Leading @ the Speed of Change:
Navigating New Chapters, Challenges and Choices
One-Day Workshop October 26, 2017
Over-Managed and Under-Led
Employee engagement, customer satisfaction, safety, and quality, are slipping in many organizations being challenged to do more with less. This is often because organizations are over-managed and under-led. Research shows that high performing teams and organizations balance the “hard” discipline of systems, processes, and technology management on a “soft” base of effective people leadership. Every organization is ultimately only as good as its people.
Leaders at all Levels
Organizations that succeed will be those where everyone across the organization is equipped to adapt to and excel in constant change.
Today, more than ever, organizations look to everyone, at all levels, to think and act like leaders. The key is to first create inner self-leadership, which ultimately will determine how people perform in their roles and help move the organization forward. Leading with the heart inspires higher energy and commitment to meaningful change toward more successful outcomes for everyone.
Changing Times Demand Great Leadership
Leadership is clearly the key to success. Strengthening those “soft skills” to build high-performing management teams and organizational cultures has always been important. In today’s turbulent times it’s critical. Despite all the talk about leadership and change, many “change fatigued” leaders struggle with just how to strengthen personal effectiveness and leadership.
