The Key Essentials for Leadership Workshop (separate registration required)
Time 10/26/14 01:00PM-05:00PM
It is well known that organizations with good leadership are more productive and have lower turnover (41% lower turnover, in fact.) Yet it is not unusual to promote good workers to a leadership role and expect them to be good leaders with no formal training. Leadership is like any skill; it takes training, support and work to get better. If you have someone on your team that you have recently promoted to a team leader or early management position, you may be interested in having her attend this special Intro to Leadership workshop that is being held the Sunday prior to the 2014 Technology Exchange in Indianapolis, October 26, 2014.
This workshop gives new leaders a foundation to improve their leadership skills. It includes an introduction to leadership and how to build relationships between the leader and the team. Communication, the single most important skill for a leader, is next on the agenda, with proven techniques to improve. The workshop concludes with goal setting and tracking—the first step to building an accountable team that executes. This workshop uses content developed by Academy Leadership and delivered to over 10,000 people. It will be presented by Don Welch, current CEO of Merit Network, with 35 years of leadership experience and training.
