The second annual Engaging Women Local Government Managers' Summit will be taking place in conjunction with the NCCCMA Conference on Thursday, June 22 from 12:00 PM to 4:30 PM. This pre-conference event seeks to foster a network of women working in NC local government management, through networking and hands-on skill building.

This is a NC-wide gathering of women working in senior local government management at the city, town, and county level. The North Carolina City/County Management Association (NCCCMA) is a key event sponsor.  

 

Program Schedule Below:

 

“Navigating Dual Roles: Manager and Caregiver” Panel Session

Taking on a top management job in local government presents a significant number of challenges both professionally and personally. Frequently complicating professional choices are responsibilities for caring for others, whether that is small children, relatives with mental or physical challenges, or aging parents.

This panel will include managers and assistant managers who have dealt with or are dealing with the challenges associated with their career while taking care of children, disabled relatives, or elderly parents. 

 

“Assessment and Negotiation” 

Negotiation, persuasion, influence.  Skills that every executive must master to be successful but that many find challenging to apply.  Using a mock assessment center format, this session will engage the audience in evaluating the mixed performance of two executives in critical and common situations - negotiating a contract with Council and coaching an employee to correct some performance issues.  Attendees will leave with an overall understanding of assessment center evaluation and some tips for success in three critical skills.

Speaker: Heather A. Lee, Ph.D., SPHR Industrial/ Organizational Psychologist, Partner, Developmental Associates, LLC
