Instruction and Delivery Format

The Instruction

Leadership

Participants discover their leadership character and how it can be best applied:

  • They become conscious of their style of managing and leading and the impact of that style on those around them, including direct reports, peers and managers.
  • They challenge and reassess their personal and professional vision, contribution and value.
  • Participants practice, hands-on, the skills and principles of effective leadership and communication.
  • Participants examine and plan ways to increase their contribution to the execution of their organization’s strategy.

Management

Awareness of leadership character is then focused by instruction on a universal framework for management:

  • Participants develop skill and confidence in the specific list of best practices that managers must perform to be most effective.
  • Participants learn how to navigate the dynamics of organizational interrelationships (managers, peers, direct reports).

Integration: Managerial Leadership

Leadership ability and management ability are then integrated.

  • Participants develop an understanding of, and confidence with, the specific accountabilities of a managerial leader.
  • They learn to use the tension between leading and managing, to step out from behind checklists and to focus their whole selves on attaining personal and organizational goals.
