'Growing Organizational Leaders' seminar for businesses Feb. 2

SUNY Oswego’s Institute for Professional and Organizational Development will host a seminar on “Growing Organizational Leaders” from 8 a.m. to noon Feb. 2 at the Oswego State Education Center in the Oswego County Industrial Park in Phoenix.

This seminar is part of the institute’s succession planning certificate program, which will enable business leaders and organizations to respond positively to the projected human resource shortages over the next several years, said Donna Besaw, assistant director of continuing education at SUNY Oswego. 

“Growing Organizational Leaders” provides for the development, replacement and strategic use of personnel in key positions. An essential dimension of succession planning systems is based on the assessment of performance results, an individual’s potential and a set of leadership and organizational competencies valued by the organization, Besaw said. Participants will learn to create and define a leadership model for their organization and identify core competencies that support their leadership model.

The SUNY Oswego Institute for Professional and Organizational Development is dedicated to partnering with business, government and nonprofit organizations to develop and deliver customized employee training based on current and future business needs. Its mission, “Your Success Is Our Business,” focuses on bottom-line results.
