About this event:
From Caterpillar to Butterfly: Transitioning From Manager to Leader
Have you just recently been promoted to a leadership position, or do you aspire to one day be a team lead, branch chief, division director or senior executive? Whether you currently hold the title of leader, or are striving to meet that career aspiration, it’s important to know the different between management and leadership, the traits of successful leaders and how you can develop them, and how to evaluate your own progress as a leader. Moreover, you must learn how to retain the respect of peers, hold yourself and other accountable, develop and communicate your vision, and inspire others to follow you.
