Building Next-Gen Leadership workshop adds additional session May 16

Submitted by Human Resources

The Building Next-Gen Leadership series has two remaining sessions for its second topic, Impact: Closing the Gap. Any employee across the institution who aspires to lead, regardless of position or title, is invited to participate in May. The last two sessions hope to reach as many employees as possible, with one in-person session on the Manhattan campus and one virtual for employees who can't attend in person. Registration is required

Workshop description: Leadership revolves around challenges. But what happens when we struggle with how to make progress on those challenges? This workshop will explore what makes it tough to close the gap between where we currently find ourselves and where we want to be. Once we understand that gap, we can then determine what leadership needs to look like to create a lasting impact.  

In-person session 
Monday, May 13
11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. 
Town Hall at the Leadership Studies Building 
Lunch provided 
Virtual session
Thursday, May 16 
3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.  

The series is facilitated by Amanda Cebula, adjunct instructor at K-State's Staley School of Leadership and former director of project and business development at the Kansas Leadership Center, where she co-authored the book "Your Leadership Edge: Tools and Strategies for When Everyone Leads." She received her bachelor's degree in communication studies from K-State, with minors in music and leadership studies. She also earned a master's degree in management and leadership from Webster University. 

After the May workshop, the series will take a break for the summer and then pick up again with four additional topics in the fall. In the meanwhile, check out the Building Next-Gen Leadership page for more information.
