BADD 2017 - Breakout Session : What's Your Strategy?

Building a Personal Leadership Strategy for

Any Role You're In


Are you embarking on a new leadership role?   Managing a new project with unknown stakeholders?  Assigned as a BA to an existing team?  All good leaders continuously strive to understand themselves, their environment and those they lead.  No matter what role you're in or project you're on, having a Personal Leadership Strategy that is reasonable, actionable, and achievable no matter your experience, project or place in life can benefit you.

In this session, Michelle will take you through the Personal Leadership strategy she created for herself while floundering as a new President of the St. Louis Chapter of the IIBA.  While walking through her plan, and hearing about her comical leadership failures, you'll be invited to build your own plan along the way.   Creating a simple leadership strategy, taking into account strengths, weaknesses, goals, environment, motivation, and more is what Michelle attributes to being the leading driver for what the board was able to accomplish in just two short years.  Accomplishments which lead to the chapter's nomination in not one, but three, 2016 IIBA Chapter Awards.  The Personal Leadership Strategy built to lead a chapter quickly became a strategy used for all her new leadership endeavors.
