Chair: Leslie Martinich – lmartinich@ieee.org

Vice Chair: Mark Wehde – wehde.mark@mayo.edu

The Leadership and Management of People and Organizations (LMPO) Technical Activity Committee is convened to help members increase their leadership capabilities. This may include discussions involving, though not limited to, written and verbal communication, active listening, motivation of self and staff, effective delegation of responsibilities, authenticity, accountability, agility, empathy, culture, ethics, and commitment.  Additionally, we will consider topics such as strategic planning, technology forecasting, technology roadmaps, balanced scorecards, staffing and recruiting, diversity and inclusion initiatives, innovation, change management, and other topics relevant to the effective management of an organization.

Leadership skills are required at all levels of an organization and every individual should strive to implement their own personal development plan regardless of the years of experience or formal leadership position. Managing yourself well is a first step to managing other well. And leadership skills can take years to develop. Newer employees would do well to watch and analyze the managers in their organization and reflect on that vicarious learning experience when reviewing their own performance. Experienced managers and leaders should never quit learning new skills or developing those that already exist. Management and leadership best practices change as rapidly as technology does and a leader who stops learning will never achieve what they might otherwise have achieved.

As a member of this group you will have the opportunity to participate in ongoing online discussions, to attend webinars on specific topics, to contribute to sessions and workshops at conferences, and to publish articles in the various TEMS journals.

Join this Technical Activity Committee if you wish to engage and contribute to TEMS along this line of interest.  We will be looking for interesting discussions, networking, conference engagement, publications and other activities; with a focus on results.   More information on TACs in general can be found on the overview and details of the TACs web pages.

To join please email Leslie Martinich or Mark Wehde.
