Leadership EDGE: San Francisco Business Excellence March Events

Leadership is a learned business edge. San Francisco is home to many leadership, networking, and community building events.

Leadership is a growing skill that is in demand. It is useful in business, family interactions, and carries over to daily living. Good leaders are in short supply, chiefly because it takes effort, work, self-control, and self-correction. It is about how motivated we are to make fundamental changes and shift our thinking, perceptions, and what we have grown accustomed to.

Professional Leadership Behaviors are:

• Proactive initiative
• Communicate

The proactive initiative looks for all the pieces to the puzzle in advance. Examine a bigger picture that creates a win-win situation. Take the steps necessary to think about every angle and the related outcomes and connected consequences.

Communication is being the first to say ‘hello’. Keep all doors open without judgment. Utilize the dashboards of information gathering, learned powers of discernment, and stay neutral as this contributes to successful remedies.

Personal excellence is within each of us. It is our internal commitment to ethics. This self-directed work demands that we do the right thing, no matter what. This includes the ability to make right the decisions, pivot and self-correct, and move toward creative ideas and service.  This is the quickest way to increase dignity, meaning, and community.

For consideration, look for classes at your local Community Colleges, business seminars, and continuing education.

Here are five March San Francisco networking and education events.
