YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A couple dozen local business managers got a lesson in leadership Friday.
A seminar at ITT Technical Institute was presented by representatives of the Columbus-based consulting group Transformational Leadership. The program is focused on helping business executives, supervisors and managers improve their leadership style as well as the environment in the workplace.
Conference speaker Tim Figley presented the group with suggestions to help guide employees and build team-based organizations willing to embrace change.
“We are talking about casting a vision for a leader. We are talking about how to create change and how to get people to buy into that change,” Figley said. “We call it encouraging the heart. We look at modeling leaders first then inspire a shared vision.”
Those taking part in the seminar can sign up for further one-on-one sessions to fine tune what they’ve learned.
