Jodsaas Center sponsors Engineering Leadership seminar
The Jodsaas Center for Engineering Leadership and Entrepreneurship within Engineering is sponsoring an Engineering Leadership seminar from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 22, in 100 Leonard Hall. The seminar, titled "Global Energy Challenges Require Leadership from Engineers and Scientists," will be presented by Steve Benson, professor of Chemical Engineering.
Meeting global energy challenges requires the emergence of leaders with the ability to create an atmosphere that inspires highly skilled teams of engineers and scientists to discover and create the next generation of sustainable energy production technologies. Effective management and leadership skills play a critical role in the development of processes and technologies. Excellent leadership is fundamental in building strong, healthy teams and is the secret underlying the most effective organizations. The well-being of an organization is rooted in the well-being of the people -- both the managers themselves and those for whom they are responsible. Being able to motivate and challenge diverse, technically oriented teams to achieve their highest potential is key.
All students, faculty and staff are invited to attend. Please register in one of the five engineering department reception areas or in the Engineering Dean's Office.
