Please join us on February 21st at New Horizons CLC of Columbus location in Dublin, Ohio to hear our guest speaker Tom Wilk.
Tom Wilk will speak on the responsibility of becoming a leader.
WON’T YOU BE MY LEADER?
Managers are often never properly trained for the responsibility of becoming a leader. True leadership is a never ending experience of personal and professional evolution and does not happen overnight. Even when the desire to lead and help others exists, it can take decades to develop methodology that works for you and those you lead. Employees are really counting on you to lead them not “Manage” them.
To set the stage I will share some of my experiences and insight through real-world challenges and pitfalls stemming from the shortcomings of poor leadership in my own experience as a manager. Then as a group we will share ideas around: having tough conversations with struggling team members and learn how to keep it positive, helping create the professional “rock star” by harnessing their individuality, and helping employees advance by creating a unique career plan.
Finally I will share some tools, tips, and techniques I use on a daily basis. The focus will be around helping individuals grow their career no matter where they are now. How to keep them engaged in their work, their team, and their career.
Tom has over 20 years experience as a leader in many business sectors including Corporate, Government, Contracting, and Higher Education.
He is currently an IT Manager at Carnegie Mellon University at the School of Computer Science. He leads several teams including Help Desk, PC Engineering, and Systems Administrators in Linux, Mac, and Windows.
His specialty the past 5 years is working with employees whose performance was struggling under other managers. He has been successful in turning their performance and careers around almost 100% of the time.
