WILLIAMSPORT — High-performing individuals are often tapped for leadership roles with little or no training in effective leadership.
The Quick Start Leadership program, presented by Workforce Development & Continuing Education at Pennsylvania College of Technology, assists those launching leadership careers and facilitates leadership teams by presenting common approaches to issues leaders may face.
The noncredit program, which consists of two training sessions, includes information on transitioning into your new leadership role, understanding and developing your leadership style, communicating critical job information, and performing legally and ethically.
The sessions will run from 7:30 a.m. to noon on May 29 and June 5 at the Center for Business & Workforce Development on the college’s main campus in Williamsport. The program can also be customized and delivered at employer locations.
Instructor Eric Bergstrom is an experienced leader of organization development, human resource management and manufacturing/operations management with more than 20 years of industry experience. He holds a Ph.D. in workforce education and development from Penn State University, as well as master’s and bachelor’s degrees in training and development.
