How Will YOU Lead?

As the Director of the Executive and Professional Education Center, I try to keep my ear to the ground and listen to the needs of our community members—both for their personal development and business growth. According to Forbes Magazine, as well as many individuals in our business community, companies are facing a major leadership crisis. As baby boomers retire, more and more organizations are encountering a pretty large leadership gap, and in the coming years, the demand for quality leadership will likely outpace the supply. Many of these companies have talented individuals who understand their jobs and have impressive resumes, but many of those individuals are not fully equipped to lead others to achieve the mission and vision of the organization.

I, like most New Mexico residents, have a personal investment in seeing our community grow and prosper. At Anderson’s Executive and Professional Education Center our mission is to help develop leaders who will, in turn, help New Mexico thrive in a global economy.

While leadership trends phase in and out of popularity, one thing remains constant—successful leaders know the difference between managing tasks and managing people. They know how to give encouraging feedback, rather than breaking their employees’ spirits, and they know to inspire teams to generate results. Successful leaders create a leadership art of their own by continually learning new tools, refreshing old ones and nurturing their natural talent.

If you are looking to transition from managing routines to inspiring greatness, I encourage you to check out Anderson’s Career and Professional Development Programs. By developing your leadership art, you will make a difference to your team, your organization, and your community. Craft your leadership style and make your own answer to the question: “How will you lead?”
