Case Western University to offer Executive Education Course May 23-24


Leadership Louisville Center to host “Becoming A Resonant Leader, Inspiring Change In Yourself And Others” Executive Green Room Workshop

The Leadership Louisville Center is partnering with the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University for its next Executive Green Room course, Becoming A Resonant Leader, on May 23-24.  Led by Dr. Melvin Smith, Professor of Organizational Behavior, this course is specifically designed for top level executives with significant management responsibilities, and offers the inspiration – and tools – to spark and sustain change in yourself and others.  The course is part of the Leadership Green Room, presented by the Republic Bank Foundation, which provides leadership development for individuals at all levels.

Why the Becoming A Resonant Leader course matters:  Great leaders move others by tapping into a basic human characteristic – emotions. Along with talk of strategy and competition, truly great leaders also establish a deep emotional connection with others called resonance. By being in tune with those they lead – ‘resonant leaders’ help others to excel and can inspire their teams to reach extraordinary results.  Learn more about Dr. Melvin Smith, and his career with Fortune 500 companies before becoming Faculty Director of executive education at Weatherhead.
