Summary : Leading IT security or CyberSecurity? It’s hard, right? We ask them to go left, and they go right. We need them to apply a patch, code a change, or configure a secure setting. And they don’t, or won’t, or worse yet say it’s done when it’s not. People are hard. Level Up Your Leadership is a 4-hour training designed to make it easier. The session will equip you with the tools and hacks needed to become more effective at getting people to get things done. We discuss coaching essentials, giving and receiving feedback, emotional intelligence, empathy in the workplace, and professional presence. Once the hacks and tools are covered, we’ll have opportunities to practice these skills with peers. Hands on, while hands off. If nothing else, come for the anecdotes and war stories, humor and learning. It’ll be a good time. This training is appropriate for individuals currently in leadership roles as well as those who aspire to move into leadership in the future.
