U-M Management Conference: Developing the Leaders and the Best

U-M Management Conference 2019 on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at the Marriott Eagle Crest.

The U-M Management Conference provides a forum for the university’s managers, at all levels, to learn best practices, hone managerial skills and increase self-knowledge.

New in 2019, the Michigan Medicine Management Conference and the U-M Management Conference will combine to create one leadership development opportunity for all university leaders. This conference is open to leaders on the Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campuses and in Michigan Medicine.

This year's conference is being offered at no cost for U-M faculty and staff. In order to reach as many leaders as possible, we are offering identical half-day programs; please register for either the morning session or the afternoon session.

Keynote:

Effective Leadership: Excellence Through Unlocking the Potential of Your Team with Amer F. Ahmed, Ed.D.

Many approaches to leadership reinforce the message that the success or failure of an organization is determined by managers at the top.

The reality is, organizations only achieve greatness when they harness the human potential of everyone by demonstrating the value of each person's contribution.

In this engaging keynote, Dr. Amer F. Ahmed, founder and nationally-known consultant and CEO of AFA Diversity Consulting, draws from his personal story and background to demonstrate how creating an inclusive workplace is the key to achieving excellence and success in your organization.
