2019 OAMR Annual Academy Session
“Leadership 2019: What Municipal Recorders Need to Know”
Wednesday, September 18, 2019 – 8:30 A.M. – 4:00 P.M.
Register now! The 2019 Annual Academy will be held on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, at the RiverHouse on the Deschutes in Bend, from 8:30 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. The session is entitled, “Leadership 2019: What Municipal Recorders Need to Know,” and will be presented by David Rabiner. This session will provide three education points for both CMC and MMC candidates on completion of an assessment. The cost of the session is $150.00 for OAMR members, $175 for non-members, and includes lunch.
David Rabiner is a partner in Rabiner Resources, a speaking, training, facilitation, and coaching firm. He has been presenting keynote addresses and training programs on leadership, influence, personal/organizational performance, building winning teams, and other related topics for the past 25 years. He has presented more than 2,200 programs in 13 countries and 46 states, which is a body of work in the top one percent of speakers and trainers in the United States.
Prior to becoming a speaker, Rabiner spent ten years in local government administration which provided first-hand understanding of the challenges faced by public sector managers. With that knowledge and understanding, he has presented more than 800 programs to public sector departments, agencies, and associations.
Rabiner takes pride in presenting programs that are current, relevant, and impactful. His programs induce change, and he never loses sight of the fact that the success of his programs depend more on what happens after the programs, rather than during the programs themselves.
Come prepared to engage and learn. Rabiner will explain why local government leaders are under more pressure now than ever. Revenue and service level projections dictate that “more with less” means something much different now. Dramatic advances in technology and social media have meant the public sees more, talks more, and hears more, creating a bigger need for public sector transparency. More than ever, public officials live in a fishbowl, and the need to increase trust between government and its citizens is very high. Municipal recorders and other managers and supervisors still need to lead their people, and “how to lead” continues to change as well. Leading the new generation creates new and different challenges for traditional managers. And while large numbers of retirements have many leaders thinking about succession planning, some organizations are starting to notice the bigger problem – how to attract and retain the highest quality people necessary to do the challenging work public service requires today. Now more than ever, the organization that finds and keeps the best people excels, and it’s safe to say that if you’re leading today the way you did it even ten years ago, you are at a distinct competitive disadvantage.
Further, municipal recorders have leadership demands that are always more varied because of the wide-range of people they impact. In addition to leading their own employees and serving citizens directly, recorders interact with, serve, and must maintain powerful relationships with employees at all levels of the organization.
In this program, David will address what peak performance looks like in the public sector leadership today for municipal recorders. He will differentiate leadership from management in a compelling, memorable way, and he will discuss the qualities and practices necessary for successful leadership. Attendees will leave with the foundation for their own leadership plans they can take back to their organizations – and the incentive to implement them.
In this session, you will learn:
● How to understand the difference between people who are difficult and people who are different.
● How to manage and influence different people in different ways, and how to optimize the way different people work together.
● The fundamental principle of influencing others.
● The difference between leadership and management in a way you will always remember.
● The relationship between leadership and your organization’s critical need to attract and retain the highest quality people.
● The qualities of successful leaders today.
● The obstacles to personal leadership development.
● A three-step process for turning a desired leadership quality into a personal attribute.
● An understanding of “leadership balance” and a valuable assessment tool to enable you to identify and achieve that balance.
● The single-most important communication tool necessary to build rapport, influence, motivate, and inspire.
● A step-by-step process for planning and executing important conversations.
● The tools of self-management and how to manage stress and have an even keel.
● Why culture is critical today and what it takes to build culture over time.
● Understanding the value of “leadership vision” and how it is differentiated from management vision.
● An understanding of the components of trust and how to diagnose and address trust issues that get in the way of successful relationships and collaboration.
● And, more!
