Alumni News

How do you define “leadership?” We talk and write about it frequently in relation to our government or corporate leaders. We strive to be leaders in our community, our workplaces, and our homes. Libraries and bookstores are filled with volumes of “how-to” publications, and a Google search on “leadership” will turn up hundreds of thousands of results. 

Part of the mission and vision of the Bradley University Alumni Association is to provide lifelong resources in support of the personal, professional, and civic aspirations of our alumni. We seek to keep you connected with your alma mater and look for opportunities to provide you with purposeful programming in support of your interests and development. I am excited about an upcoming program that speaks to all of us in the workforce and showcases one of our talented faculty.

On April 25, all alumni are invited to participate in a free webinar, “Your Great Workplace: Lessons from the Best!” Facilitated by author and Bradley professor Dr. Jennifer Robin (see What Counts in the Workplace), you’ll learn how you can capitalize on the latest workplace trends, retain top talent, and enjoy tangible business value in return for efforts to build a great workplace.

You don’t have to be a manager or business owner to participate. Anyone wishing to learn more about the importance of trust, pride, and camaraderie in the workplace will benefit from the program.

Find details and register for the webinar at Invite your friends, colleagues (and boss!) to join you. After all, how often can they benefit from great professional development programs — free of charge!
