In the past, it was sufficient to “do your job”; but today’s top professionals—and future leaders--
must be doing their jobs while ALSO working to make their organizations better. It is no longer
sufficient to just work IN the process--leaders know they must be working ON the processes, too.

  1. 1. Fundamentals for Future Leaders Milan, Italy 29 June-3 July, 2009 14-18 September, 2009 In the past, it was sufficient to “do your job”; but today’s top professionals—and future leaders-- must be doing their jobs while ALSO working to make their organizations better. It is no longer sufficient to just work IN the process--leaders know they must be working ON the processes, too. In this workshop, participants will learn how to:  Identify areas for improvement  Generate new ideas for better ways of working  Engage people to implement changes that work  Manage and communicate changes effectively. The workshop format combines lectures (in English) with practical, hands-on exercises and a mini- project. Participants will lead small teams and participate in lively discussions in our learning laboratory environment. Simple, creative, and practical solutions are encouraged. This intensive, week-long workshop is perfect for:  Young professionals—technical and non-technical--who can incorporate these fundamentals into their skill set from the beginning of their careers  New supervisors and managers who want to enhance their skills in process and project management  Anyone who wants to increase their potential within their organization. Our active, energizing workshops are designed for professionals who want to be leaders of change, rather than fearful followers. A few things that make Camponovo workshops different:  Demonstrated mastery: Participants complete a real-world mini-project and present results within the 5-day course.  An international environment: Participants will increase their practical experience working and presenting in English.  Our commitment to success: After the workshop, participants are eligible for a follow-up coaching /consulting session on applying these tools in their organization.* *Provided by phone or on-site at the participant’s location Align.
