Leadership Skills Workshop
Leading Up: How to Lead When You're Not in Charge
April 9, 2010 | 2:00-5:00 AM | Leadership Education Center in Page Hall
Barbara Braham will lead a workshop entitled "Leading Up: How to Lead When You're Not in Charge." As a new employee who may not be at the top of the ladder, how do you influence change and institute new projects? How do you engage people and lead a team?
Using interactive activities and team exercises, Barbara will lead participants in this practical workshop that will prepare students for real-world situations. She will introduce tips on creating a vision for a project or team, and then offer guidance on how to engage critical stakeholders in that vision. As well, important aspects like identifying who your stakeholders are, how to think about engaging them, and how to know what you need from each, will be covered.
