Lead Change Tulsa and the Department of Continuing Education at TCC present an open breakfast meeting to discuss how Defining Moments impact your personal leadership and your organization. Whether or not you're directly involved in leadership or HR, there are things you can do to help develop your own leadership and the leadership of those around you. Defining Moments We all experience "defining moments" that shape our careers and our influence. Many times we make difficult decisions or face ethical dilemmas. On these occassions, we can begin to fathom some of the potential impact of the decisions we make. Other times seeming minor choices have a major impact in our direction and impact as leaders. How do you face these defining moments? How can we focus in these situations. How can we help others face these situations? What can we do to focus on what's most important and make the best of our circumstances and situation? Format: Open Panel Discussion.
