Business Leader Development Program:
Fall 2022 Seminar
Leadership Strategies: The Many Faces of HR
Instructor: Professor Jerry Dropcho
Leading and managing human resources is imperative in today’s business environment. We will take a deep dive into the many facets that contribute to a successful career and help to develop you as a leader of people. Human Resources adds value in many ways, from reducing costs through benefits planning, workforce planning to ensure the right people are in the right positions, to knowing yourself and your strengths, weaknesses, and your ability to work with others. We will look at humor and storytelling as a tool for strengthening relationships and building morale; what makes a good manager versus a good leader and why both are necessary; and developing networking skills necessary in today’s business world.
