Leadership Development Sessions 

Friday, October 18
Setting Your Followers on Fire!
In the tightest labor market in decades, keeping the people you have is vital. This session opens with a discussion of the traits great leaders possess. Then we’ll move on to the common mistakes leaders make (micromanaging, failing to define expectations, criticizing rather than coaching and more) and how to avoid them. Then we’ll discuss what really motivates people (no more Maslow’s Hierarchy – we’ll review something better!). If you want to get more from your employees, if you want to raise morale (without raising pay), or if you just want to hang on to your top talent, you won’t want to miss this.

How to Lead Everyone Who is Not You
Life would be so easy if everyone on our team was just like us. They would understand our cryptic e-mail messages, forgive our bizarre text messages, and understand why we unfriended them on Facebook. There would be no hard feelings, no conflict, and clearly, world peace. Unfortunately, no one else is exactly like you and to succeed in life and business, you must work with the crazy, the angry, the silly, and yes, even the smarter and more articulate. This session will help you do just that. You will:

  • Learn about common barriers to communication and how to remove them.
  • Take a communication styles quiz and find out just how different a large portion of the world really is and how to lead them more effectively. (You can take the tool back after the program to use with your own team.)
  • Learn how to alter your delegating and coaching to be more effective with the different styles.
  • Become such a great leader, your team will name their children after you . . . or at least show up on time.
