Canceled – Transitioning from Managing to Leading

March 18, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

With respect to health and safety of all involved, this event has been cancelled. We will reschedule the session for a future date and look forward to being a part of your professional growth and development at that time. Please reach out to Nathan Bares at njbares@uwm.edu with questions and concerns.

Sponsored by Executive Education

Navigating a successful transition from manager to leader in your organization begins with an honest evaluation of both your skill set and your mindset. The qualities that made you an effective manager may not completely align with the expectations of a new leadership role. Understanding the key differences between management and leadership, and then reflecting on your skills, knowledge, and style will help you identify the gaps and outline a strategy for developing your leadership skills. In this session, we will explore the unique skills and behaviors that will boost your leadership effectiveness and expand your organizational influence.

Session Objectives
In this highly interactive workshop, you will:
• Examine your current management/leadership style
• Identify critical leadership skills and behaviors
• Share strategies and best practices with peers
• Develop a personal action plan to enhance your leadership profile

Who Should Attend
Professionals in leadership roles who spend most of their time doing management activities rather than leading their team or initiative
