Front-line managers can have the single largest impact on your organization. A good (or bad) manager affects employee performance and satisfaction, productivity, efficiency, turnover, and the overall health of any organization. If your company is in business to make a profit, it goes without saying that investing in training is a smart move.

The Lakeland Chamber of Commerce recognizes the need for its investors to identify high-potential future leaders and provide professional development training designed to cultivate a pool of qualified leaders who are prepared to fill mid-level management roles.

That is why, the Lakeland Chamber will be hosting a management training course to provide leadership development training to emerging leaders in the business community. The 7-part workshop series will be co-facilitated by Emily Rogers and Alison Midili Smith, Ph. D. of Emily Rogers Consulting + Coaching.

This  7-week  program will provide participants with the following skills:

  • Introduction to High-performance Leadership
  • Understanding your Leadership Style
  • Developing Highly-Functioning Teams
  • Managing & Resolving Conflict through Improved Communication
  • Creating Intelligent Change
  • Managing Workplace Stress
  • Developing a Coaching Habit

As a business consultant, executive coach and retreat facilitator, Emily strategically advises and supports businesses, teams and individuals in growing and realizing their full potential in purposeful and balanced ways. Prior to starting her business in 2013, as President & Chief Growth officer of IEG (a WPP co.), she advised Fortune 100 brands, professional sports teams, entertainment properties and global nonprofits on how to form mutually beneficial strategic alliances. Described by the The Ledger as bringing a "fresh face to leadership", Emily authors a monthly column intended to inspire leadership excellence. She is a sought after speaker that has presented keynote presentations and workshops throughout North America, Europe and Asia.

Alison recently joined Emily Roger’s team and is consulting with businesses across various industries to help companies achieve their goals through the development of their most important asset, their people.  Prior to her consulting role, Alison served as the Senior Vice President Human Resources for Publix Super Markets, Inc., a Fortune 100 company with over 193,000 employees. In this leadership role, she served on the CEO executive team providing strategic leadership in areas such as hiring, onboarding, training development and delivery, succession planning, corporate communication strategy, change management implementation, performance management, business planning, leadership development and employee engagement. Alison has seen firsthand the powerful positive impact that is achieved when companies focus and invest in developing the potential of their employees. As a result, her passion is to work with companies to help realize this potential and create meaningful organizational change and growth.
