Leaders hold the key to engaging and motivating their teams. Leading For Results provides a model for understanding the lenses through which we see the world and a framework for directing, delegating, motivating and coaching for maximum results.
As a result of the Leading For Results Workshop participants will:
- Understand their leadership style and the strengths and limitations of their style
- Identify ways to adapt their approach to work more effectively with other styles including their employees, colleagues and manager
- Improve their effectiveness in directing and delegating
- Learn to create an environment for motivation
- Develop skills for coaching and developing others
- Acquire sills for facilitating meetings that achieve results
- Gain confidence for engaging in difficult conversations
This workshop is designed to be two days. It incorporates the Everything DiSC® Management profile and Everything DiSC 363 multi-rater assessment (sample assessments attached in email)
Throughout the sessions, emphasis will be placed on identifying and developing action steps around implementing ideas and skills on a day-to-day basis.
Firmly rooted leadership values—integrity, commitment, and clear values—may occur naturally sometimes, but most leaders are too busy to stop and think about the inner roots of quality leadership. Leading Inside Out is an intense experience that resets leaders to think more deeply and commit to their values and beliefs. LIO enables leaders to become the kind of leader that others want to follow by:
- Understanding what it means to lead
- Establishing their leadership foundation
- Meeting their leadership challenges
- Meeting the expectations of those they serve
Leading Inside Out is a simple but powerful program. It is an intense one-and-a-half day experience of facing the challenges of leadership in order to realize the basis of an approach to inner leadership.
During the session, best practices in instructional design, process facilitation, and adult learning are utilized to create a dynamic learning environment, including individual reflection, small- and large-group discussions, planning, and application exercises.
The program can be enhanced by an (optional) Management Alignment session where senior leadership demonstrates support for this grounded approach. Some companies find it more effective to put the senior leadership team through LIO first.
Leading Inside Out can be delivered for larger companies it may be more efficient and effective to develop a group of facilitators who can implement a large program and provide ongoing support.
Leading Inside Out provides a strong beginning, but what follows to sustain the changed perspective and performance needs to be organic to the organization. LIO strongly encourages leaders to share the Leadership Framework created in the program with their people to enhance accountability and to bring clarity of vision, values, and direction. Optimally, senior leaders who attend LIO to lead by example will also share their Leadership Framework with their managers and others. In some organizations, participants’ managers schedule conversations soon after LIO and at regular intervals.
Great companies create a Culture of Engagement with all employees aligned to Corporate Values and Goals such that employees body language and words change from “they” to “we” and they dedicate themselves to the same cause to achieve common successes.
Unfortunately, most companies fail to create an environment where corporate goals trickle down to the lowest person in the organization and most employees cannot even name their company’s Mission, Vision and Values.
The proposed solution is a fusion of proven Leadership development principles coupled with mobile application to help individuals understand the importance of Values and Goals as well as techniques to become more productive. The values and Goals are also aligned with corporate Goals and Values.
Participants not only rediscover corporate goals and values, but also see how corporate goals and values align with their individual goals and values. Mobile technology is then leveraged to keep track of goals, values, tasks, etc. in such a way that participants get to practice the class learning every day till they develop habits to become a more effective and efficient leader.
