Today’s leaders are consistently found in the midst of change – needing to adapt, think ahead, be more conscientious, and resilient. And no matter your level or title, you are continually leading and influencing the people around you.  Given the evolution of the workplace, it is now more important than ever to understand what is needed to “level up” and evolve your approach to leadership.

Level Up: Focusing Innovation

October 16th, 8:00am-9:30am, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Warwick, RI

Organization’s needs “it”. Teams are expected to have “it”. Clients want “it”. Leaders need to unlock “it.” CEO’s identified “it”: as one the most important leadership competencies needed for success of the future. What is “it”?  “It” is innovation and innovative thinking. Why do you need it? Because every workplace, business and industry are faced with fast-paced market shifts and external forces, including emerging technology and competition – all creating disruptions.

Level Up: Misunderstood or Mismanaged

November 20th, 8:00am-9:30am, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Warwick, RI

The relationship between managers and employees is critical to retention and engagement.  A Gallup study reported that 50% of Americans have left a job to “get away” from their manager at some point in their career.  This same study reports that the manager accounts for at least 70% of the variance in employee engagement. A strong and effective relationship between a manager and employee requires understanding and being understood on many levels.  While most managers and employees focus on understanding goals, priorities, and methods, what is often missed is understanding strengths, styles and perspectives.When employees and managers misunderstand each other, employees feel mismanaged and managers feel misunderstood.  So, what can be done to bridge the gap?
