“Business professionals today face complex challenges. Our programs are carefully designed to provide practical tools which help our participants successfully tackle those challenges,” said Dennis Lanham, director of executive education. “These power lunches give a peek at what participants can expect in our full certificate programs.”

Mark Pogue, executive director of the Clifton Strengths Institute and assistant professor of practice, kicks off the series with “Leveraging Your Strengths for Leading Teams.” The session, which is 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 1 at Noah’s Event Venue, 17121 Marcy St., in Omaha, will explore how to maximize personal and team leadership strengths.

Other talks in the series are:

  • Tammy Beck, associate dean for graduate programs and external engagement, professor of management, “Understanding the Psychology of Change,” 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m., Feb. 22, Wilderness Ridge Golf Club, 1800 Wilderness Woods Place, Lincoln. Beck’s talk will examine the psychology behind change and its resistors.

  • Rick Barrera, assistant dean and chief operating officer for CBA, “Business is War: Management Lessons from the Military,” 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., March 1, Wilderness Ridge Golf Club. Barrera, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, will tap into his more than 21 year of military service to discuss nine key principles to help managers better understand market forces, team management and organizational success.

“Our faculty conduct research that is shaping the conversation about how to lead and create success in business,” said Kathy Farrell, interim dean of the College of Business Administration. “They are often asked to speak nationally and internationally about their work, and through these power lunches we are able to offer local professionals a convenient opportunity to learn from them.”

Executive Education at CBA will also offer six executive certificate programs this spring on topics of sales, marketing, finance and accounting for non-finance professionals, project leadership, lean management and leadership. To learn more, visit http://cba.unl.edu/execed.
