Alumni Coffee & Professional Development

December 11, 2019 - 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM


"What do leaders like Steve Jobs and Elon Musk have in common? Is it a natural gift? Is it training? Many claim that it is their charisma...Long believed to be a natural gift, charisma can be learned and expressed through specific leadership behaviors." – Dr. George Banks

The Belk College of Business invites alumni, graduate students and business community friends to enjoy coffee and a professional development session on charismatic leadership facilitated by Drs. Janaki Gooty and George Banks.   We'll enjoy time for both networking and a complimentary sampling of the upcoming UNC Charlotte Executive Education program on charismatic leadership. Anyone can learn and express charisma through specific leadership behaviors. During this session, participants will learn why charisma is such an important leadership trait and receive tips drawn from cutting edge, scientific evidence to develop their own charisma.
