Authentic Leadership

Participants are encouraged to define their authentic leadership style - to be a more effective leader and communicator. Participants review a variety of leadership styles and how leaders can effectively relate with the various people in an organization.

Communicating Like a Leader

Communication is a foundational leadership skill. Participants practice effective communication techniques that improve their ability to connect and enhance the productivity of their teams.

Core Skills of Leadership

Successful leaders do more than manage well. They approach each situation as a leader and use influence and strategy to achieve results instead of relying on power and position. Participants learn the key skills of leadership and how to apply those skills in various situations.

Individual Personal Leadership and Influence

Every interaction with another person determines how you are perceived and every interaction is an opportunity to develop trust and exert positive influence. What you say and what you do – your words and deeds – matter.

This workshop provides information, discussion, and practical application of concepts and skills to better understand yourself and others and ultimately how to interact with others to build trust and success as a leader.

Leading Change and Conflict Resolution

Organizations exist on habitual behavior and yet, at the same time, leaders know their excellence depends on being able to shift business practices based on internal and external feedback. With change, comes conflict. Equilibrium feels off balanced which provides a leader with a glimpse into the operations of their organization and interaction between co-workers, other departments, and their customers. Participants will have the opportunity to apply concepts and skills to scenarios that focus on managing change and embracing the conflict that comes along with this change.

Leading into Organizational Effectiveness

It is imperative that leaders understand systems and how they function, interact to ensure organizational effectiveness, and maintain responsiveness to customers. Participants learn the key concepts and skills necessary to analyze, assess, and make recommendations for system improvement.

Leading with Emotional Intelligence

Without mastering emotional intelligence –the ability to manage emotions in a positive way to build trust, communicate effectively, empathize, and overcome challenges – leadership success will be limited at best. A leader’s ability to cultivate productive relationships (intrapersonal, interpersonal, and social) and leverage the emotional capital in themselves and others is the foundation of leadership and organizational success in this environment.   Participants learn key concepts and skills and behaviors to become more effective leaders and influencers.

Leading and Integrating Change

Change is all around us; whether it is change driven by opportunity or change in the drive to improve productivity. For most managers, managing change is a constant. Many people, however, experience change as something inflicted upon them. Participants learn a proven approach to organizational change management, change theory and practice leading and integrating change skills.

Leading Teams: Transforming Groups into Teams and Workplaces to Communities of Purpose

In response to a continually shifting market forces, organizations are moving to a more collaborative community model to drive commitment, engagement, innovation, and focused action. Today’s leaders must learn to be relationship entrepreneurs and community builders. By comparing high-performing and dysfunctional teams, participants identify characteristics to nurture and promote in their own teams. This course covers both creative innovation as well as the functional aspects of leading cohesive teams.

Leading Virtual Teams

Remote and virtual team management has become the norm for many organizations. Participants learn that effective distance leadership includes traditional approaches, but that these strategies must be applied differently to maximize their impact in a virtual environment.

Thinking Like a Leader

Successful leaders approach each situation as a leader and use influence and strategy to achieve results instead of relying on power and position. Participants learn the foundations of leadership, and how to leverage what they know and who they are to maximize the effectiveness of what they do. While their understanding of the organization’s mission and vision, participants create their own leadership growth plan driving their vision for their department or team.
