The Skills of an Effective Leader™

A Training and Development Workshop for Leadership Performance Excellence

Workshop Overview

Whether good or bad, the leader sets the tone in the workplace and directly affects worker commitment, job performance, and productivity. The Institute’s two-day interactive workshop, the Skills of an Effective Leader, provides a practical, hands-on process for both the new and seasoned 1st and 2nd level manager/leader to gain the knowledge and learn the skills and attitudes needed to create workplace environments that increase worker commitment and workplace productivity.

Our Process and Workshop Objectives

The Skills of an Effective Leader program is not a sit-and-soak event. Each participant will be engaged in the learning process and will be challenged to examine and learn specific tools that they can use to manage and lead people more effectively, in their real-life settings.

We Move Learners through Five Paths to help create Effective and Successful Leaders:

Path 1:         A look at the Practical Context for Leadership Theory and Skill Application

Path 2:         Experiential Development of Leadership Awareness, Attitudes, and Skills

Path 3:         Practices of Knowledge and Skills that create Transformational Leaders

Path 4:         Each Manager Develops a Plan for Personal Mastery of Leadership Skills beyond the Workshop

Path 5:         Establishing a Plan for Organizational Application*

* This applies to in-house programs only

One prominent leadership learning leader has pointed out that, \”99 percent of all leadership occurs not from the top, but from the middle.\” Ironically, leadership training has almost exclusively targeted leaders at the executive level. The importance of middle management leadership has often been overlooked, undervalued, or not delivered in a customized and powerful way.
