Leader, Manager, Expert: Which Calling is Yours? (Breakfast or Lunch Forum)
Friday, October 18, 2013 from 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM (EDT)
These and similar scenarios play out all too often. Our corporate cultures often imply that if you’re good at what you do, in order to prove it or get ahead, you have to pursue leadership.
I invite you to join us for this forum as we dive deeper into these perspectives and exchange thoughts that will help you and other attendees choose career paths that make the most of their individual strengths. Further, for those of us in leadership, management and expert roles, we will explore how to frame counsel for direct reports, peers and colleagues that will help them explore this question in an objective way with resources to support their discovery.
I have invited a few colleagues whose perspectives I admire to help lead the dialogue and participate as panelists for part of the forum.
Prior to attending the forum, each attendee will be asked to complete Gallup’s StrengthsFinder assessment. As part of the discussion, each attendee that submits their StrengthsFinder themes will receive an assessment of which path they may be more naturally suited for and how to use that in planning their careers.
Our hope is that you will come away from this forum with an assessment of your strengths, a perspective on you career path, and a collective advisory on how you can use that to optimize your career. You’ll also be better equipped to manage this conversation with your colleagues, co-workers and those you lead. You will have the opportunity to engage with other peers, leaders and colleagues in a way that will influence how you work with others and appreciate their contributions – having a better understanding of their gifts-based role in your team dynamics.
So come, connect, eat and build the plan to play your crescendo. I hope to see you there.
Peace and Blessings,
