Open to ALL Team Buckley members, no rank restrictions and Air Reserve options and service life intangibles. Spouses are also welcome to attend. “If manipulation of the frequency of occurrence of a word produces systematic variation in word value, then one wonders whether ideas and personal values are manipulable in the same fashion.” This musing from a 1960 study sparked a series of psychological experiments. In this one hour briefing, we will cover how to use exposure to inflate others’ opinions of you, how to overcome negative first impressions and how to be a better evaluator.

John Maxwell-360 Degree Leader
27 March | 0800-1200 | Bldg 210 | Classroom 1
Open to ALL Team Buckley members, no rank restrictions and Air Reserve options and service life intangibles. Spouses are also welcome to attend. In his nearly thirty years of teaching leadership, John Maxwell has encountered this question again and again. How do I apply leadership principles if I’m not the boss? It’s a valid question that Maxwell answers in The 360 Degree Leader. Maxwell asserts that you don’t have to be the main leader to make a significant impact in your organization. Good leaders are not only capable of leading their followers but are also adept at leading their superiors and their peers. Debunking myths and shedding light on the challenges, John Maxwell offers specific principles for Leading Down, Leading Up and Leading Across. 360-Degree Leaders can lead effectively, regardless of their position in an organization. By applying Maxwell’s principles, you will expand your influence and ultimately be a more valuable team member.
