Game Changing Leadership
Friday, Sept. 30, 2016, 10:15–11:30 a.m.

Today leaders are continually challenged to do more with less, achieve aggressive targets, and be innovative. The expectation is that they deliver and achieve goals regardless of what is going on in the fast, ever­changing world that we live in.

Leaders show that they are savvy and successful with the action they take and the behaviors they choose when working with their teams, key stakeholders, and employees. Gone are the days were communicating the vision, having clear goals, and saying a simple thank you is enough to get the job done. Leadership in 2016 and beyond is going to require uniquely critical skills to take organizations into the future in leaps and bounds.

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn the #1 skill that will set you apart from others and position you for continued success.
  • Learn practical approaches to engaging others using the game changing playbook behaviors
  • Be able to choose behaviors that position you to be ready for the continually changing corporate environment.

The goal of this workshop is to help prepare engineers so that they can be positioned for a successful career within their organization.
