Fraternity/Sorority Life CAP spring/final submission deadline 

Leadership is integral to professional success no matter the position we hold within an organization. Regardless of what you believe about how leaders evolve—they are born, or they learn to be leaders, or some combination of these—we all have the capacity to lead.

Part of being a leader, however, is being seen and being respected as a leader. How do we make this happen, especially if it doesn't come to us naturally? We establish leadership presence using tips, tricks, and tools based on best practices and research.

This presentation by Tammy Manko, director of the IUP Career and Professional Development Center, will provide you with tactics for standing out as a respected leader in your organization and in life. 

Join us via Zoom.
