March Emerging Leaders: Is Management Right for Me?
Join the Minneapolis Regional Chamber's Emerging Leaders for a fun evening of networking and discussion on whether management is right for you. Many young professionals are eager to get put on the management track because it is often seen as the expected career path for anyone who wants to be successful. The truth is, management is not for everyone and there are other options.
There are many bad managers in the workforce, and it is considered the #1 reason people quit their jobs. The skills required to be a good manager are independent from the skills required to be a good individual contributor. Many people who are exceptional in their individual contributor roles are promoted to management without knowing if they will enjoy it or be good at it. Without proper leadership experience and management training, a newly promoted manager is not set up for success. The key is understanding your career path options, your strengths and weaknesses, what you like and don't like about your job, and your career goals.
This event will start with a brief presentation on career path options and what it takes to be a good manager followed by a diverse panel of successful young professionals to share the lessons they have learned on their management journey. This event is specifically intended for young professionals looking for opportunities to develop themselves as leaders in the workplace. Registration includes complimentary appetizers. Drinks will be available for purchase.
