Our very own Taher Hisham Hamid has been named to the 36th class of Leadership Lakeland – but what does leadership mean when it comes to IT services and support?
The Alltek Services team is proud to announce that our Marketing Manager, Taher Hisham Hamid, has been selected for Leadership Lakeland’s 36th class. As one of 30 local members of the business community selected for the year-long program, Taher will take part in programming intended to pinpoint key leadership and further cultivate areas of community interest.
“This year’s class is comprised of a diverse group of leaders, from those leading both large and small industry to those serving members of our community in need,” said Leadership Lakeland Chair, Michelle Ledford, to The Tampa Bay Business Journal. “We are focused on providing an experience where these class members will be immersed in our city and exchange ideas regarding our resources and opportunities.”
Over the course of the year, Taher and the other members will attend a range of meetings, receptions, retreats, and a final graduation, all of which will contribute to their development as leaders in their many areas of business.
“Based on the actions from previous graduates of the program, we know this class will also finish their year more informed and ready to champion topics that will make Lakeland even better,” added Ledford.
What Does Leadership Lakeland Offer Members?
No matter what point a company may be at – a few months after start-up, or years into growth – one thing stays the same: the challenges are always new, and always difficult to overcome. Leadership development groups like this allow members to learn from one another, sharing key insights to assistant each other in overcoming business obstacles.
Peers are a great tool to help leaders in a community stay focused on the goals they set, no matter what they may be.
By laying out their goals at one of the Leadership Lakeland meetings and following up on them with the members at the next one, they’ll clearly be more motivated to actually see them through.
This one is simple, but it’s a big part of what makes groups like this so effective. They simply provide a sounding board for their members to discuss what they’re working on at the time.
One of the primary benefits of any sort of business world peer groups is how effective it can be to chat with s someone who also practices leadership in a similar field or community. You can connect over a recent, unpopular development that you have a shared interest in, for example. That small moment of camaraderie can do wonders for your outlook.
