Leadership Fundamentals (Nomination Required)
Leadership Fundamentals is a cohort program for current or newly appointed leaders. The program begins with a focus on key leadership assessments and topics. Participants will learn leadership concepts and models, build specific skills, and practice mastery of those skills through real case studies and small group mentoring and coaching. Leaders will focus on how to continue to develop those skills and complete a targeted and specific individual leadership development plan.
Each part of this leadership program offers reflection, models and practice in leading effectively. Starting with self-reflection as a leader is the intentional pathway to interacting well with others. A commitment to all the sessions as a leadership cohort will provide the fundamental connections and collaborations to make learning meaningful, relevant and sustainable.
Part II: Building Relationships with Others
With a clearer understanding of your strengths, styles and approaches as a leader, we will engage in skill-building sessions that enhance your interpersonal relationships. We will refresh your active listening skills that provide the backbone to effective interactions.
Your understanding about why you would give feedback and how to give feedback, offers insights and ways you can address the nuances about how others hear and respond to feedback. Creating an open culture that gives feedback productively allows the flow of work and creativity to move forward and increase learning from our experiences.
We will define and demystify conflict by identifying typical conflict styles for you as leader and for others that will support choices for constructive conversations. These conversations intend to increase your insights and use the effective behaviors, sensitive to how conflict addresses, resolves and engages creative solutions.
Our work in understanding the factors and dynamics that foster collaboration will energize meetings and discussions. Understanding your own motivators and the motivations of others reinforces meaningful and productive relationships and collaborations.
Mentoring and coaching addresses how to engage others in thinking and planning for accomplishments. Being able to know the difference between coaching and mentoring provides a comprehensive approach for empowering others. Knowing how to delegate key tasks and how to communicate and coach others to accomplish those tasks establishes a clear path for achievements.
