In addition, attendees examine best practices of effective managers and leaders.
Broadening Organizational Perspectives: Enhancing understanding of:
How strategic decisions are made by employers
How to position industrial hygiene and safety issues relative to their organization’s key business priorities
How to increase their scope of influence and better position their contributions
Collaborative/Teamwork Efforts: Examining the key components of successful teams and collaborative efforts and the specific actions leaders must perform to make them effective. Learning how to more effectively manage conflicts and differences of perspectives.
Managing Your Future: Exploring personal and professional aspirations and the possible career pathways that will support them, how to advance within one’s organization and the profession, and how to build an effective network of mentors and peers.
