Patrick Madsen, Ph.D.
Pratt Master's students can register for this workshop at wconline.pratt.duke.edu on the Professional Development Masters F19 Schedule. Career advancement is based on your skills not only as a leader, but also as a follower. Do you find yourself just following the crowd, not taking a chance? Do you feel unappreciated or not caring anymore? This interactive presentation will take students through a discovery of their followership style, how each style is articulated on the job, and how they may affect career projection now and in the future for staff and yourself. Presentation includes a brief followership style assessment, examples to assist in understanding each style, strategies to move into a more "effective follower", and open discussion.
