One week left to register for RLC’s Leadership Workshop
INA, Ill. (May 4, 2016) – Professionals in the area have only one week left to register for Rend Lake College’s Leadership Workshop, scheduled for Thursday, May 19. Pre-registration is due by next Friday, May 13.
The workshop, scheduled for 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., is designed for those who have moved into leadership roles; team leaders responsible for growth, development, and performance of others; and anyone who wants to expand personal career choices and step into a leadership role, specifically managers and supervisors.
Presenter Sharon Tick will provide a fast-paced, high-energy training to give attendees techniques to charge their leadership skills and get employees on track for higher levels of performance. With her 20 years of professional experience in sales, management, insurance, team building, and administration, Tick will teach professionals how to support an environment of creativity, innovation, and passion – regardless of where they work.
Tick outlined several objectives for her presentation, including strengthening morale, keeping employees satisfied, inspiring employees to reach and exceed their potential, and eliminating negativity and poor attitudes in a team.
Specifically, she will focus on ways to identify what people need from their leaders and how exactly to meet those needs. Emphasis will also be on exploring new ways to tap into personal strengths and minimize weakness, developing a unique leadership style, and discovering new ideas for motivating individuals to perform.
The workshop will be held in the RLC Theatre on the Ina campus with registration beginning at 8 a.m. RLC is sponsoring the workshop, which costs $75 per person. To register or for more information, contact RLC’s Community and Corporate Education Division at 618-437-5321, Ext. 1714 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
