As a leader you have many challenges to juggle daily and there are times when we are so focused on the target, we forget to look down and back and see if our team is following. Your role is to get the job done, but it is also to be accountable to your team and encourage them on their journey, not to be dragged behind on yours.
This experience allows you to evaluate what kind of leader you are and offers techniques and steps to ensure you have a process in place to nurture and guide each member to be their best.
Learn to be worthy to walk among the greatest leaders in the world by ensuring your footsteps are worthy of being followed.
As the world has been challenged with creating new ways to navigate the future, leaders have been stretched to consider not only their role in the big picture, but to consider the changes their individual team members are experiencing on a personal level.
Recognizing the stress others are facing, helps to put in-check, demands that leaders may ask of their teams.
This session helps leaders evaluate their tendencies and to challenge old thinking processes. With teams working both in person and remotely, a new mindset is required to ensure all members have equal opportunities to contribute, to be acknowledged and receive the support to excel in their roles.
Choose Your Influence
Every day we make decisions. Those decisions are formed by what we believe, and what we believe is influenced by what hear and see. With such a variety of influences in our life it can be difficult to know if what you choose to stand up for, is actually something created on a solid foundation or on a pillar of sand.
This experience challenges our thoughts and beliefs so that we can make truly educated decisions based on facts. When we dig under the foundation of some thoughts and issues, we may not find secure footings but flimsy, fast-talking opinions that sound impressive, but are incorrect or exaggerated.
You will evaluate what you allow to influence your thoughts, so that you can decide what support you will be ready to stand on and be remembered for. You will contemplate the value of your decisions as your thoughts and actions will influence others.
To be truly effective – in good times and in times of great challenge – leaders must master the ability to influence others. Without the ability to influence the minds and hearts of your teams, you may reach your goals, but it will take time and effort.
Effective leaders don’t command; they inspire, persuade, and encourage. Leaders tap the knowledge and skills of a group, point individuals toward a common goal, and draw out a commitment to achieve results.
This session starts by exploring your own values and goals when applying influence, because with the wrong intension, influence can morph into manipulation. By focusing on your intention, you can be assured that your influence comes from a place of authenticity and has the greatest impact on your organization.
