FRANKLIN, Ind. – Leadership Johnson County will host From Buddy to Boss – Successful Transition as a New Leader on Thursday, April 8, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., in a virtual workshop setting, via Zoom.
One of the most challenging experiences anyone will face is transitioning into a leadership position. Being a new manager means potentially supervising friends and former peers. This workshop will show how to adopt the mindset of a leader and gain new skills including communication, coaching, goalsetting and giving feedback. At the end of the workshop, participants will have learned how to build a foundation for a new leadership position, communicate with former peers who are now subordinates, and develop coaching skills and provide feedback.
Facilitator Brad Coy is the Assistant Fire Chief of the Greenwood (IN) Fire Department. He received his Master’s in Organizational Leadership from Indiana Wesleyan University and his B.A. in Biology, with an emphasis in Athletic Training from Franklin College. Brad is in his 27th year as a public servant, serving more than 20 years with the Greenwood Fire Department. He has been awarded many honors with the fire service including the 2016 Van Valer Service Award for Outstanding Service to the Community. Brad is a proud graduate of Leadership Johnson County and currently serves on the 2020-2021 LJC Board of Trustees as the President.
