Effective Leadership: It’s not Just Positional; It’s Personal
Leading Through Adversity
Leaders persuade and influence others through high-impact Communication
Leaders are expected to possess conceptual, human, technical, and political skills. Leaders need to be sensible and willing to learn. Leaders need to be flexible and fair. Leaders need to be intense and at the same time somewhat humble. You don’t need a title to be a leader.
Position power is the extent to which leaders have rewards, punishments, and sanctions. Position power comes from the organization. Personal power is the extent to which you can gain the confidence and trust of those people that you’re attempting to influence. It’s the cohesiveness or commitment between leaders and followers.
Effective leaders are communicators that build and sustain both positional and personal power!
Participants will learn:
the six criteria of personal credibility
the top ten characteristics of effective leaders
the three skills to long-term effectiveness
how to select appropriate situational leadership styles
how to take charge and grow winners
