Leading & Empowering — Growing Yourself
Tuesday, October 8 @ 9:15 am–12:00 pm
Supervision Series # 5
If ‘managing yourself’ is the foundational skill that begins the path to success, then leadership helps you expand beyond yourself and your immediate team. Learn what leaders do — the common traits, skills, and styles of leaders–and how your own leadership qualities can help empower your team and your organization.
All of us have some ideas about how we’d like to grow and improve. With the world changing faster than ever, continuous growth is essential. Learn to be prepared for today, tomorrow, and that ‘next opportunity’ by setting developmental goals and action plans, and taking responsibility for your ongoing growth and development. The eight essential skills of management and supervision help equip individuals for the challenges they will encounter today and into the future … a continuous journey to managerial excellence.
Presented by Paul Knudstrup, president of Midwest Consulting Group, Inc. and author of The 8 Essential Skills for Supervisors & Managers.
Designed for entry to middle-level directors and managers in all areas of nonprofit organizations (executives, programs, services, administration, operations, fund development, communications — anyone who supervises other staff or volunteers).
The five sessions build upon each other, so committing to the entire course will provide the greatest benefit. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at ONEplace@kpl.gov.
