APSAC to offer 'Leading Through Change' talk

The Administrative and Professional Staff Advisory Committee will offer a presentation titled "Leading Through Change" on Nov. 20 as part of its Lovell Leadership Series.

Steve Duncan, assistant vice chancellor for operations, planning and program development and director of military programs at East Carolina University, will give the presentation. It will take place from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. in Stewart Center, Room 302.

During "Leading Through Change," Duncan will give a talk that presents an intimate look at operational leadership. He will speak about the value of understanding one's own leadership style as it relates to working with others to get objectives accomplished. He also will present some of his real-life experiences of leadership in action.

Following Duncan's talk, he will split attendees into groups, which will be asked to complete an exercise that involves prioritizing issues that affect the University as a whole.

In addition to his positions as assistant vice chancellor and director of military programs, Duncan is a tenured professor for East Carolina University's College of Education. Before working for East Carolina, Duncan was the deputy commander of the Army Training Support Center in Fort Eustis, Va., for more than 10 years.

All employees are invited to attend "Leading Through Change" with permission from their supervisor, but space is limited to 100 attendees.
