Maher Kicks-off Disruption by Design Masterclass for GSETA: February 22 Session Starts 5-event Series.

Posted Feb 20, 2023 by Rick

AHC President Richard “Rick” Maher will lead a leadership training series for the Garden State Employment and Training Association (GSETA) this week. Based on our Disruption by Design leadership model, the Series will explore the “Six Traits of Agile Organizations” in detail with leaders from New Jersey’s workforce development system. The Series starts this Wednesday, February 22, with session 1 – “Transformational Leadership: The Power of Shared Vision.”

The Masterclass Workshop Series has been designed as a natural follow-up on the session Maher did at last Fall's GSETA State Conference session entitled "The Six Traits of Agile Organizations and the Leaders Who Lead Them." While attendance at that session is not required as a pre-requisite, this Series will "drill down" on skills/concepts introduced at the Conference and help folks apply new leadership skills to managing themselves and others through change and uncertainty.

The topics in the series are aligned with the six traits of agile organizational culture as they appear in the research: Transformational Leadership, High Organizational Justice (trust), Positive Communications, Participatory Management, Social Support, and Group Engagement.

This series of virtual workshops will help participants recognize and assess their strengths and areas for professional development and develop skills to help them better lead themselves and others through change. Interested parties can learn more at GSETA’s website.
