On September 20th, Prof. Marjan Bojadziev, PhD, Rector at University American College Skopje (UACS), and Makedonska Dimitrova, Assistant Lecturer at UACS and Director of the Scientific Board at the UACS Entrepreneurship and Leadership Development Institute led 20 representatives from AmCham member organizations through an engaging presentation on efficient 21 century leadership styles.
Mr. Bojadziev presented the different leadership styles and the traits that make a successful leader, as well as the main behavioral theories that identify and positively affect the group behavior. He emphasized the role that management and leadership play in the organization and advised the participants to carefully manage their career expectations, dividing their short term and long term goals.
After a short break, Ms. Dimitrova divided the participants in smaller groups and gave a “workshop feel” to the session. After a short group work, the group representatives shared their views on the subjects of organizational behavior and organizational values.
Participants had a chance to learn practical skills and a variety of tools that they can apply directly to their everyday work. They also had an opportunity to see how an UACS class on Leadership or Organizational studies looks and feels like.
