Credibility Book Discussion

Earlier this week, I wrote about the book that the leadership team is reading, "Credibility, How Leaders Gain and Lose It, Why People Demand It".  The WMHS Leadership Institute held 8 book discussions on chapters 1 and 2 over the last two weeks.  I participated in a session with about 20 other leaders in the organization on Wednesday.  It was an hour very well spent.  Going in, I was a little concerned that with my attendance, those leaders would be reluctant to speak and participate.  Not the case.  It was a great exchange, even with some talking about not being able to effectively articulate the vision for the organization and their department to their employees.  Then, having others providing suggested approaches on how to get that staff better engaged.  Everyone seemed to get something out of the discussion and they all loved the book. I am now looking forward to the chapter 3 and 4 discussion.  Great job, Jeanie Seifarth in putting this altogether and Mark Kerns in effectively leading a session with me at the table.
