In this one hour webinar, learn how the Design Thinking framework can help you, the modern marketer and communicator, create and launch more innovative solutions to building brands and driving action. While many marketers and communicators tend to compartmentalize design as a separate function, it's critical that we shift the paradigm within the industry — recognizing that design is more of mindset than a department. Learn how you can apply the principles and practices of design thinking to deliver more relevant marketing and communications solutions, realized earlier.

The elusive world of management is something we are never formally taught, yet expected to know and master throughout our careers. The shift from individual contributor to manager of people is both an exciting and overwhelming milestone in one’s career. As we grow within an organization, we are expected to have management skills in our toolkit. We often wonder, “If I’m not the one actually doing the work, then what am I supposed to be doing every day?”

Part 1 of this 4-part Management Bootcamp will focus on you – the mindset of management and how to make the shift from being recognized for what you do to being recognized for how you serve and support others to success. We will discuss both the art and science of letting go in a way that feels authentic and valued.

The topics we will cover throughout the series include: managing down, managing up, dealing with difficult personalities, navigating difficult conversations, giving / receiving feedback, how to coach someone to success, time / energy balance, and more.

The Presenter:
Valia Glytsis is CEO and Founder of The Paradox of Leadership, a boutique leadership education firm based in New York City and serving clients globally. As an Executive coach, trainer, and speaker, Valia works with leaders and organizations that yearn for a more meaningful and impactful way of working, communicating, and leading.

The only constant in the legal profession has been change: change in everything from firm business and compensation models to client relationships and billing practices, not to mention the ever accelerating pace of technological change.

Law schools often do an effective job of preparing lawyers for the practice of law, but they do not always provide their students and young alumni with the practical marketing, business, and other skills necessary for a fulfilling and successful legal career. The need for experienced lawyers to provide advice and mentoring to law students and young lawyers is critical to their success.

We invite you to join Curtis Romig (C'94), Partner at Bryan Cave, as he offers the benefit of his two decades of experience in the legal profession, including what he wished he had known about the practice and business of law while he was in law school and when he was a younger lawyer. His perspective includes:

-Having been in private practice before, during, and after the dot.com boom and the Great Recession
-Serving as his firm’s Atlanta hiring partner for three years
-Being involved in the recruiting, training and mentoring of young lawyers
-Assisting his firm with risk management issues.

Curtis has seen the legal profession in good times and bad, and has seen his original firm go through two significant combinations with other law firms.

Though managers must be competent in a broad array of analytical skills such as marketing and operations, they must complement their expertise with negotiation and influence skills. Displaying an expert understanding in these areas will not only help smooth internal dynamics, they also help managers bargain with external actors—competitors, suppliers, customers, and regulators.

To deepen your understanding of the bargaining process and sophisticated techniques for achieving your goals, join Professor Catherine Tinsley to understand how:

•To develop confidence in using negotiation as a tool to help you get what you want.
•To reevaluate your notions of when and why people negotiate.
•To understand the central strategies and tactics of negotiation.
•To improve your ability to analyze the behavior and motives of others.
•To diagnose situational factors and how they will influence the negotiation process.

Incorporating findings from economics, psychology, sociology, and game theory, Tinsley will build a conceptual framework for understanding most negotiation situations.

Catherine Tinsley, Ph.D., is a Professor of Management at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, Executive Director of the Georgetown University Women’s Leadership Institute, Academic Director of Georgetown McDonough’s Executive Master’s in Leadership program, and a Senior Policy Scholar at McDonough’s Center for Business and Public Policy. Tinsley is an expert on the gender pay gap, gender dynamics in the workplace, and interventions to promote women's leadership. She recently participated in The World Economic Forum’s 2015 annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland where she took part in the Women’s Economic Empowerment discussion, as a primary investigator on the subject of “Women and Confidence.” In 2012 and 2013, she partnered with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to study a decade of gender in the C-suite—researching how women fared relative to men in publicly traded companies from 2000-2010

Dean Brenner (C'91), is the President and Founder of The Latimer Group, an executive coaching and training firm focused on persuasive communication skills. After two bad career experiences, Dean and his wife Emily took six months off to travel, clear their heads, and plot their next move. Throughout the trip, they discussed a range of ideas, most of them impractical, before finally realizing a vision they wanted to move towards. While hiking in Glacier National Park, Emily said the magic words… "You have always been a good public speaker. Most people aren't. Just coach that."

And from that, The Latimer Group was born. Today the company serves a global client base of Fortune 500 organizations, with nearly $1 million in annual revenue.

In this session, Dean will share some insights about starting a business, germinating the idea, marketing and networking, relying on the advice and counsel of others, and risk (when to take it, and when to avoid it).

If you're considering starting a business or are already a full-time owner but making plans for growth, don't miss learning from Dean's entrepreneurial journey!
