Webinar #5 - What Makes a Good Leader?
Join us on Thursday February 25th from 10 AM-12 PM, as we discuss the critical elements of a good leader through personal stories from four very different conservation leaders.

Successful leadership comes in many forms and often includes a combination of courage, integrity, humility, clear focus, and the ability to support your team to reach challenging goals. What does it take to develop these critical skills and excel in the field of conservation? Join us for a panel discussion to learn how four dedicated environmental professionals from conservation focused organizations in different stages of their careers have persevered through obstacles from political roadblocks and creating meaningful connections remotely, to guiding a team through a crisis. From lessons learned to stories in the field and providing actionable advice, conservation leaders are sharing their experiences to support the next generation of leaders.
