If you lead any sort of team in Continuing Education these days, you are almost certainly stick-handling them through "interesting" transitions. Doing this effectively requires more than just good administrative skills; it needs a positive vision of what's on the other side, a clear plan of how to get there, and a sense of personal engagement from your reports. In other words, it requires a combination of efficient management and personal leadership that will test your abilities to the maximum. This lively and interactive workshop will help you develop the skills needed to lead change: communicating clearly, delegating effectively, and making decisions collaboratively, for a start. Be the driver of the train, not the one the train runs over!
- explore basic principles of leadership
- Demonstrate practical strategies to engage your team more deeply and lead them effectively to a common goal.
