Indianapolis - Dec 8, 2006 - The SBE Leader-Skills Seminars, in its 11th consecutive year with the society, is specifically designed for broadcast engineers who have or aspire to have management responsibilities. The SBE offers the two-part series in cooperation with instructor Richard Cupka. Both courses are being offered in Indianapolis in 2007.

Course I, Leadership--The Framework of People Skills, will be held June 5 to June 7, 2007. It covers the function and nature of the leadership role; how to build stronger teams and effective internal cooperativeness; the complex differences of people; and discovery of a natural style of leading and how to nurture a developed style to help managers adjust to different people in differing situations.

Course II, Leadership--Expanding Your People Skills, will be held Aug. 7 to Aug. 9, 2007, and picks up where Course I leaves off. Course I, sponsored by the SBE or previously by the NAB (dating back to 1965) is a prerequisite for Course II. Course II explores individual behavior in groups and dynamics of interaction between groups; the complex motivations of different people and how to deal with them; how best to handle disciplinary processes; and where emphasis should be in a leader's ultimate responsibility over people and activities.

Cupka, who has more than 40 years of experience in adult training, has directed and taught the leader-skills seminars to broadcast engineering managers, supervisors and technicians for 40 years. Many of the most respected broadcast engineering managers in the country today are graduates of the program and continue to send members of their staffs so that they, too, can learn from Cupka.

Each course is limited to a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 18 participants. Deadlines to register are May 2 for Course I and July 5 for Course II. The cost of registrations is $545 for each course, which includes three days of instruction, all course materials, a certificate of completion and classroom refreshments.
