 Work will pay all expenses to attend the EMC and ECC conferences which will be interstate, just need a killer justification...

So I need some words of wisdom to put into a 50 words or less justification as to why an organisation focused on leadership over management should pay for me to attend.

If only the titles were Effective Leadership Conference (ELC) and Effective Communication in Leadership (ECL)...

Bottom line, the EMC can help you get better FASTER. You will get so much practical, actionable, real-life help in one day at the EMC - though I've listened to MT podcasts for years and had implemented one-on-ones and feedback with my team, when I took the EMC last winter I discovered how much more confident and comfortable I could be with these crucial everyday actions. 

Just for comparison: I took a 3-day "new manager" class through the American Management Association last year, and while it was interesting, most of it was not ACTIONABLE - I just didn't know what to do with the pile of information I came away with. (And it cost 2x more than the EMC.)

Good luck!

What Stenya said AND your whole group benefits as well. Two directs who used to report to me have now been promoted and are managing their own groups.
