Learning Objective: Learn how to efficiently lead employees in a technology-driven world, define your personal leadership style, and develop your leadership skills to make better career choices

Leading others can be challenging and is often even more so in a tech-driven environment. These leaders see beyond the initial problem and look at the systems as a method for developing a solution. Today’s successful leaders must have both the ideas and the know-how to put these ideas into action by working collaboratively with others. We need leaders who can network on a larger scale, seize opportunities, and deliver financial profits while adding positive contributions to the corporate world.

At the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:

a. Recognize what traits are needed to be a successful leader in a tech-centered world.
b. Identify desirable strategies for leaders in a tech-driven environment.
c. Explore their own leadership style through conversations with their peers.
