Interested in developing your leadership skills?  DRMA’s Young Professionals Committee has partnered with the University of Dayton’s Center for Leadership to offer a series of courses that will do just that!

DRMA and the UD Center of Leadership are offering the following courses for 2019:

Going from Peer to Supervisor – Thursday, May 2, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

This is a high-energy, interactive workshop which guides participants through the transformation from individual contributor to leader. Through small group exercises, group discussion and role playing, we will explore the strategies, behaviors and critical interactions that help assure an easier transition through this essential rite of passage for those who want to advance into management.

 This Program Will Help Leaders:

  • Understand the issues and challenges of transitioning into a supervisory role
  • Address how to handle some of the common challenges presented to new supervisors.
  • Become equipped to manage self and team through transition. 

Communication Skills for Leaders – Wednesday, August 28, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Your communication with co-workers, direct reports, supervisors, and customers makes a powerful statement about you and your organization. Is your writing getting the results you desire while furthering your professional ‘brand’? Are your messages crafted specifically to the medium you’re using and the audience you’re targeting? Both verbally and in writing, you need to be clear, concise, and easily understood. This session will provide proven methods and practice in engaging your audience, motivating action, and increasing your credibility in today’s fast-paced, demanding work places.

 This Program Will Help Leaders:

  • Gain tips to establish goodwill and motivate audience action.
  • Learn how to organize content of written messages and presentations strategically for optimal audience engagement.
  • Increase your presentation confidence through audience analysis and strategic preparation.

Embracing Accountability – Tuesday, September 10, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Accountability is a serious business. Nothing wastes more time and money than a lack of accountability. In today’s workplace, the concept of accountability has taken center stage as a vital business concern. When employees take ownership for the success or failure of tasks, projects or initiatives, then an environment of trust, alignment, communication and accountability can be created. You will learn how to create an environment of ownership for your results that creates clear agreements, execution on plans and success for your team and you.

 This Program Will Help Leaders:

  • Learn a clearer, constructive approach to accountability and how it contributes to individual responsibility, empowerment and better results.
  • Evaluate the frequency and consistency of their own accountability behaviors, and determine actions to better model and inspire more accountability throughout their teams.
  • Work with hands-on tools, which will dramatically help you and your team embrace and demonstrate more accountability for expected deliverables.

The price is $390 per course, per person. NEW this year: individuals who complete three of the four courses will be awarded a DRMA professional development certificate!
