Session Descriptions

ACEL’s mission is to be the proving ground for Greater Phoenix Asian American Professionals, forging leaders of tomorrow through professional development, cultural awareness, community service and mentorship. We are excited to launch our first leadership conference as a strong testament to our commitment to this mission and vision. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity for professional and civic development and growth so you will be ready to step up and take on leadership opportunities in both your business organizations and your communities.

Session 1: TAKING ON GREATER RESPONSIBILITY (Workshop)

So you have advanced to a leadership role or have your eye on a promotion to a leadership role? This session will prepare you for a complete change of responsibilities to help you understand what your boss, peers, staff/team and the organization expect from you. Learn invaluable tools to assume your role with greater confidence and success.

Session 2: ROOT OF REAL IMPACT (Workshop)

Description: Define your passions to increase impact. This interactive workshop will challenge you to gain clarity around personal values and explore opportunities to leverage those values for lasting impact.

Session 3: LEADING WITH EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Emotional Intelligence has been identified as a crucial component of leadership effectiveness. Intellect and business expertise alone is not enough in today’s workplaces. Relationship building and collaboration are key skills to develop as well. Learn how to build your emotional intelligence to be a top performing leader in your organization.

Session 4: STRATEGIES FOR BUILDING EFFECTIVE BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS

“Relationship capital” creates competitive advantage. While most organizations believe that relationships are the key to their success, most lack specific strategies and relationship training that leverages the power of this skill. Successful work/business relationships ensure successful careers!

Session 5: GETTING THE VISIBILITY AND RECOGNITION YOU DESERVE AT WORK

Are you holding YOU back from your own success? Learn how to overcome poor professional image, overcome and resolve workplace situations where ineffective behavior is at play so that you can move forward and get the rewards you deserve.
