ABOUT THE LECTURE: Dr. Albright, author of the book, The Complete Guide to Conflict Resolution in the Workplace, will lead this insightful and timely presentation. He will discuss how action, communication, humor, and attitude contribute to effective, inspiring leadership. Learn how you can successfully lead your team or organization through this tough recession and emerge united, focused, and ready for new challenges. Leadership is never more important than it is during difficult times. Leaders must pay close attention to:
• The nature of the messages being communicated to the workforce.
• Inspiring a focus on short-term goals, and communicating to the workforce that they have the ability to achieve success.
• The strategic use of “humor” which can also play an important role in maintaining the organizational stamina needed to persevere during hard times.
• Their words and actions which can inspire the essential “teamwork” that prevents organizations from disintegrating when events disrupt team cohesiveness and purpose.
