People no longer want to be told what to do - they want to be engaged, they want to be inspired and they want you to assist them in reaching their goals. All this requires a different style of leadership to what worked in the past. This course shows you how.
You'll learn how the world's top 'modern managers' inspire, lead, engage and motivate their people to achieve extraordinary results and how you can apply these skills to your team.
The training is chunked into 31 short video segments with 9 downloadable worksheets to consolidate your learning and 4 self-assessments to check your understanding.
Set aside just 1 hour each week to complete 3 to 4 lessons and their related action steps and you will be able to complete the full course in 9 weeks (you can of course go faster or slower as you wish).
The course begins with three foundation sessions which give you a solid understanding of contemporary leadership. The program then coaches you through eight key strategies which will dramatically improve the performance of your team.
The introductory module answers the question 'What do leaders actually do?' and highlights the core strategy of the new leadership - make others feel capable, confident & strong. You'll learn:
In Foundation Session One we investigate the 6 all important, building blocks of a modern leadership style - a style that enables you to get the very best from those around you. You'll learn:
In Foundation Session 2 we investigate motivation – because without motivation the product doesn’t matter, the idea doesn’t matter because no one will take any action.
In Foundation Session 3 we highlight the importance of having your own personal 'leadership development plan'. You'll learn:
The course now moves up a gear and investigates the eight strategies essential to build a high performance workplace.
In Strategy 1 we look at the first action for any leader, set the direction, you must know where you are going if you expect others to join you on the journey, This is relatively familiar stuff but to be effective your team must also buy in to the direction. If there is no buy in you get compliance, if there is buy in you get commitment, engagement and discretionary effort. You'll learn:
In Strategy 2 we investigate the enormous, but often underrated importance of culture. You’ve probably heard Peter Drucker’s famous quote ‘culture eats strategy for breakfast’. Culture determines the way we do things around here. Culture determines the way your people talk, think and behave. Creating a great culture is essential for effective leadership. You'll learn:
Strategy 3 highlights the importance of leading by example. It's been said, that leadership is example, persuasion, and compulsion - in that order, Organisations and teams tend to become shadows of their leaders. In time your team will become a shadow of you. You'll learn:
In Startegy 4 we revisit the core premise of the course - make others feel capable, confident and strong - because it's only when people feel that way that you're likely to get the best from them. What you say can either make someone’s day or ruin their day. You'll learn:
The first thing anyone says about leading change is how easy it is to initiate and how hard it is to see it through. In Strategy 5 we begin by looking at how we react to change and then investigate a 6 step process for leading change in others. You'll learn:
In Strategy 6 we look at how to create a culture where people have a tremendous opportunity to be heard. You'll learn:
In Strategy 7 we investigate how to foster teamwork. Today everyone in every type of organisation says: ‘We can’t do it alone. It’s a team effort.’ Teamwork is essential in the modern workplace. You'll learn:
In Strategy 8 we look at how to handle adversity. The evidence suggests that how you and your people respond to adversity is a strong predictor of success. You'll learn:
In addition to the modules listed above you also receive a special bonus module:
