The role of a leader differs in many ways from the role of a technical expert. It takes more than a new name tag; it requires a transition from doing the work yourself to becoming one who fosters the productivity of others. This transition is even more complex if you must lead a group of former peers.

This noncredit, professional development workshop provides practical guidance for those new to leadership or considering a leadership role . By attending, you will understand how to create effective boundaries, influence others, and build your capacity to lead.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will list the differences between the role of an individual contributor and a front-line supervisor.
  2. Participants will apply principles for establishing appropriate boundaries.
  3. Participants will clarify personal values.
  4. Participants will assess their level of emotional intelligence.
  5. Participants will plan individualized areas for further development.

Instructor Arlene J. Anderson has over 25 years of leadership experience in a variety of settings, including education, health care, and light industry. She works with groups to create elegant solutions to “people” issues and build effective leadership teams. She gets her points across in a practical yet entertaining manner. Arlene possesses a Master of Science in Psychology, specializing in Organization Development and Adult Learning. She is based in the Twin Cities.
