  • Please join us for a very special Core Exchange with Joe Rando, “Leadership, Management and Problem Solving: Unlocking Your Potential With This Trifecta!”

    The event will be held in-person in Light Hall 214 on November 3, Noon – 1pm. Light refreshments provided; BYO lunch encouraged.

    For this Core Exchange, we are delighted to welcome Joe Rando, Associate Professor of The Practice and Director of Undergraduate Study, Business Studies at Vanderbilt University. Beyond his roles at Vanderbilt, Joe has held titles including CEO, Founder, General Manager, Partner, and SVP in a number of startups, high-growth companies, and consulting firms. 

    Joe will present the interactive session “Leadership, Management and Problem Solving:  Unlocking Your Potential With This Trifecta!” Countless books, articles, talks, and courses focus on topics such as “Becoming A Stronger Leader” and “Being A Better Manager” and “Tools for Effective Problem Solving”. In fact, it’s the intersection of all three where the magic really happens! Whether you are in an entry-level position, a chief executive, or somewhere in between, building your toolkit in these three areas will unlock your potential.
