Leadership Essentials Part 1 – Pack of 8 Courses


1. Four Steps to Effective Communication - DISC as Your Powerful Leadership Guide

Duration: 60 Minutes
Why You Should Attend:

Your success in life – both professional and personal – is determined in large part by how well you interact with others. Your ability to effectively relate, communicate, influence and motivate others is a crucial skill in creating successful relationships with customers, prospects, colleagues, subordinates, managers, friends and family members. You have probably noticed it is very easy to get along with certain people. You almost instantly and effortlessly understand the other person.

Unfortunately, with most people communication takes more effort. It does not flow easily. You cannot quite understand where the other person is coming from, what they really want, and what their intentions are. In this course, you’ll learn a system for understanding human behaviors that is simple to learn and simple to use. You’ll learn how you are and how others perceive you. You’ll also be able to pick up specific features from others so that you can better understand them. And, most productively, you’ll learn how to adjust your communication style to achieve your goals.

3. Leaning In to the Power of a Remote or Mobile Workplace

Duration: 60 Minutes
Why You Should Attend:

Every workplace has a culture. The challenge is if a company wants to have an R/M workforce, even if just a small part of its workforce, then to embrace that and build that mindset into the workplace culture through every piece and part of its ranks. The idea that R/M relationships enhance not just the employee’s life but the company’s mission as well. When that is in place, everyone is encouraged by an R/M plan rather than discouraged, even those who do work in the office.After all working R/M is just a different way/place to work – not different work. If the company management doesn’t consider R/M workforces as an “an alternative arrangement/schedule” then no one else will. Unsuccessful R/M plans commonly start small and then take on a life of their own, growing and rambling into a sudden hodgepodge of weedy work arrangements. If you do not “grow” a disaster of an R/M plan, you will not have one to dismantle.

Areas Covered:

  • How to weigh the productivity argument vs the creativity and collaboration argument for your own company – not anyone else’s.
  • The 14 things you need to see in your employees to know if they will be successful working on their own.
  • Helping your R/M employees be as successful (or more) working elsewhere compared to in the office.
  • Managing from the outside in – the 12 things you need to see (and not see) in your managers to know they can successfully manage R/M employees.
  • How to “see”, encourage, and capture innovative leadership emerging in unexpected places and within unexpected people – when you don’t see them every day.
  • Unleashing the ambitions that are alive in everyone and keeping their goals aligned with your company even if those people are not physically on site.
  • Negative Disrupting Dysfunctional Managers – usually hiding in plain sight; what to do about them and with them. Because they will ruin (or try to ruin) all your R/M plans and their R/M employees arrangements, if not their careers.
  • What to do with employees at the office who are losing productivity worrying about what others are doing at home ore elsewhere.
  • Creating a workplace with a cohesive culture – without creating a stereotype of what manifests “success”, or on whom success is modeled and that success is not dependent on where someone’s physical worksite is located.
  • Encouraging and embracing independence – putting people in charge of their own career paths vs. the company assigning one.
  • How to create the benefits of an R/M workplace without anyone working outside the office.
