Event description
The New Exec invites you to the launch of Take The Lead, the premiere leadership evening for rising leaders in Chicago.

About this Event

Take The Lead is Chicago's most robust leadership development evening program open to the public. Each quarter we'll focus on one theme that's critical to the success of rising leaders.

Guests will enjoy conversation with a hand-selected group of panelists and speakers to represent a range of industries, job functions, backgrounds, and experiences.

Our November 2019 theme is People & Team Management and we can't wait to break this down.

Here's why this theme matters and what you can look forward to during the evening:

Management is one of the most critical parts of the work world, yet a high number of people and team managers report not having sufficient training and support. Those not currently in management positions but who aspire to it are often unsure (a) how to move into these roles, (b) what people management truly includes, and (c) if people management would be a good fit.

Join us to learn what's worked and not worked from leaders in these roles, how to shift from an individual contributor role to a manager role, "watch-outs" for leaders at all levels, the difference between managing directly and indirectly, and more. We'll also cover the #1 thing you must do to set your management style apart.

Program includes:

  • Panel discussion with individuals living the evening's theme (no consultants or "experts" - simply people who are navigating the ups and downs IRL)
  • Interactive workshop led by leadership coach & master trainer to teach a tangible outcome that can be applied immediately in your work
  • Fireside chat with a local senior leader who's making a big impact on the community

Panel speakers:

  • Adara Bowen, Director of Brand Experience @ AMA
  • Ilysia Carlberg, Head of Talent & Culture @ ReviewTrackers
  • Jonny Vu, Regional Director @ FlexManage
  • Melissa Footlick, COO & TopStepTrader

Fireside chat featuring:

  • Amanda Pyron, Executive Director @ The Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women's Network

Wine, beer, and light refreshments will be served.

25% of all net proceeds from The New Exec events benefit a local charity. November 2019 Take The lead benefits The Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women's Network.
