Leading in the Academic Enterprise® Series: Developing Leaders and Impactful Communication

June 5–6, 2017 | Tampa, Florida, USA

Everyone has experienced the moment when a seemingly harmless interaction, in business or in life, has suddenly turned into a “bad” conversation.

In the Developing Leaders and Impactful Communication segment of the three-part Leading in the Academic Enterprise® series, you will learn on day one to identify the factors that lead to negative interactions and use tools to turn difficult conversations into productive ones.

On day two, you will further explore the techniques for leadership thinking by delving into coaching, evaluation, recruitment, and retention of staff and faculty. You will systematically use the five-stage process, learned on day one, of finding, framing, formulating, solving, and implementing while role-playing in team exercises.

Begin transforming your interactions from difficult to productive by signing up today.
