Here's a nice opportunity for you to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and experience garnered by a long-time public works leader and former APWA Board member. Leadership in the public sector has its own challenges and approaches. Come to this session and learn about the role of emotional intelligence in successful leadership; strategies for leading successful change efforts; and what it means to "manage from the middle."

Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, you will be better able to: 

  • Define the difference between leadership and management.
  • Apply strategies for "leading from the middle."
  • Evaluate your organization culture and the results from your risk assessments and implement tactics for strategic leadership.
