What it Takes to Be an Effective Leader (Hosted by Women in OR/MS)

WORMS invites all attendees to join this special session presentation. The transition from individual contributor to people leader is often unnecessarily painful, and learning how to be an effective leader takes practice. During this session we will talk about the skills necessary to become a successful leader from delegation to setting boundaries, providing impactful feedback to managing up. We will learn how to “Fill our Cups” to become comfortable with the uncomfortable and realize we are right where we are supposed to be. This session is applicable to everyone, regardless of where you are in your career. Session attendees will have an opportunity to sign up for a 1-1 coaching session later in the day.
