Empowering Managers Certificate Program - Shaping your Role as a Leader

Tuesday, March 3, 2020 from 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and Bentley University are proud to announce a new partnership that will benefit professionals looking for comprehensive workplace training for managers in an exciting new certificate program.

Overview of the Empowering Managers Certificate Program

The jump from individual contributor to leader or new manager of direct reports can be challenging and derails many talented, aspiring leaders. In this four–part professional development series delivered in partnership with Bentley University, we will address common leadership challenges that often hinder managers, especially first-time managers, as they grow in their roles. 

You will be trained to move into a leadership mindset, explore methods to influence employee motivation and address poor performance, learn how to coach employees through development opportunities, and improve your ability to manage up and across organizations. Throughout these sessions, emphasis will be placed on employing practices that foster an inclusive work culture. A digital certificate will be awarded upon completion of three of the four sessions.

About this Session

Shaping your Role as a Leader: As a new manager, you’ll need to channel the skills that made you effective as an individual contributor and bring them to focus as you work to harness the talents of others. During this session, we will explore different leadership models that help to ensure you are focused on organizational change, including results-focused leadership, servant leadership, whole-brain leadership, and situational leadership.  We will also focus on key questions, such as when supervisors should adopt different methods, given unique team and cultural compositions. Through exercises and discussions, you will begin to shape your personal leadership approach in order to create an inclusive, authentic, and effective leadership style. Prep materials will be sent out one week ahead of the session.

**Shaping your Role as a Leader is part of a four part series on management. Participants who attend three of our four management offerings within one year will earn an online certificate of completion from the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and Bentley University.
