MPI 101

CMP 101


2016 is right around the corner! After all the turkey, pumpkin pie, visits from friends and family, MPI Wisconsin is ready to start 2016 off right with a speaker you won't want to miss. Rick Weaver is the Chief Inspiration Officer at Armarion Solutions and he will be teaching us about the difference between a great manager and a great leader. These two are very different and Rick will walk us through to find out which one we are and how we can use that to our advantage in the workplace to be successful.

MPI 101 - Are you new to MPI or would like to learn more about MPI and how to get involved? MPI 101 is the right place for you to be!  Join us before lunch for this complimentary informative session!

Is There a Difference Between a Great Manager and a Great Leader?
What Every Meeting Professional Needs to Know
Excellence in leadership, in management, and in individual contribution can be distilled into one controlling insight, one "thing" you need to know. This controlling insight is the key to sustained success in any field. This program will be beneficial to you if you've always suspected that great leadership isn't just a higher form of great management, and you want to put your finger on the profound difference between the two. The role of a great leader is to rally people to a better future (using the future as the place to start). Great managers discover what is unique about a person and capitalize on it – great leaders do the inverse. A truly effective leader will not deny that we are all different – but rather focus on the greater truth that while we are different – we share a great deal and at the same time strategically focusing on the path that take our differences to success.

Learner Outcomes:
  • Identify if YOU are a great manager or a great leader
  • Clarify the differing skills needed to be a great manager/leader
  • Discover ways to capitalize on and sustain your own success

Community Outreach - Daystar Inc.

Daystar, unique organization has been helping abused women for nearly 30 years. Daystar provides a safe, supportive home for women to begin their journey of healing from the mental, emotional and physical abuse they have suffered. Every day, behind closed doors women suffer at the hands of those who are supposed to love them. Many ask, “Where would I go?” For 20 – 25 women every year, the answer is Daystar. By providing housing for up to two years and partnering the basic needs of food and shelter with services like support groups, job search, financial literacy, and other vital life skills clients leave Daystar ready to start a new, stable, life free of violence. Except for the common thread of abuse, every woman who comes to Daystar is unique; they need different things to heal, to move on, and to build their new life. We are proud of how we are able to meet those individual needs. Many of the women coming to Daystar lack the physical things we take for granted. To help them get settled we would be grateful for the following new or unopened items. Every little bit helps!
