The Incredible and Credible Leader 
IPAC National Leadership Conference & Awards

February 5-6, 2015
The King Edward Hotel, Toronto
Conference website is coming soon

In naming a leader or leaders who could be described as incredible and credible, you would likely use such descriptors as inspiring, energizing, sincere, competent and committed. Other attributes considered when identifying a credible leader may include composed, honorable, likeable, or action oriented. Leaders are credible if others recognize that they combine technical expertise with strong relationships built upon doing what they say they will do, live by their word, demonstrate the values they talk about and do the right things for the right reasons.

In an environment of continuous change, the credibility you earn and exhibit is critical to building the culture necessary to meet the known and unknown challenges facing your organization. A leader who ‘walks the talk’ is able to build the trust, confidence and enthusiasm necessary to meet organizational objectives and deliver results.
