WHAT IS THE RETREAT?
The Retreat is an annual update on emerging trends in talent management, recruitment & learning. Attendance is kept to around 25 who participate in interactive conversations on emerging topics. It is led by faculty who are innovative, research-oriented, and able to challenge traditional thinking. One of the primary goals of the Retreat is to help you build and expand your network of senior level peers. There are formal group activities as well as lots of time to have a glass of wine, a meal, or just chat. This is a highly interactive, hands-on event where participants contribute and learn from each other as well as the faculty.

If you know how to get stuff done and lead a project team it may not be enough for you to become, or be perceived, as a leader. Managers tend to be task focused, while leaders are human-centered focused requiring a different skills sets: emotional and intuitive intelligence, motivating others, and turning what others may see as conflict and hindrances into opportunities.
STEM professionals are highly educated, effective, motivated, and ambitious people, who work hard to achieve success, yet are frequently frustrated and stuck by what I call “the get it done” dilemma. Those who get it done are passed over or do not create new opportunities for themselves because they are not perceived as “strategic” or “people persons”. Read on to see how to rethink what it means for a manager to become a leader.
