Associations have the unique ability to enhance the personal and professional lives of individuals in virtually every business sector. Because associations are indispensable to industries, professions, and society, it's vitally important that people who work in associations have a full understanding of their nature and history.
This full-day course is part of ASAE's Association Management Week, a series of programs designed to build a strong understanding of the core functions of association management. Specifically designed for those who are new to the profession or have less than five years of experience in the field, Developing Your Leadership Potential addresses the basics of leadership, specifically as it pertains to membership organizations.
You’ll leave this course with a better understanding of leadership challenges and that membership organizations require both internal and external leadership to be successful. Take with you concrete ideas on how to resolve a variety of conflicts and how to develop your own leadership potential.
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (Continental breakfast, lunch, and snacks are included.)
Module One: Leadership Characteristics and Development
