This article recounts the powerful educational experience IC Corporation’s Regional Managers received this past February during the weeklong Management Skills and Business Strategies course. The objective of this program aims to elevate the managerial skills level of the participants. The session took place in Orlando, Florida, USA, from February 1st to the 6th.
Whereas every Manager can benefit from this course, it was determined that those representing the Dominican Republic, Panama, Spain, USA, and Venezuela, be the first group to participate in it.
Also, the Corporate Manager of the Engineering Department was invited to partake as all projects are intrinsically related to the department.
The Executives reported they found the course enriching and beneficial, both, personally and professionally. Quoting on the participant and Regional Manager Ms. Sheila Quintero, from the Panama Office: “The training provided the tools to become superior and altruistic leaders while reminding us of the basic principles to successfully reach the Corporation’s goals."
Among several relevant issues discussed during the six-day program, one of apparent concern raised by the executives referred to the Organization’s ability endorsing efficient management and leadership skills in modern times. The continuous technological innovation of the 21st century in combination with the Millennials Era. It was determined that the foundation for continued progress and success bestow upon our capacity as a whole, to readjust and to be flexible to the changes of an ever-evolving world.
During this educational week, the following four categories were thoroughly analyzed: Opportunities, Planning, Management, and Strategy. Some concepts served as reminders; but, many others were brand new and rather invigorating to each manager given that it generated a great deal of discussion and decisive debates. The latter was very productive as they were able to examine real scenarios, and, most importantly, to reach possible solutions.
