FUNDAMENTALS OF LEADERSHIP
New Date: Wednesday, February 27, 2019
9:00 am - 3:30 pm
The Enterprise Center at Salem State University
Fundamentals of Leadership provides an updated perspective and overview of essential skills and characteristics for leading others in our new world of work. Expectations of the millennial workforce, both as the new generation of leaders and as team members themselves are demanding a more purpose-driven and humanistic work environment.
Research organization Gallup in their 2018 State of the American Workplace report reminded us again of the level of employee discontent and reported that 67 percent of the workforce are either not engaged or actively disengaged. Today's employees are more aware of the positive role that work can play in their lives - what a great job can be - and are more aware than ever of the gaps. Come learn about those gaps and the leader's role in closing them - to the benefit of themselves, their teams and their organizations.
In this one-day program, you will learn critical leadership skills so that you are able to step forward with confidence as a leader in your organization. You will develop practical, necessary skills such as managing your time well, communicating effectively, and delegating work to others. You will also learn what great leaders know: how to hire the right people, how to facilitate productive meetings and handle conflicts among team members, and how to coach people to give their best job performance. This program is intended for the employee transitioning to a leadership or supervisory role, as well as senior managers and supervisors who seek advanced training in organizational leadership.
