Maximizing Your Leadership Potential
Are you new to management or shifting from project to people management?
If you are managing other people for the first time, you know that the shift from successful individual contributor to effective manager can be challenging. As a first-time manager or supervisor, your perspective expands, your responsibilities increase, and your ability to achieve goals requires a whole new level of people skills.
To be an effective leader, you need a solid understanding of your own leadership style, strengths and weaknesses—and an array of tactics for getting the best performance out of others.
Maximizing Your Leadership Potential is a three-day program designed to address your specific leadership challenges and prepare you to achieve results through leading others.
Who Should Attend
Maximizing Your Leadership Potential is for first-time managers—managers of individual contributors. These managers may have been recently promoted or are experiencing new pressures within their current management role.
Maximizing Your Leadership Potential tailors leadership development to the needs of employees in transition from individual contributors to managers.
The program immerses participants in four fundamental areas: self awareness, learning agility, communication and influence. In addition, issues that are particularly challenging for most first-time managers—managing conflict and building relationships—are also explored.
Throughout the three-day interactive program, managers will focus on specific skills and how-tos that they can set in motion right away. Participants will leave the program with a stronger connection to their roles as managers and are more prepared to drive action by leading others. Preview the program agenda
