MBA’s 2024 Virtual Conference


Effective Leadership and Management


A “Flexible Schedule” Conference for Executives and Managers

April 2 – May 2, 2024

$80 per webinar or $315 for all 5 Webinars


The goals of MBA’s 2024 Virtual Conference on Effective Leadership and Management is to provide executives, managers and upper-level supervisors with quality training that is realistic, reliable, and relevant to their jobs in a “flexible schedule” format that fits in the schedule of busy leaders and managers.

 In order to provide training which fits in the schedule of busy leaders and managers, each webinar will be offered on a Tuesday and repeated on the following Thursday. The Thursday sessions will be live and  not a recording of the Tuesday sessions.   Participants may choose which session they attend for each of the webinars for which they register.



Each Webinar is scheduled from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm Central Time

April 2  // April 4:   “How to Change the Culture of an Organization” presented by Dr. Mel Brown

An organization is only as strong as its work culture; however, as daily stress remains at a record high and a majority of the world’s workers are not engaged, organizations must ask themselves: What can be done to foster a strong culture of connection and engagement?  Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Define Organizational Culture,
  • Define the terms “vision” and “mission” and explain the role of each,
  • List ways to achieve buy-in of the vision and mission from employees,
  • Explain the  steps in changing the culture of an organization, and
  • Implement change in the culture of the organization or unit they lead.


April 9 // April 11: “Getting and Keeping the Best Employees: Decreasing turnover and increasing Morale” presented by Dr. Ken Maaz

Turnover is costly in every sense and often disruptive to efficiency, culture, and mission accomplishment. It’s hard not to hire out of desperation, but don’t do it. Aim for the best employees – attract them, welcome them, and make them want to stay. Here’s how. Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the employees they want,
  • Effectively screen for those employees,
  • Identify what really matters to employees,
  • Use standards and mission to enhance accountability and appreciation,
  • Use effective tools to identify reasons for turnover/retention and devise interventions to keep prized employees, and
  • Understand the changing market and workforce.


April 16 //  April 18: “Successfully Working with a Multi-Generational Workforce” presented  by Mr. Richard Gentry

 There is a new kind of diversity that less than 8 percent of organizations in the US even recognize – diverse generations on teams. For the first time in history there are five generations in the workplace. Differences in age and life events tend to place a wedge between employees in the workplace. This gap has great potential to cause tension, division, and misunderstanding. Unfortunately, this wedge has fostered poor communication on our teams, reduction in morale, conflicting values and priorities in the workplace, and divisions that lead to walls instead of bridges. Although we should avoid making assumptions about people solely based on age, there is value on educating ourselves on the reality that different generations have faced throughout their careers. Understanding these nuances is essential in accepting one another.  As a result of attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the various dynamics which make each generation unique,
  • Identify ways to bridge the generational gap through communication, humility, and the value of learning from those who are either older or younger than us,
  • Describe how leaders can better supervise a diverse workforce,
  • Discuss the power of reverse mentoring between generations, and
  • Explain how to respect the varied boundaries of your team members while upholding your own set of values, boundaries, and ground rules.


April 23 //  April  25: “The Fine Art of Effective Delegation” presented by Dr. Greg Sumpter

 There are understandable reasons why leaders do not delegate often enough. They have heard others share how difficult delegation can be, they believe it might take too long, and the bottom line is that they think they can do it better and faster themselves anyway.

 The fine art of effective delegation involves a mindset that frees leaders up for seeing the bigger picture, and more importantly it builds the skills and values of the team.

 The truth is that what got you to where you are will not always help you and your team grow to where you need to be. Are you delegating enough? Let’s find out together and walk through some strategies to be intentional in the practice of the art of delegation.  During this webinar participants will  practice with and be exposed to some tools related to delegation. As a result of attending this webinar, those who actively participate will be able to:

  • Define what makes delegation effective,
  • List  several myths about delegation,
  • Explain what makes delegation difficult, and
  • Leave the webinar with a learned mindset and tangible skills that allow leaders to be artistic, use finesse, and be effective; all while keeping it simple.


 April 30 //  May 2 :     “Leading from the Middle” by Dr. Mel Brown

 In the vast and intricate structure of organizations, there is a group often over-looked but who are pivotal to the organization’s success – those leading from the middle. While the Chief Executive of an organization decides what the organization should be doing, it is those often-overlooked supervisors and mid-mangers who determine whether the job gets done. As a result of attending this webinar those who actively participate will be able to:

  • Define the terms “Mid-Manager” and “Mid-Leader,”
  • Explain the role of each,
  • Discuss not only how to effectively lead those they supervise, but also people on the same level within the organization as they are, and the people above them on the organization chart, and
  • Improve their effectiveness in dealing with the employees they supervise, the people who are on the same level with them within the organization and the people in higher positions on the organizational chart.
