    Rogue Valley SHRM Chapter Presents:

          Leadership Development: Be Effective Without Being the Bad Guy (or Girl)

    Are you an effective and inspirational leader, or the workplace babysitter? Does your team respect you as an authority figure, or do they see you more as their peer?  Who runs your workplace – you or your employees?  Your ability to communicate clear expectations directly impacts the results you can achieve, and you know it isn’t nearly as easy as it sounds. Misunderstandings, gossip, disengaged employees and your decisions regarding enforcement of the rules all play a large part in team dynamics. The reality is that team dysfunction is destructive on many levels, and a heavy burden rests upon your shoulders if you are ultimately responsible for the results of that team. If you are ready to take back control of your team, this program is for you! Join us as we explore the differences between being a leader and a boss and how to transition from peer to supervisor or buddy to boss. We will also discuss how to strategically set boundaries, communicate expectations clearly, curb workplace gossip, and become a more strategically effective leader. Positive change starts here. Let’s move forward together!
