Jan 29 – Ann Tardy
Managing & Leading:
Strategies to Help You Excel at Both

This session will explore the essential strategies and techniques required to both lead and manage simultaneously from the same role. Being a manager is one of the most arduous and yet most valuable roles in any organization. The challenge lies in dealing with the expectations of those above and below you while also contributing to people’s success around you. When you master this, you will discover how to impact any organization from the middle. This workshop is personally lead by Ann Tardy, voted Outstanding Business Woman of the Year by the American Business Women’s Association.  You will leave this class with fresh insights and the skills needed to powerfully evolve into a successful Manager AND Leader.

As a former Silicon Valley corporate attorney and a current CEO, Ann knows people from many dynamics. Working alongside some of the best and brightest lawyers, entrepreneurs, VCs, and business owners, Ann incorporated companies, negotiated mergers, managed venture-backed financings, and held the hands of many anxious CEOs, and loved it. She then started her own law firm representing over 75 entrepreneurs, grew it until her CEOs became friends, and then sold it to a larger firm that continues to represent entrepreneurs and start-ups nationwide.

In 2003 Ann followed her passion to work with leaders and launched LifeMoxie Mentoring & Leadership to transform corporate America by transforming where and how people lead. Her programs, books and speeches are loved by clients such as Kaiser Permanente, Duke Energy, Macy’s, and Southern California Edison.

As a speaker and author, Ann prepares people to execute powerfully in ever-changing environments. From keynotes to executive retreats, Ann influences audiences with her experiences and her 25 years of leadership. She is the author of four books: Ambition on a Mission (2007), Moxie for Managers (2011), Why Mentoring Matters (2013), and The Joy of Mentoring (2015). They have become popular books for companies that are committed to creating strong leaders and strong cultures in this fiercely competitive marketplace.
In 2012 Ann founded the Mentoring Council (www.mentoringcouncil.com) where hundreds of program administrators, leaders, and HR professionals go to connect, share resources, benchmark progress, and exchange best practices.

When not on a stage or transforming corporate America, you can find Ann on her bicycle. In the summer of 2011, Ann cycled 4,200 miles from San Francisco to New Jersey in The Moxie Ride, to film the documentary, Work Matters, identifying what people love about their jobs and how bosses influence their success. She continued her research from a bike in 2012 when she cycled 2,600 miles from Key West, Florida, to Bar Harbor, Maine, and in 2014 when she cycled 1,600 miles from Seattle to San Diego.

Ann recently earned the Certified Speaking Professional designation from the National Speakers Association, and was honored as an Outstanding Business Woman of the Year by the American Business Women’s Association and honored with the Vanguard Award from The McGraw-Hill Companies for her contributions to their employees.  She earned a B.S. in Accountancy from University of Illinois, a J.D. from Chicago-Kent Law School, a CPA from Illinois, and license to practice law in Illinois and California.
