Workshop Topics Include:

Lead as you manage – 

Participants will explore the characteristics of leaders versus managers and discuss when and how to leverage the strengths of each role. Using the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, participants will discuss strengths and risks of each type; challenging participants to flex and practice working with team members different from themselves. The day will conclude by launching the powerful communication section; reviewing the elements of communication, which can lead, and inspire high-performing teams and touch on how you can communicate clear goals and delegate work.  

Build your Skills – 

Participants will focus on strengthening the foundational skills needed to be a productive, organized, and motivational leader building on the elements of communication explored in Workshop 1. The participants will learn Thomas Kilmann Conflict quadrants and the process of a conversation, which can enable them to approach conversations and conflict with a positive mindset and exchange critical information to push projects and teams forward.

Managers will be given a chance to evaluate their executive presence and influencing skills while exploring how to grow their presentation skills.

One of the most crucial characteristics of a manager or leader is developing and coaching others. We will leverage the conversation about influencing and begin to explore how participants can coach and give feedback to their team members.

The Power of the Team – 

The foundation of every high-performing team is trust. Trust in the workplace can seem intangible. Participants will explore the elements of workplace trust and examine how they can increase trust in their current teams. Managers will learn Tuckman’s stages of teaming and self-assess where their current teams are within the cycle. The elements which lead to highly motivated teams will be discussed which include: working within your strengths, sharing vision and values, intrinsic versus extrinsic rewards. The diversity of teams and how to ensure that all members of the team are heard belong and are all working toward the shared vision and goals will be explored through an animated activity.
