Arizona MEP Leadership Academy - Take Your Career to the Next Level

 

The Arizona Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Arizona MEP) and Eller Executive Education have partnered together to develop the first-of-its-kind series of courses called the Arizona Manufacturing Extension Partnership’s Leadership Academy. This academy was strategically designed for Arizona manufacturing leaders who typically send others to training to have a place they can go to take their own career to the next level.

 

Driving Strategic Communication Within Manufacturing

 

Continued and long-term success in a manufacturing organization can be attributed to those leaders who build strong relationships with others. Leaders need to be able to connect and engage others across the organization. Understanding how to navigate across functional areas of a business enterprise is critical to driving successful messaging and having greater impact. Navigating rapid growth and change can necessitate the need to move from "taking orders" to thinking strategically and driving communications as a valued partner. This session equips leaders to connect and engage audiences with different areas of need and interest while building one's own personal communication style.

 

ATTENDING THIS SESSION WILL EMPOWER LEADERS TO:

• Actively listen and seek insights into needs and goals

• Connect with audiences across business functions

• Recognize and explore fluency across channels

 

Time:  8:00 AM - 4:00 PM 

Cost:  $695.00 per person (includes lunch)

SPECIAL AFTERNOON SESSIONS!

 

Many manufacturing employees are promoted from operators to lead and supervisor positions but are not given / taught the soft skills to succeed. Sometimes the result is not only the loss of a good operator by moving them into the leadership role, but if that employee struggles in their new role it can cause dissatisfaction for that employee and the employees who they are responsible for leading. Ultimately that can lead to employee turnover.

 

This program will consist of 7 essential classes for new leaders. The course will be delivered in 4 hour increments, one-time per month, April - October, 2023. The topics are listed below along with class dates. To view the course descriptions download the flyer using the link below.
