Career Collaborations and Team Leadership Strategies

Free tickets are available here.

Not that long ago, professional achievement came from following the playbook passed on from generation to generation, putting your head down, logging the hours, and pledging your loyalty to one company for your entire 40+ year career.

That plan of attack no longer works.

Today success comes from consistently sharpening your skills, building and nurturing your community, taking ownership of your professional development, and being ready to adapt and react to whatever comes your way.

During this interactive workshop, you'll learn collaboration strategies, team leadership principles and start applying them through group discussion. Bring a laptop, tablet or an old fashioned notebook and get ready to advance your career through leadership development!

Overview: During this event Baily will share steps of how to collaborate effectively to grow your career and leadership skills.

What You’ll Take Away: Each attendee will walk away with an outline and next steps for their current career development strategy.

Why It Matters: Career longevity doesn't exist anymore. In order to succeed professionally you need to stay flexible, adapt and pivot when necessary as a leader. This workshop will show you the blueprint for how to do that.
