The Harper College For Business Leadership Series will feature consultant Phoebe Segal from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 24.

The session will address how to accelerate change; minimize potential negative effects that change can have on productivity, morale and collaboration; turn resistance into commitment and inspire team members to take ownership of change; and clearly communicate the business rationale and benefits of change for the team and organization.

"You could be 'cut out' for leadership, but unless you've been trained in the skills the job demands, you are not as likely to be successful at this job," said Segal, who designs, develops and delivers basic supervisory training with clients in corporate, manufacturing, health care, federal government and not-for-profit organizations.

The session will be at the Wojcik Conference Center on Harper's main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road, Palatine. The cost is $179.

Future sessions include Emotional Intelligence: Dealing With Difficult People on Feb. 28, Developing Others on March 21, Managing Your Priorities on April 25 and Delegating With Purpose on May 30. For information, visit or call (847) 925-6640.
