Frederick, MD (PRWEB) April 12, 2010
Leadership Techniques LLC, an agency offering customizable leadership and project management seminars, today announced their inaugural session. The event, which includes presentations and hands-on workshops, will be held on Thursday, May 6, 2010 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm at the Creekside Conference Center in Frederick, MD. The focus of the day will be techniques and methods that can be immediately applied to specific situations that managers typically face.
David Newman, PMP, a Principal and Partner at Leadership Techniques noted that many people are promoted into positions of leadership because they excel within their expertise. What is needed and often lacking is the recognition that this new position requires new skills, tools, and techniques. Management should ensure that their front-line leaders are trained and ready for their new responsibilities. Doing this can have a dramatic impact on the company’s bottom line.
Newman’s partner, Co-founder and Principal Lisa Hammer, is a seasoned professional with over 30 years of executive management experience. “Our program is unique because we are experienced managers who love our work and have a passion for sharing our knowledge!"
Newman, a Project Management Institute certified Project Management Professional (PMP), holds a Master of Science in Technical Management from Johns Hopkins University. He states: “I have always loved engineering and mathematics because answers can be proven. You can emulate, simulate, and test your solutions. When it comes to managing people a completely different perspective must be undertaken. Managers need to be empathetic and yet drive toward the results that are needed.”
Newman concluded, “Leadership Techniques focuses on techniques for conflict resolution, problem solving and project status evaluation that yield accurate answers for reliable decision making. We are striving to take the guesswork out of the management process”
