Leadership Starts with Employee Engagement (Concurrent)

November 16
9:45 AM - 10:45 AM

David L. Dunn, CFM
City of Orlando

David Dunn has more than fifty years in the industry working his way up from apprentice mechanic to Fleet & Facilities Division Manager and performing a multitude of assignments serving in Naval Aviation, the Air Force and twenty-three years in the Space Shuttle Program, and has learned a thing or two about the do’s and don’ts of leadership. After being mentored by good and bad leaders throughout his career he will share best practices you can employ today with your team. Key takeaways from this conversation may save you hours of grief in leading your team(s) or negotiating union contracts and/or contracts in general. Insights will form around:

  • Your replacement is probably on your team already.
  • You should be investing in all of your direct reports now to ensure somebody is prepared to step up and steer your ship when you are not there.
  • You owe it to your organization and your team to mentor and prepare now for your inevitable departure.

Attendees will take away three handouts for immediate use back in the office: “12 Characteristics of a Horrible Boss”, “7 Things Every Great Boss Should Do”, and the “Annual Face-to-Face Planning Tool for Retention/Success Planning”.
