IBA Covering Registration Costs for Up to Three Indiana Engineers to Attend SBE Leadership Development Course this Summer

To support our Hoosier engineers and their professional development, the IBA will fund registration expenses for up to three Indiana engineers to attend the annual SBE Leadership Development Course.

“This is a first come, first serve opportunity for any Indiana engineer who might consider enriching their leadership capabilities by taking advantage of the SBE sessions.  Registration costs for the Atlanta, Georgia event are $720 for each SBE member.

If you are interested in attending, please contact Katy Barnhart (katy@indianabroadcasters.org) and she will work with you to reimburse registration costs – up to three engineers in our state,” said Dave Arland, IBA Executive Director.

The SBE has presented the Leadership Development Course since 1997.  This intense course is designed specifically for broadcast engineers who have or aspire to have management responsibilities. The SBE offers the course in cooperation with instructor Dr. Abram Walton, the founder of Ivory Bridge Group, a management consulting and training firm.

Designed to take technically adept people and instill in them sound leadership, supervisory and management skills, the SBE Leadership Development Course is equally beneficial for those who are already in management and for those without prior management or supervisory experience.

This highly interactive course will be challenging and rewarding, and includes training in the following areas:

  • Understanding the Dynamics of Leadership
  • CAPS Study: Discover Your Leadership Behavioral Style
  • Communications
  • Effective Motivation Techniques
  • Building Winning Teams (team process and team advantage)
  • Responsible Management
  • Insights into Generational Differences
  • Leadership is an Attitude
  • Managing Conflict, Counseling and Discipline

This three-day event challenges you to refine your leadership skills as you better understand and improve how you interact with others.
