As a leader, you are no longer an individual contributor and your recognition comes from the results produced by your team of direct-reports. Results are critical for your success as well as for your team members. The key to success is in how you write your goals. You will learn how to write goals to drastically increase your rate of success as well as your ability to hold people accountable. We will also explore another important aspect of leading for results, which is creating a vision that others want to follow.
Two important aspects of accomplishing goals are: first, measuring and tracking and second, giving and receiving feedback. Achieving a goal is much like nurturing a growing plant — requires care and tending along the way. If you plant corn in the spring without watering or fertilizing and come back in August expecting to have it for dinner, you may be disappointed. As a leader, you need to be checking in, coaching and providing feedback along the way to assure the goal is met by the deadline with all its elements intact.
What are your leadership styles? Yes, styles plural. Research shows that effective leaders use multiple styles for different circumstances. Awareness is the first step to broadening your repertoire of skills. Good leaders constantly assess the needs of their team and seek ways to provide development through proper training, coaching and feedback. In this webinar, we’ll focus on good techniques for supervisory oversight and keeping your team on the cutting edge of best practices.
Whether you are a good speaker who wants to hone your skills or someone who panics or gets tongue-tied when having to speak to a large group, this webinar will include techniques for speaking with ease in front of one or a hundred as well as simple things you can do to make the difference between being a good speaker and a great one.
This session addresses key skills in negotiations to apply at any level — beginner to advanced. During this webinar, you’ll learn rules, skills, tips and simple, actionable steps that bring big returns.
