Description:

This workshop is designed to train individuals in many of the soft skills necessary to become a good leader. This workshop will also allow new trainers to focus on their own leadership styles, while giving senior leaders and HR personnel a methodology for training their new and emerging leaders by emulating the training later. This training is adaptive and flexible, thus allowing new leaders to ‘come up to speed’ with the use of stories and thoughts of more experienced participants as well as giving those experienced participants the ability to practice coaching to new leaders.

In addition, the assessment model of the training will allow participants to get a more objective view of their personality, a clearer understanding of what other types of personality are out there, the conflicts and cooperation that can emerge from those differences, and strategies for utilizing areas that they may not use by default but can consciously choose to master. The assessments being used during the training are free or very low cost, thus enabling the participant to later use them with their direct reports to help lead them into their own understanding of leadership as appropriate.

Learning Objectives:

By participating in this workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Understand fundamental differences in personality and the strengths/weaknesses of each.

2. Discuss strategies about how to work with colleagues that have a different personality/style than you.

3. Explain how and why people communicate differently during conflict.

4. Discuss methods to manage conflict through communication in a way that does not deter relationships.

5. Explain different values people have and how it motivates them.

6. Describe strategies to tap into an individual’s intrinsic and extrinsic motivation through leadership style.
