Learn how to become a better leader and manager

January 16, 2012 by  

The Greater Omaha Chamber has an ongoing program named Chamber Academy. The next seminar in the Academy will be held at the Chamber on January 25 from 3:30-5:30 pm. Tickets for this event…and a second part to be held on February 8 are $39 for members and $49 for non-members.

Both parts of the seminar will be presented by Dan Sedor and Mike Anderson. The series is entitled “Leadership and Management: How both Impact Company Vision and Achievement of Goals.”

Part one of the series will be “Leadership versus management.” This will show you the key characteristics of leadership and how it differs from management, the impact having a purpose or vision will have on success and how to use effective management to increase positive results. Part two will be “Responsibilities of leadership.” It will show you the three responsibilities of a leader, will help you assess your leadership skills and will highlight the attitudes and behaviours of successful leaders.

Both seminars will also be perfect networking opportunities for you to get to know your fellow Omaha business owners. Before attending the seminars, and all other networking opportunities, it is imperative that you arrange for business card printing. Making a good first impression is very important to doing business and a well-designed card goes a long way in showing you to be a competent and trustworthy person to do business with. If you do hand out business cards, also make sure you deliver a quick “elevator pitch” describing exactly what types of services you can offer.
