Transforming the way you live and work in the world

Leading Others for the First Time

Principles and Practice of Management for the Emerging Leader


Becoming a successful manager requires the development of
new skills such as team building, delegation, supervision and
performance management.

>>
   

Becoming a successful manager also requires embracing new perspectives and values. For example: what does it mean to become accountable not just for your own performance, but for that of others? How do you manage the need to expand the range of your personal and professional presence? Are there things you need to “give up” to make such a transition successfully?


In this program, you will better understand the competencies required to make the shift in orientation from that of individual contributor to manager of others. You will increase your ability to get work done through others and to adopt the essential mindset and values that build the foundation for a successful career as a leader.


This program emphasizes the practical application of GISC leadership concepts and on building the leader within, rather than just focusing on theory. Through experiential activities such as individual and small group exercises, assessments, large group presentations and discussions, you will learn
and practice important communication skills, managing and developing others, working with resistance to change, and refining your leadership presence. You will also have the opportunity to identify your own unique strengths and development needs as a new leader.

“Already a seasoned professional, I moved to a new area and faced many challenges adjusting to changes in my personal and professional life. The Skills for Influential Leadership class helped me reevaluate the value and skills I bring to the table. I left the three-day program with renewed interest in collaboration and problem solving as well as a renewed sense of confidence. I can’t wait to go back to another program.”

“This program was a big help for me. I learned a lot about myself and several simple tools that improved my ability to work with and lead others on my team as well as my clients. I learned how to recognize and set aside some of my own assumptions about people and the challenges we were facing. This has allowed me to see new opportunities and solutions for moving my organization forward.”
