Preparing for the Next Level of Leadership
Your future is at stake. Are you ready to take the next step in career advancement? In today’s cutthroat world, organizations are looking for more than technical expertise and in-depth job knowledge; they’re looking for leaders—individuals who demonstrate a deep understanding of people. Risk-takers with an eye for opportunity and the ability to take advantage of innovations. People who are striving for greatness and working hard to achieve their goals. Make yourself a contender by mastering today’s top leadership skills! Believe it or not, great leaders aren’t born, they create themselves by working on their personal and professional skills.

Managing Generational Differences
Organizations have employees from multiple generations who have perceptions … and misperceptions … about coworkers from different generations. Learn how to overcome the stereotypes that build walls instead of bridges and how to tap into the unique strengths and contributions of each generation.

Workplaces have staff made up of those fresh out of college, parents of young children, the 40-plus age group who are paying for their children’s college tuition while saving for retirement, the middle-aged middle managers who wonders if their advancement opportunities have dried up, and the 55 and over workers who have vast knowledge and experience and years left to give to the workplace. Each group has its own needs, its own goals, and its own belief system. And you need all of them to work in harmony to produce the best possible results in the shortest possible time.

2lst Century Leadership Tools
Moving from the ranks of managing and supervising people to truly embracing leadership is a daunting task for many complicated by the diverse types of people, projects, personalities, and the layers of hierarchy you have to handle with tact, respect, and diplomacy all the while maintaining credibility at all levels. You may be asking “how will I handle all of these issues effectively as a leader? What approach is the best approach?”

Of the numerous leadership styles and approaches to use in the workplace, the situational leadership concept is a tried and true model that is still effective and contributes to building leadership traits: mentoring, coaching, championing, collaborating, delegating, brainstorming, providing clear direction. The foundation for all this is a solid understanding of your team and the individuals you are leading.

This session utilizes cases studies and concepts from the situational leadership model as well as tools on how to communicate as a leader to create a collaborative, dynamic, synchronistic, and highly functioning team.
