Krish Murti Academic Coach, Montgomery College, Rockville, MD
I'd like to encourage supervisors, managers, and business owners to consider signing up for any, or all, of the upcoming online courses being offered by my friend and fellow Toastmaster, Dr. Assegid (AZ) Habtewold. I've known Assegid since 2013 and watched a few of his presentations, including a customized presentation on “Soft Skills” that he gave to a Joint Open House of five Toastmasters clubs, a few years ago. As the saying goes, 'leaders are learners', and I closely witnessed Assegid challenging himself to grow professionally as a learning professional. In addition to his thirst for knowledge, he is characterized by an ongoing commitment to helping people — especially “first-timers” — who are relatively new to the United States and its labor market. Such people may have technical skills but lack the soft skills necessary to move up to management ranks. Assegid has made the journey and is passionate about helping others through the same transition. From his personal journey as a leader, the knowledge he acquired and the experience he gained as he travels all over the US to facilitate workshops for leaders in diverse organizations, he has now designed online programs to empower supervisors, managers, and business owners. I highly encourage you to benefit from his offers t o take your leadership to the next level.
