Young Professionals Network - Leading Without a Title

When:  Sep 25, 2018 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (ET)


We are pleased to announce the launch of our Young Professionals Network in the GTA!


You are personally invited to attend the exclusive first event, when we're partnering with the Human Resource Professional Association (HRPA) for a special presentation and networking evening. 


CMC-Canada has established a partnership with the HRPA to provide respective members enhanced member value, facilitation of professional development events, the opportunity for relationship building and thought leadership with peers. 


Leading Without A Title

Gone are the days when the 'Manager' title implied an ability to tell people what to do and those people would jump. Gone are the days where individual contributors didn’t have a leadership stake or presence in organizations, but were order-takers. 


With the evolution of the term 'Leadership', emerging leaders are being tasked with leading their organizations in a way they never have before.  Whether you lead a team of people or lead a function, the concept of leadership remains the same: How can you add to your organization’s success? How can you help drive results? How can you get the best out of yourself and others?


This practical and hands-on session focuses specifically on how to build your leadership brand and create a legacy where you inspire and engage others and yourself, while transforming your organization in remarkable ways.


Learning Objectives:

  • Decipher the difference between the concepts of leading and managing;
  • Identify key behaviours that allow you to be a successful leader;
  • Define the concept of servant leadership and how to live it daily;
  • Recognize the key elements of building trust and credibility; and
  • Determine strategies for engaging yourself and others to increase your personal leadership brand and effectiveness as a leader.
