LEADERSHIP BOOTCAMP FOR ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS 
XFA-119

Learn a collective overview of the critical elements, thinking, application and practice of leadership and team building within the arts and creative sectors. Discover insights into different leadership styles and discern your own leadership style and decision-making practice when working solo, as part of a collective, collaborative or incubator, or when leading and managing teams, large and small, within for profit and nonprofit organizations. Go even deeper, to assess the values and culture within an organization to understand its leadership and management styles, influenced by the organizational culture and values, and the diversity of people, cultures, ethnicities, age, differing abilities and backgrounds. Articles, blogs, research presentations, videos, case studies, and actual experiences related to leadership and team building will be included, synthesized and broken down to evaluate actual impact and outcomes vs. alternative solutions. You will develop interpersonal skills, and learn to adeptly and confidently address a variety of challenging leadership and management styles by implementing strategies that realize positive outcomes and leverage effective change.
