HURRICANE FLORENCE UPDATE - Friday, September 21, 2018
Thank you for your continued patience while NASBP works through the details of rescheduling the 2018 Leadership Workshop that had been scheduled immediately following the NASBP Region 8, 9, 10 & 11 Annual Meeting in Charleston, SC. Unfortunately, we were not able to reschedule the workshop for Charleston this fall, but we are working on rescheduling the Leadership Workshop for next fall 2019. Please look for more information from NASBP in the coming days regarding the possible rescheduled dates and location and information on refunds for registration fees.
The NASBP Leadership Workshop will focus on leading across generations in the surety industry. This focus is especially important in today's world as for the first time in recent history, there are three generations in the workforce. This unique circumstance requires managers to be keenly aware of the needs, motivations, styles, and desires of each employee. What will motivate one group in many cases may be in conflict with the needs of another group. Managers must know how to effectively interact not only with the Millennial generation but with the X-ers and Boomers as well. Leading Across the Generations will assist the manager in becoming more effective as a manager and leader with the multi-generational workforce. The workshop will include breakout sessions applicable to those who have taken past leadership workshops with NASBP as well those aspiring leaders that are looking for a leg up.
The registration fee is $399 for NASBP members, affiliates, and associates, and there is a special discount for NASBP's 5-15 Leadership Committee and SFAA's Young Professionals (who are NASBP Affiliate Members).
