Getting your C-Legs: Live at a Strategic Level 
March 18, 2016
9:00 a.m. - Noon
MD|DC CUA - Columbia, MD

Transitioning from being a stellar performer who is great at managing people, projects and resources to the C-suite is a natural progression in most leaders’ careers. However, the skills that made you a top performing manager are different than those required of an effective C-suite leader. As an executive in your organization, regardless of the three initials in your title, you need to be constantly looking up and out, managing relationships and focusing on your organizations envisioned future. In this session, you’ll learn how to live every day at a strategic level, let go of time taking tasks and how to lead your team by articulating clear purpose and vision. This topic is ideal for newly promoted executives and those who have been in the C-suite for years but want to be more forward-focused. You’ll leave this session with actionable ideas that will help you stay the strategic course and navigate the choppy waters of the C-suite.
