2021 Emerging Leaders Communication Symposium (Virtual)

  📅 Add to calendar

As leaders emerge in the workplace, they are identified by key characteristics. These often include the ability to drive change, identify business opportunities, share and implement new ideas, cultivate respect amongst their colleagues and support their teams. While some leaders are born with these gifts, however, they can also be cultivated, practiced and perfected through the use of particular tools. 

During this session, manufacturing professionals will engage in the practical application of communication techniques that will enable professionals in emerging leadership roles to identify process improvements, reduce inefficiencies and utilize the tools needed by leaders to successfully drive organizational change and bottom-line impact. 

Facilitator Lowell Applebaum will lead attendees through the practice and application of specific methodologies, including:

  • Listening tactics designed to minimize conflict and clarify peer communication
  • Conversation strategies to help avoid conflict through negotiation, identify process inefficiencies and explore business opportunities
  • Decision-making methods to help align goals with a balance of risk and autonomy throughout a department 

Additionally, peers will have the opportunity to engage with one another during "Peer Masterminds" to discuss personal challenges in the workplace and shared solutions.
