What You Will Learn

  • Managing Yourself — Begins with who you are and how others perceive you.  Managing yourself requires dealing with multiple paradoxes. It is a transformative and influential role which should focus less on authority and friendship with your team and others in the organization and more on trust in your competence and character.
  • Managing Your Network — Begins with the need to work effectively in political environments without becoming enmeshed or controlled by them. Learn to influence with integrity and the understanding of the political realities of organizational life. Build 3 networks: operational, strategic and developmental of critical people you must work with and whose help you need.
  • Managing Your Team — Begins with defining the future, clarity about how your team works (systems), its norms, values and standards.  Manage both the team and the individuals in the team. Every day is a new opportunity to establish your ability to lead your team.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
