Presenter Ron Alexander will use the 3 hour program to discuss the challenges faced by those in leadership roles. “The idea behind Mr. Alexander’s entire series is that leadership is an activity, not just a position,” said Bartley, “A key component in a good leader is the ability to diagnose the situation, manage their own actions within that situation, energize and engage others, and to intervene when intervention is necessary.”

While the HCC generally works with those in the medical field, this program is open to all people in any industry, but there is a key audience that is expected to gain the most from the training. “It is designed for someone who is in middle management and sees some potential to move into a leadership position, but feels like they need a stronger foundation, “said Bartley, “Or perhaps someone who has now been promoted into a a leadership position, but feels like they’re struggling.”

The training session will be held on August 6th from noon to 3:00 p.m. at the HCC in Lexington. Those planning to attend the free event are asked to pre-register no later than August 1st by contacting the HCC at 660-259-2440.
