Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
UGL Services, a division of UGL Limited (ASX: UGL), and APPA, the Virginia-based organization known for its leadership in educational facilities, today announced that Randy Ledbetter, Vice President, Business Development at UGL Services, has been named to the faculty of the APPA Leadership Academy and is also a member of the APPA Thought Leadership Committee.
The purpose of The Leadership Academy is to enhance and further develop leadership skills of facilities staff, buyers/purchasing agents, business/finance professionals, and auxiliary services professionals throughout the educational industry. The Leadership Academy provides opportunities for professionals to increase their awareness of industry issues, to learn the skills necessary to handle today's changes, and to discover their leadership potential.
Ledbetter is teaching “Gaining Approval – Developing a Win Strategy,” a workshop and case study session under the Organizational Effectiveness Skills track. The session helps facility managers conceptualize strategies to develop and communicate compelling reasons why decision makers should approve proposed ideas.
Held in Hilton Head, South Carolina, the first instance of the class was taught in late January and will be repeated at subsequent Leadership Academies.
“Randy is a valuable addition to the Leadership Academy faculty,” said Lander Medlin APPA Executive Vice President. “Being from the business community, he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge on collaborative decision making. Yet, his long association with APPA enables him to apply this expertise to educational institutions.”
