K-State Leadership Seminar registration now open

By Debbie Hagenmaier

Registration is now open for the 20th annual K-State Leadership Seminar on March 23 in the K-State Student Union.

"Overcoming Leaderstress: Leading From Where You Are" is this year's seminar theme and reflects the belief that everyone is a leader, regardless of title or position, and that we encounter daily opportunities for leadership in the workplace.

Stress is an unavoidable, inevitable aspect of leadership. Managed properly, stress can lead to personal and professional fulfillment and accomplishment. Managed ineffectively, stress can result in fatigue, burnout, conflict, chaos and lack of career or personal satisfaction. This year's seminar focus on work-life balance addresses a critical issue affecting everyone in the workplace.

Seminar keynote and breakout sessions will equip participants with effective, hands-on strategies for recognizing and managing stress. Keynote presenters include Timothy Hatfield, professor emeritus from Winona State University; Frank Tracz, professor of music and director of bands at K-State; and JoAnn Owens-Nauslar, health and wellness expert and a former educator and administrator.

Registration is $95 or $90 per person for teams of three or more participants from the same department. March 2 is the early registration deadline.

Registration, agenda and other information can be found on the K-State Leadership Seminar's website.

The purpose of the K-State Leadership Seminar is to give participants:

  • Practical, hands-on information and tools.
  • Best practices for effective leadership.
  • Inspiration to exercise leadership when it really counts.
  • An idea of where to go for additional leadership resources.
  • A connection to others who are working to grow their leadership skills.
