Management seminar set for Feb. 18 at The Daily Herald, Arlington Heights, Ill.

January 11, 2017

Mid-America Press Institute will hold a management seminar for newsroom leaders on Saturday, Feb. 18, at The Daily Herald, 155 E. Algonquin Road, Arlington Heights, Ill.

Jill Geisler, formerly affiliated with the Poynter Institute and currently the Bill Plante Chair of Leadership and Management Integrity at Loyola University, Chicago, will lead the one-day seminar.

Seminar topics include “Ten Things Great Bosses Know,” Assessing and Upgrading Your Culture,” “Feedback With Impact,” and “Accountability and Challenging Conversations.”

“Ms. Geisler seminar on leadership and management is exceptional,” said John Ryan, MPI executive director. “It is inspirational for all managers, especially editors facing their first assignment supervising staffers.”

Last year, Geisler led a similar seminar for MPI in March in Indianapolis, Ryan said. “It was the best management seminar we’ve ever held.”

She will cover two of the same topics she did a year ago but will add two new sessions, he said. Her sessions are interactive.

To register for the seminar, email Ryan at Registration for the seminar is $40 for members and $50 for non-members. Lunch is included in the registration fee. The seminar will run from 930 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

In the past, participants needing to stay over have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, 2111 S. Arlington Heights Road, 847-956-1400, which is just a few blocks from the Daily Herald. Several other motels are in the vicinity, too.
