AMBA Emerging Leaders Virtual Ignition Workshop Series: Building Your Leadership Essentials Kit – in 27 Minutes!

06/04/2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

The AMBA Emerging Leaders Network, alongside the Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (MAPP) and the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers (ARPM) young professional groups, is launching a new workshop series for 40-and-under manufacturing professionals: Virtual Ignition – Lighting Your Path to Leadership.

During these monthly workshops (which will be held on the third Thursday of every month, June – August), the associations will host a series of speakers, facilitators and exchanges where young professionals and those new to the industry will explore how to lead through an environment of change and uncertainty. These sessions will illuminate new opportunities for leadership growth, empowering attendees to embrace new opportunities along their own path and strengthening their ability to light the way for others.

Workshop sessions will be held on the third Thursday of every month. All workshops will include live takeaway discussions during or after each presentation.

Session 2: Building Your Leadership Essentials Kit – in 27 Minutes!

Presented by Kirk Weisler, Author of The Dog Poop Initiative

The Emerging Leaders Network will continue its Virtual Ignition Series with Kirk Weisler, a distinguished keynote speaker and author of The Dog Poop Initiative. Weisler will lead attendees through the building of their “Essentials Kit”, which will accelerate participants’ leadership learning and enhance each attendee’s legacy through acquiring and putting into practice the leadership learning habits that matter most. For an introduction to the concept of an “Essentials Kit”, view this recommended clip from Brian Regan.

Weisler will facilitate three short, 27-minute sessions (followed by a final 30-minute extended facilitated discussion) during the month of June that will each result in actionable – and fun! – material. For individual session details and needed supplies, click here.

Session Dates: 

  • Thursday, June 4 | 11 AM EST | Topic: The Empty Book (27 minutes)
  • Thursday, June 11 | 11AM EST | Topic: Why the “Greeny” Leader Wins (27 minutes)
  • Thursday, June 18 | 11AM EST | Topic: Great Leaders Teach – A Look at Beliefs and Behavior (27 minutes, followed by a 30-minute facilitated discussion)

In addition to the facilitated discussion with Weisler, attendees will also be placed in pre-assigned groups of three to discuss and reflect on how the content relates to their own experiences and how it can be implemented moving forward. These 10-15-minute downloads will take place directly after each session (or the groups will have the opportunity to meet separately at a time of their choosing).

There is limited availability for this event. Because you will be committing to and supporting your pre-assigned group members, attendees are expected to partake in all three sessions. If you do not believe you can make this commitment, please do not register. If you miss a session, your registration for future sessions will be canceled.
