The Inner Game of Highly Effective Leaders
How can you develop 21st century leadership skills, enhance the effectiveness of your work team and advance your career?
Embrace the inner game of leadership and the habits of self-knowledge, self-management and on-going reflection. Leaders set the tone for the effectiveness or dysfunction of their group. Those who pay attention to their own inner game will create a team environment in which everyone wins.
In the context of this presentation, leadership is defined as being exercised by all who wish to make a difference and contribute to the organizationâ€™s mission not just those who hold a hierarchical title.
What You Will Learn:
Â· We will explore adult stages of development and leadership styles in order to identify the ones that are most effective in todayâ€™s diverse and complex workplace.
Â· You will learn how emotional mastery, self-awareness and daily routines of planning and reflection contribute to your leadership effectiveness.
Â· And, you will discover that the best leaders work on themselves first in order to produce optimal results.
What does the inner game of 21st century leadership looks like? Hint: it is not at all like the previous centuryâ€™s â€śorganization manâ€ť paradigm.
You will come away from this session with many practical and surprising techniques to bring out your best, most effective, self in both everyday and crisis situations. Youâ€™ll become a better leader and your team and those who work with you will reflect the change in you!
