Wednesday, May 18, 2016 2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Gary Magenta, Chief Change Architect, Root

The classic role of a manager is to direct processes, projects, and people. Yet behind all that is the part of their role that is the real game changer for your business. The art of engaging and inspiring people is what separates everyday managers from true leaders. Join us for part two of our Manager Makeover Series with author and transformation expert Gary Magenta. Go behind the scenes with a new manager as Gary helps him move from managing the mundane to inspiring change. We’ll answer these questions:

  • What prevents managers from inspiring change?
  • Why do managers need to see themselves as CEOs (chief engagement officers) and how does that affect your bottom line?
  • What three things matter most to transform your managers to inspire change?
