The College Of Business & Economics At Longwood University Presents
The Executive-In-Residence Series
"Competitive Leadership Values"
The evolution of leadership strategies has seen a transition away from the historical command-and-control leadership style that is based on a Win-Lose mentality where only the strong survive. Effective 21st century leaders focus on servant-hood and mutual opportunities that resolve conflict at the point of contact based on a Win-Win paradigm. In this regard, effective leaders are data driven and implement robust programs that help inform and reinforce partnerships with all stakeholders. Competitive Leadership Values drive performance, build trust and create long term effectiveness.
With a mission of educating future business leaders, the College of Business and Economics offers multiple opportunities for students to develop their leadership values. This includes bringing knowledge and experiential learning about such topics as leadership values and ethics into the classroom. The 2013-14 Executive-in-Residence series brings four business leaders to campus for a full day of interaction with students and faculty.
By fostering a dialog with today's business leaders, the Executive-in-Residence series is just one of the ways that the Longwood University College of Business and Economics prepares students to be successful citizen leaders with the knowledge and skills to advance their careers, their organizations, and their communities.
All programs begin at 7:00 P.M. at Longwood University in Farmville, Va. The public is invited.
