So You Want To Be A Leader

Wednesday, December 14, 2011, at the U.Va. Richmond Center, 8:30 am–3:30 pm

Who Should Attend

Anyone who is considering moving into a leadership position

Overview

You have reached a point in your career when you feel ready to assume the role of supervising others. You feel that you can be effective—or even that you can do a better job than supervisors you have known. But are you really prepared to take on the new responsibilities that come with the new position?

This class will help you develop a “leadership mindset” to enable you to analyze a supervisor’s responsibilities, the strengths that make you a good fit, the skills and knowledge you will need to develop, and your motivation for wanting the job. You will leave class feeling better prepared to make your decision and proceed with the next steps.

Attend this seminar, and learn to

  • think like a leader
  • recognize the differences between leadership skills and individual-contributor skills
  • assess your readiness for a leadership role
  • demonstrate your readiness to those who can hire you
