After years of being surrounded by great people, leaders can lose focus of the simple things that drive people engagement and results. They may also be unaware of actions that lead to employee disengagement and unplanned attrition. No matter how seasoned the leader, senior leader development is an opportunity to reinforce and refresh critical skills.
While most senior leaders will have a high IQ and technical skills, it is so important they also have EQ. A little dose of humility and self-awareness that demonstrates their leadership skills are still evolving as they model behaviors for the younger generations is so important at this level.
Our Most Popular Programs:
Executive DX™ for Senior Leadership Off-Site
EDX™ executive off-site is a fun, engaging, yet challenging experience for executives and senior leader off-sites and retreats. Leadership is like golf; you can never perfect it. So, this acts as a way to hone those leadership skills that everyone assumes are hardwired at this level, yet always in need of recalibration. The experience also doubles up as both a learning event for the leaders and a cultural barometer of the team’s psychological safety metrics that their organization, business, function, or team witnesses every day. Using our CARE™ model and BARS assessment, the team will not only acquire valuable leadership insight, it will also get an assessment of the culture.
The Feedback Shift™ – Creating a Culture of Continuous Improvement
This 4-hour session will have everyone re-thinking what they believed feedback is all about. It shifts the thinking and behavior from a negative experience to a positive one - one focused purely on "every day is a chance to do and be better." What is considered cynical and judgmental shifts to positive communication that allows us to continuously improve. No one wants to hear their bosses' opinions and negativity, but they do want to hear the truth and what can be done better. The power of continuous improvement and delivery of positive communication builds relationships.
We shift leaders' thinking from feedback as a performance management process, to a daily positive habit of continuous improvement. Fiction to facts.
The Empowerment Shift™ – Unleashing the Inner Potential of Your Team
This 4-hour session will challenge leaders' assumptions on where they think they are on the command and control versus empowerment spectrum of leadership. Individuals want to feel like they have a choice at work, and now it is expected. If you tell your team members what to do every day you steal their autonomy, and they will eventually fight or flight. Arming leaders with some simple empowerment habits on relinquishing control and not having to have all the answers will create a culture where teams are more creative, innovative, and self-sufficient. This experience will show the power of autonomy.
We shift leaders' thinking from one of command and control to one which allows their teams to think for themselves. Ask more; tell less.
