As Spring quickly approaches, there is no time like the present to take advantage of another Chamber professional development opportunity! In a collaboration between the DeForest/Windsor Chamber and the Sun Prairie Chamber of Commerce, we are pleased to offer an exceptional educational opportunity to sharpen your leadership skills and network with fellow members from across the Chambers. Our partners at Madison College have worked with us to create a short and impactful Leadership Development Series, highlighting the latest skills and behaviors associate with some of the most common leadership practices and competencies.
• Here’s how it works: presented in a hybrid learning format, participants will have access to select foundational leadership material delivered in a virtual online learning module. Following the completion of this asynchronous resource, members will then be invited to share in a facilitated on-line LIVE coaching session with their peers, led by the leadership development instructional team from Madison College. The free-flowing roundtable narrative will leverage the material from the online module, and incorporate the working knowledge, experiences, and insight of the participants. We’ll dive deeper into the most effective actions and thought processes of great leadership; how to handle conflicts within the workplace; managing diverse generations and cultural nuances; and emulate effective communication strategies and practices, all thru interactive sharing and scenario-based situational leadership coaching. • Interaction and contribution is key, as you get out of it what you put into it! Bring your thoughts, questions, ideas and experiences into the conversation as we address common themes in leadership and what works (or not) across a variety of industries and organizations. • You may sign up for one, two or all five modules, whatever works into your schedule. Topics will be made available every few weeks, starting with the release of the online learning module. Links to the online modules and roundtable narratives will be sent to paid participants a few days before each scheduled release date. Take a look at the schedule to see what works for you.
