Workshop Schedule for 2018

Workshop 3: Self Competencies Workshop

Sunday, March 18

  • 3:30 – 4:30 p.m. – Networking
  • 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. – Workshop

Education Building, Sacramento

In this, the third in our LFP workshop series, we will discuss tools and techniques related to the Self Competencies of the UC Davis MBA Leadership Competency Model. Hitting on the key topic clusters of being authentic, being open and being flexible and adaptable, we will work to more deeply engage with the competency needed to be success in these areas: courage, instills trust, demonstrates self-awareness, manages ambiguity, nimble learning and being resilient.

Specifically, this workshop will focus on Trust & Leadership. The 3-hour workshop will introduce students to the topic of leader trustworthiness. Using exercises, videos, and case studies, the workshop will help students to understand A) why being trusted is essential to leadership effectiveness, B) how their current trust relationships reveal individual propensities for building specific types of trust (e.g., competence-based trust vs. contractual-based trust), C) how trustworthiness is demonstrated by leaders, and D) how leaders can undermine their trustworthiness through behavior and communication. The workshop uses Roger Mayer’s well-known model of trustworthiness that is based on the constructs of integrity, competence, and benevolence, as well as the facilitator’s extensive experience researching trustworthiness among business leaders.
