Career Coaching and Executive Leadership – A Virtual Roundtable and Panel Discussion

January 11, 2023 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

The Florida LTAP Center is pleased to partner with the American Public Works Association (APWA) Florida Chapter to bring you this webinar.

Organizations have long invested in top-down leadership training for the highest-ranking members of the team. By doing it this way, agencies traditionally miss a critical opportunity to cultivate leadership at all levels within an organization. Accepting that most individuals are tasked with leading in some capacity while simultaneously answering to the managers who outrank them, can help steer the paradigm shift.

This session will explore how to navigate the politics of leadership both when you are and aren’t the boss or manager. Come and learn about the critical skills of distinguishing between power and authority to avoid common pitfalls. Ask our industry experts about how to make your mark and be persuasive even when you are carrying out the visions and decisions of those above you. Secondly, for the aspiring managers, learn what leadership soft skills and executive mantras are likely to help get you climbing that management pyramid.

Guest Agency and Speaker Panelists:

  1. Marcela C. Millett, Strategic Planning & Performance Management Division, Palm Beach County, Florida
  2. Sandy Benz, Florida, Leadership and Team Coach, Benz Team Solutions, Florida

Moderator/Panelist: Addie Javed, APWA FL Leadership & Management Committee Chair
