills, or you have some valuable experience to share with the group, please join us!
