Course Description

SBE has presented the SBE Leadership Development Course since 1997 (NAB sponsored this course from 1965 to 1995). This intense course is designed specifically for broadcast engineers who have or aspire to have management responsibilities. SBE offers the course in cooperation with instructor Rodney Vandeveer, a professional leadership and management trainer and a professor of Organizational Leadership and Supervision at Purdue University.

When asked about taking the SBE Leadership Development Course, Robbie Winter, CTO, CBT, said " I learned more about myself in three days than I have in the last 30 years!”

Designed to take technically-adept people and instill in them sound leadership, supervisory and management skills, the SBE Leadership Development Course is equally beneficial for those who are already in management and for those without prior management or supervisory experience.

This highly interactive course will be challenging and rewarding, and includes training in the following areas:

  • Understanding the Dynamics of Leadership
  • CAPS Study: Discover Your Leadership Behavioral Style
  • Communications
  • Effective Motivation Techniques
  • Building Winning Teams (team process and team advantage)
  • Responsible Management
  • Insights into Generational Differences
  • Leadership is an Attitude
  • Managing Conflict, Counseling and Discipline

                                                                                 

This three-day event challenges you to refine your leadership skills as you better understand and improve how you interact with others. Bring a team and share the experience of this highly interactive event.  Come, enjoy, learn and have some fun growing as a leader in the process.
