February 28, 3pm The “I” In Team (Thomas Wilk)

Join Thomas Wilk as he walks through his journey to becoming an effective leader of individuals and building better teams. Being a manager does not mean you can lead a team. Managers are often never properly trained for the responsibility of becoming a leader. True leadership is a never ending experience of personal and professional evolution and does not happen overnight. Even when the desire to lead and help others exists, it can take decades to develop methodology that works for you and those you lead. In this webinar, he shares experiences and insight through real-world challenges that eventually led to improvement and success in his own experience as a manager. He will share ways you can help struggling members of your team, how to have tough conversations with a positive focus, helping create the professional “rock star” by harnessing their individuality, and helping employees advance by creating a unique career plan. Finally, he will discuss ways individuals can truly become part of a collective, moving forward as a team and not just people who work together. In sharing his own experiences and having an honest conversation about how to re- approach who we are as leaders, you can walk away with new tools and a perspective on individual development as the essential foundation of a great team.
Thomas Wilk is an IT Manager at Carnegie Mellon University. Helping people grow as an employee or a manager is his passion.
