On June 15, 2016 GAIOP held its second workshop of 2016, Developing the Midlevel Leader:  Horizontal and Vertical Leadership Development.  Co-presenters Wanda Hayes, Senior Director of Learning & Organizational Development at Emory University and Debbie Longo, Director of Research Administration Learning and Development, also of Emory, reviewed relevant leadership development theory and models and explained an application of leadership science at Emory.  They described a program that provides opportunities for Emory’s high potential midlevel managers to acquire the skillset and mindset to transition successfully from operational management to strategic leadership roles, and provided early program results.

The workshop’s 16 participants included several first-time attendees and 3 students.  Evaluation survey respondents responded positively to the content, relevance to their practice, the interaction and discussion, and the opportunity to network with colleagues.  Based on feedback from the first workshop, some adjustments to room set-up and session facilitation debuted at this workshop to favorable reviews.  In addition, participants had the option of completing program evaluation forms by electronic survey entry or paper form, another GAIOP first.
