WITI Research Triangle Park Regional Network
Looking for Leadership in All the Unexpected Places

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

Most of us have participated in “Leadership 101” programs and know the basics of leadership. We’ve read books on leadership. We’ve observed leaders in action. We’ve been mentored by leaders. And we’ve been leaders ourselves – both formally and informally.

During this seminar, we’ll begin with a review of the basics of leadership. Then we’ll use our creativity as we look for leadership lessons in some of the unexpected places. We’ll look for leadership lessons in situations that appeared to be less than successful…in people who may not think of themselves as leaders…and in some leadership “tools”: a mission statement, a mirror, and a magnet.

We’ll close with a discussion about how women in technology can use the lessons learned to prepare for positions of greater leadership.

Last Day for Registration is 3/12/2007. Please register today. No on site registration.

About Our Sponsor(s)

Cisco Systems

About Our Partner(s)

Cisco Systems, Inc. is the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet. Today, networks are an essential part of business, education, government and home communications, and Cisco's Internet Protocol-based (IP) networking solutions are the foundation of these networks.

Cisco was founded in 1984 by a small group of computer scientists from Stanford University. Since the company's inception, Cisco engineers have been leaders in the development of Internet Protocol (IP)-based networking technologies. Today, with more than 47,000 employees worldwide, this tradition of innovation continues with industry-leading products and solutions in the company's core development areas of routing and switching, as well as in advanced technologies such as:

IP Communications
Network Security

Wireless LAN
Storage Area Networking

Home Networking
Video Systems

Application Networking Services

Cisco has been at the heart of many historic changes in technology, and that continues to be true today. Now, at a time when the technology industry is going through a period of dramatic change, Cisco is the market leader in multiple areas, such as routing and switching, unified communications, wireless and security. The company helped catalyze the industry's move toward IP and, now that it is fully underway, the company is at the center of fundamental changes in the way the world communicates.

The Network is the Platform

The emergence of the network as a platform is changing the entire value chain of technology and placing the network squarely at the center of innovation: as many as 14 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2010. The explosion of devices will be fueled by more and more services and tasks being handled online, from phone calls to personalized searches to downloading videos, games and other forms of entertainment.

The role of the network is evolving beyond that of infrastructure. It is emerging as a secure platform for delivering the customized and personalized experience that 21st century users expect - whether that means delivering new services as a carrier, boosting productivity for businesses of any size or consumers looking for real-time, personalized entertainment and services.

As an increasingly intelligent network evolves into a platform, users will be able to communicate from any device and in whatever mode they choose.

Cisco is leading the transition to a network-centric technology environment. By combining its core strength (IP) with intelligence, the company is creating a powerful communications platform that will serve as the basis for the convergence of data, voice, video and mobile communications in a secure, integrated architecture.
