Security Leadership For Everyone: Personal Authority and Beyond

  • Webcast Aired Thursday, 25 Feb 2016 9:00PM EST (26 Feb 2016 02:00 UTC)
  • Speaker: Ted Demopoulos

Security Leadership is not a role for only those in charge. A leader is anyone who has followers: they may have followers because they are in a position of power, because they take initiative, or perhaps simply because they set a good example and people follow their lead.

Leaders have followers because they have some sort of \Authority." They may have "Positional Authority" because they are in charge, because of their position or title. They may have "Personal Authority," authority that is earned through actions. Many leaders have both: Positional Authority because they are in charge and Personal Authority because they have earned respect through their actions.

In this Webinar, we look at leadership and authority, discussing both types of authority and concentrating on what it takes to establish Personal Authority in security.

Security Leadership is not reserved for those "in charge" - Personal Authority can be earned by all of us.
