The presenters began by having the participants key in on their own personal leadership styles using “Poll Everywhere” and a “Quick Click Survey”. They then discussed in detail the positive and negative aspects of each style. The whole emphasis of the presentation was that no one style fits every situation and that it is important to recognize when to tap into the various positive aspects of each style. The presenters concluded the presentation by providing the participants with various practical applications/scenarios. This interactive presentation had everyone involved.
