Professional Development for Administrative Staff: Leading From Any Chair



The Alverno Forum invites the Greater Milwaukee community to engage in respectful dialogue and common effort for the public good. A variety of topics — all relevant to local needs and committed to Alverno’s philosophy of seeking broad perspective — are addressed during the school year, and each Forum is led by one of Alverno’s four schools: Arts & Sciences, Business, Education and Nursing. Join us for lively evening discussions, free and open to the public. Visit the Forum page for dates, topics and registration.

Leading From Any Chair: Who am I? Who are They? How do We Work Effectively Together?
Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Presented by Alverno’s Institute for Educational Outreach and Human Resources Department

We all step up and take the reins in some way, no matter what our position in an organization. Our multi-dimensional offices require flexibility from all employees and the ability to take ownership—whether taking the lead on a project, taking a turn running team meetings or taking control of a new initiative. This workshop will give you insights to your own skills and perspectives, how to navigate differences with others in your teams and how to use tools to better manage yourself, your projects and your processes to succeed in leading others.
