SITUATIONAL LEADERSHIP IN THE WINE INDUSTRY

Presented by Professor Kimberly Elsbach

This workshop introduces participants to two important facets of leading well: (1) adapting leadership approaches to the situation, and (2) avoiding common pitfalls of strong leadership. Participants will learn to identify five primary leadership approaches and how to determine which approach fits best with their leadership context.  We then examine four traits we expect of “strong” leaders and will learn when these traits are important for leaders and why pursuing them at all costs may actually result in poor leadership.

WHAT’S YOUR STORY? CREATING A WINE BRAND THAT STANDS OUT

Presented by Brian Dunbar, Managing Partner and Director, David & Galiath

This segment will help participants understand how to develop a powerful brand story and how to communicate it consistently at all touch points with choice customers.
