Our presenter for this live seminar, Stephanie Hinshaw, was a top-rated presenter at our 2019 Leadership in Higher Education Conference. Her standing room only session on this topic and a direct request in the rave reviews for more on this crucial topic led to this Magna Online Seminar. Stephanie will provide a greater understanding of what toxic leadership is and how it impacts your institution.

Additional Detail

When discussing leadership, we often focus on the positive characteristics, behaviors, and capacities of leaders. However, as we all know, not all leaders are good or positive. Unfortunately, negative and toxic leaders exist. Learn more about toxic leadership and the impacts it has on organizations all while learning how to avoid these attributes in your own leadership practice.
