Lunch and Learn
Ivy Tech Corporate College is proud to host a monthly lunch and learn activity. The targeted series will address issues that affect employers today. Sessions are held the fourth Tuesday of the month at our Liberty Crossing location. Lunch is provided.
Communicating for Leadership Success
Presenter: Devta Kidd
Organizations need leaders who can do more and be more in order to succeed in today's complex environment. They need frontline leaders with strong interpersonal skills who can get things done by mobilizing and engaging others.
This foundation course for most Interaction Management® courses helps leaders communicate effectively so they can spark action in others. The course teaches leaders the interaction essentials they need to handle the variety of challenges and opportunities they encounter every day in the workplace and beyond.
Recently, Ivy Tech entered into a partnership with Development Dimensions International (DDI).
DDI is a recognized leader in the areas of talent management, employee needs assessment, leadership development, and workforce performance management. The company provides challenging and results oriented learning experiences at all organizational levels from entry level employees to mid-level managers to senior executives. Many of the sessions are approved for HRCI recertification credits!
To learn more, the Corporate College is planning a taste of "Communicating for Leadership Success" at our April Lunch & Learn. Save the date on your calendar by planning now to attend this informative session.
