Are you managing or leading? What’s the difference?:
‘Managers do things right, leaders do the right thing.  We need both.’… Warren Bennis. Are you a manager or a leader, and how do you know? Which is better for your business? In fact, both skills sets are needed: leadership to set the vision, and management to execute. This workshop encourages you to take a look inward to examine what your business needs BOTH in terms of leadership and management, and how you can take the first steps toward meeting those needs.

Facilitator: Dr. Michael Peters
Dr Peters has a long history in Leadership, having served in various high-level leadership positions in the Royal Canadian Air Force and in Information Operations positions in the US. Holding a Doctorate of Strategic Leadership from Regent University, Dr Peters has extensive experience in developing collaborative teams, removing barriers and resolving complex issues in operations that cross governmental, legal, cultural, policy, and capability boundaries.
