I've just finished taking a few professional leadership courses through ARCUS. ARCUS is "a leadership academy offering an array of course in leadership theory and practice tailored to the specific challenges facing leaders in the [historic preservation and cultural heritage] field."
The ARCUS courses are great (and I'd encourage anyone interested to look into them), but they've also inspired me to ask you all: What leadership tips would you offer emerging professionals? (Note: emerging professional, as referenced here, can include: a person who just graduated from school, mid-career professionals who want to use innovative techniques to solve a problem in the field, people starting their own firms, etc.)
Also, if you've taken some of the ARCUS courses, what were some of your favorite courses and what was one of the most valuable lessons you learned about leadership and why?Looking forward to the discussion,
