WIB-RTP Presents “Leading from the Middle” with E.L. Betsy Smith

NC Biotech Center | Dogwood Room, 15 TW Alexander Dr. Durham, NC Sep 25 6:00 pm - Sep 25 8:00 pm

Most of us lead from the middle. Even CEOs of major corporations have boards to which they report. Leading from the middle requires unique and distinct skills to lead up – lead the boss, lead across – influence colleagues, and lead down – supervise subordinates.
During this interactive, fast-paced, fun-filled presentation (based on John Maxwell’s work) E. L. “Betsy” Smith, PhD, will teach participants real-world techniques to improve their communication and leadership skills. At the end of this presentation, participants will have two strategies to utilize in each of the following scenarios:

1. Telling the boss what he/she needs to hear – not what they want to hear

2. Influencing colleagues

3. Giving constructive feedback to subordinates.
