Do you or your team members ever feel overwhelmed with the amount of work that needs to be done? Are tasks slipping through the cracks? This session is a tactical course in the basics of task management, contribution habits, and knowledge work tools. Derived from gurus like David Allen and Peter Drucker, this workshop helps you and your team tame the whirlwind so you can better focus on the important goals that move you forward.
A John C. Maxwell staple. Leadership is influence, nothing more nothing less. Every member of a collective has some degree of influence with every other person in that collective. That means each team member has the opportunity to influence (lead) down, up, or sideways. Is your team aware of the influential power they have in every work interaction? By exploring all directions of influence, contributors are more strategically prepared to engage the people they serve, their peers, and those they work for.
Leading others begins with leading yourself. The self-aware leader knows how to utilize common personality and behavioral assessments to identify the strengths, weaknesses, and preferences at play within themselves and the teams they are on.
Since birth we've been taught - either directly or passively - right/wrong, good/bad, do/don't. Do we ever reflect on those beliefs and commitments? The "agreements" we've embraced profoundly affect our interactions with people. Longterm, impactful leadership hinges on proactively examining these powerful drive acrs s our behavior that often operate without our full awareness.
How do some people remain calm under pressure while others lash out? Why do even high-power contributors get derailed by petty disagreements? Understanding how the brain functions under stress gives you the power to choose habits that recalibrate and leverage the power of joy.
Accountability starts with you! or is it me? Funny how that works. None of us like it when a team member drops the ball and doesn't humbly own up to the mistake, but how diligently do you (do I) take personal responsibility for the work that needs to be done? We can help your team develop a lifestyle of personal accountability by learning to ask the right questions, owning what's yours and stopping the blame game.
Declined due to insufficient funds. Progress (like purchases) come to a screeching halt when you don't have the resources available to execute. Leaders are all too familiar with limits of funds, time, and materials. But what about relational collateral? Is it possible to have an insufficient amount of relational funds stored up with a colleague? How do you make deposits to ensure you never run low?
Hard conversations are just part of leadership... and many of us consider it the scariest part! But leaders who learn to master the art of tough talks can engage without fear, multiply their influence, and build great teams.
We all want to be better than "that one terrible boss we once had." Learning from others' mistakes is a brilliant strategy, but it's not passive. New leaders inevitably lead the way they were led unless they invest, reflect, and plan.
You have the word "manager" in your title. What does that mean? Does that make you a leader? What is the difference between the two? If you want your team or company to accomplish great things, defining expectations for leadership must be a top priority. This session is ideal for new leaders or leadership teams looking for a refresher on how to serve their people well.
How well do you know yourself? Would you be able to accurately explain to a colleague how you view the world and how you prefer to process your observations? Self-awareness is a cornerstone of personal contribution and leadership. Developing a working knowledge of personality preferences allows you to function at your best and at deeper levels of understanding to lead others more effectively.
