“It is one of the single most consolidated sources of leadership that I know of,” said 2013 attendee John Doe, senior manager at ABC & Co. “But it goes beyond that. I think this conference, although very focused on leadership, transcends the topic and really shows you how to lead in life. Every young leader should be thinking about attending this conference.
Leadercast exists to positively change the way the world thinks about leadership. This year’s theme—Beyond You—challenges leaders to focus outward rather than inward. Experience Leadercast and discover what it means to be a leader worth following.
This is the second year Worthington has hosted an interactive portal into the Leadercast event. As reported by Aaron Hagen, Daily Globe reporter:
A year ago, Roxanne Hayenga, who does customized training at Minnesota West, organized the Leadercast in Worthington. She said there was good attendance, and it was well received.
“One of the attendees said, ‘Next year, I’m going to get the Student Senate at the college to bring some people from the college here,’” Hayenga said. “So the Student Senate is sending people here from Minnesota West. It’s really nice to have the student interaction with the businesses.”
More than 100,000 leaders from 14 countries attended Leadercast last year. This is the 15th year of the conference.
In addition to the many well-known speakers, there will also be some local representation. MVTV Wireless will be presenting during the afternoon breakout session…
“We are also going to have some local organizations (present) during the breakout times to give us a little synopsis of what they do and how they utilize Leadercast in their mission and vision in their organization,” Hayenga said.
According to a release, “Leadercast exists to positively change the way the world thinks about leadership.”
“The idea is that we all have leadership roles,” Hayenga said.
“Whether you’re a manager or part of a family, you use leadership skills everyday in your life,” Hayenga continued. “You learn how to interact with different people, and it’s a day where you can be revitalized.”
This year’s theme is “Beyond You.” Its goal is to challenge leaders to focus outward rather than inward.
“One thing about Leadercast — it definitely is inspiring,” Hayenga said. “I think for people who have not participated, Leadercast is very well done and very professional.”
Hayenga said continuing education units are offered for nursing, social work, nursing home administrators and leadership.
Leadercast will begin with registration at 7:30 a.m. The first session begins at 8 a.m. The program concludes at 4 p.m.
Cost to attend is $99, but group rates are available. For local ticketing information, call 507-372-3468 or visit www.mnwest.edu
