What It Really Takes to Be a Successful Manager - ASTD-SCC Jan 23 Meeting

What It Really Takes to Be a Successful Manager

American Society for Training & Development - Southern CT chapter meeting (ASTD-SCC)
Monday, Jan 23, 2012, 5:45 - 8 PM

Attend this lively, thought-provoking presentation on what differentiates exceptional managers from average ones.  OnPoint Consulting President Rick Lepsinger, a leadership and organizational development expert, will brief us on a study designed to validate the American Management Association’s (AMA) management competency model.
Research tells us that managers are more critical to retention of key talent than any other factor. You can’t afford to miss this opportunity to find out:
  • Are you developing the right competencies in your organization?
  • What really makes the difference between average performance and excellence in management?
Rick Lepsinger has a 30-year track record of success as a human resource consultant and executive.   His work has focused on helping leaders and organizations close the gap between strategy and execution, work effectively in a matrix organization and operate in a virtual environment.  He has co-authored five books and numerous articles on leadership and organizational effectiveness.  His most recent books are Closing the Execution Gap:  How Great Leaders and their Companies Get Results and Virtual Team Success: a Practical Guide for Working and Leading from a Distance.  Rick presented this work at the 2009 National ASTD conference.
