Are leaders born or made? Some believe that great leaders are hard-wired with charisma, vision and a natural capacity to lead. Others believe that extraordinary job competence automatically prepares them to be outstanding managers. In many cases, new managers find themselves in roles for which they are unprepared. As a result, they may avoid managing much at all, or continue to do things as they see fit without realizing how they are impacting their team. Research indicates that leadership is indeed a skill that can be learned, and many of us have the potential to become good, or even great leaders.
If you are leading a fast growing organization as a founder, have recently been promoted to a position of leadership, or just want to brush up on your management skills, this workshop will guide you along the initial, critical steps towards transitioning into leadership. In this lunchtime session you will learn how to:
- Delve into the misconceptions that cause new leaders to stumble
- Organize a roadmap for your leadership journey
- Develop trust within your team by assessing your own “trust equation”
The "How to... Workshop" series is dedicated to giving you the keys to a successful business, from creation to exit. As with all our events, the "How to... Workshop" is interactive and informal so bring your questions with you!
