PILC 2017 Professional Workshops


PILC 2017 Workshops: Creative Leadership

PILC Conference offers an opportunity to present papers on current leadership issues and trends in its scientific program, as well as a chance to acquire or practice leadership skills through its professional program. Traditionally, the Conference deals with topics related to leadership and management in business, education, sports, tourism, and industry.

The professional program of the PILC 2017 Conference will be dedicated to topics in Creative Management. The workshop attendees will have the opportunity to gain new skills that will enable them to facilitate creativeness with their teams and in their everyday work.

The workshops will enable attendees to enhance their leadership capabilities through self-assessments, practice cases, instruction from facilitators, and highly- interactive discussion. A great company culture can make organizations thrive even in the worst of economic times, while a dysfunctional culture can kill even the best of visions and strategic planning. The workshops will not only refer to personal managerial and leadership skills, but put an emphasis on working with teams within organizations and managing their creative processes.
