Good leadership ability rarely comes naturally. It is taught and developed. The new and/or emerging role of the supervisor is explored. Through this module, the new supervisor will learn how to translate their strategy into operational results.
Most leaders today recognize the imperative to change – yet only a handful can create effective change in their teams, divisions, and organizations. Those that do understand this have mastered change leadership.
This workshop enables you to learn how to master change leadership yourself. Understand what it takes to lead change, whether the task is successfully moving downstream change received from top leaders above or making the hard swim upstream with changes called for from below. Learn critical change leadership concepts and practices, receive a rock-solid change process, and walk away with tools that allow you to move beyond change management to change leadership.
In this two-day course assess your performance in leading a current change effort and capture major elements of change with a Blueprint for Change. Communicate change messages with clarity and power and learn strategies for identifying and removing obstacles to change. Identify tactics for successfully leading both upstream and downstream change.
Managing time in today’s fast paced, constantly changing business environment and growing workload takes analysis, practice, planning – and time! However, if control over time is lost, so is control over employee performance and achievement. This program helps participants to get control of their time. They will learn how to use time management as a tool to become more fully organized, and to apply specific management principles to create disciplines and structures in their lives. They will “work smart.”
In response to today’s complex world of work, organizations have increasingly turned to work teams in one form or another. This fundamental shift holds the promise of increased performance, better decision-making, improved service quality, and greater motivation and commitment. However, the use of work teams presents numerous unique challenges that coincide with these potential benefits. This session lays the groundwork for a deeper understanding of how teams function in the aggregate, as well as how individuals perform within team settings. Specific topics include building and maintaining high performance teams, ensuring the quality of team decision-making, and other team leadership tools.
(Exercises and Case Studies will be handed out before the workshop and used throughout both days.)
