 APPLE: Leadership – Session I
March 30
Leadership vs. Management –What’s the Difference?
With Katie Rigsby
Does being a manager automatically make you a leader? Does a leader have to be a good manager? Does being a leader mean you are in charge? This session provides an in-depth look at the attributes of both effective leadership and productive management. Participants will leave with the tools to empower team members and the knowledge to successfully manage a leadership role. Key takeaways include:
• Recognize the differences between a leader and manager and the importance of being both

July 18
Stop the Invasion of the Warm Body Snatchers
(How to Recruit & Interview)
With Donna Olson
Ever been guilty of filling a position with a “warm body?” Learn the knowledge and skills to enable improved employee selection by developing effective recruiting strategies, establishing hiring criteria/checklists for open positions and asking specific questions to get the information you need for the right hire.

APPLE : Leadership – Session 3
October 25
Making the Move from Peer to Supervisor
With Sue Weston
Intended for aspiring and new managers, the sessions begins with a “how you are perceived” assessment and then talk about the typical company response to your promotion. The transition from strong performer to manager is often unsupported and misunderstood. Former teammates are confused and even confrontational. Leadership may assume too much and be distant. Too many times it ends in dissatisfaction and poor results. This workshop provides the tips and tools for a successful transition for the newly-ascended supervisor.
Learn how to:
• Move from tactical to strategic thinking
• Separate personal from professional relationships
• Delegate to and defend a team of former peers
• Use humor and camaraderie to support, not undermine, your new role
• Ask for help
• Measure your own success
