Interest in leadership has increased exponentially over the last several decades, paralleling the rapid changes taking place in the world; its importance for personal success and organizational performance is well documented. Traditional command and control approaches to people management no longer work. Today’s organizations need leaders at all organizational levels, and those who have demonstrated the capability to lead will be earmarked for increasing responsibility.

This workshop aims to help you think differently about leadership, and how you can develop into the leader you are capable of becoming. It focuses on helping you learn and leverage specific competencies gained from best-practices in order to first lead yourself, and then lead others.

Topics Covered

  • Leadership versus Management
  • Self-awareness
  • Stress & Time Management
  • Trust
  • Communication
  • Power & Influence

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is for any professional who is called upon to lead others, either formally or informally, in order to accomplish their work. While specifically designed to help individual contributors or recently appointed managers start off on the right path to meet the challenges of leading others, it will also appeal to more experienced managers who perceive the need to change how they lead in order to improve their effectiveness.
