Inspiring Trust

Recent workforce studies have shown that the number-one cited characteristic of an effective leader is trust. Great leaders don’t dictate, they in-influence, and influence comes from your ability to engender credibility and inspire people to believe you, and believe in you. When your team members trust you as a leader, they readily volunteer their best efforts.

Learn to how trust helps you produce better results faster; adopt the specific behaviors that build and maintain trust; identify the taxes low trust exacts on the ability of your team to achieve your team’s purposes; and increase attention on critical objectives instead of politics and hidden agendas.

Clarifying Your Team’s Purpose and Strategy

One of the hallmarks of great leaders is their ability to motivate their teams toward worthy objectives. The problem is that in many organizations, workers may know the handful of tasks that makes up their job description, but they often don’t understand how their work contributes to the objectives that drive the organization forward. Effective leaders can focus their team on a clear purpose, and help workers understand how their work connects to the organization’s mission and strategy.

Learn to link the work of your team to the organization’s mission and objectives; apply a proven model to work the economic drivers of the organization; understand the specific job your team was hired to do; and create a clear purpose statement that motivates and inspires your team.

Closing The Execution Gap

Ram Charan, author of the best-selling book "Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done," points out that a mediocre strategy that is well-executed is infinitely more valuable than a great strategy that simply sits on a shelf. The fact is, no results are ever achieved without execution. So good leaders get things done, but great leaders get the right things done.

Learn to identify the two or three key, difference-making goals for your team; implement lead measures that predict the achievement of the goals; create a compelling, motivating scoreboard to show progress; and build a cadence of accountability that creates laser-like focus on the goals.

Building Process Excellence

All organizations have processes. From reconciling financial records to evaluating vendors.Processes and systems are the means through which work gets done. But what happens when a process or system is misaligned with the desired results or if the process is dependent on one person to manage it? Great leaders know how to implement and improve key work processes that truly streamline and facilitate the achievement of results.

Learn to identify the core processes your team’s work relies on, use a powerful analyzer tool to expose inefficiencies--and potential breakdowns--in your work processes, implement a means of improving the processes that your team uses, and create processes that ensure ongoing success, in-dependent of any one person.

Unleashing Talent

One of the greatest challenges for organizational leaders is to be able to tap into and leverage the unique talents and abilities of every member of their team. Today’s workers are better educated than ever before and they have more choice about where to apply their talents. They are looking for roles in which the full breadth of their abilities is valued. Great leaders are able to focus these talents on achieving the organization’s most pressing objectives.

Learn to help team members define a unique contribution based on their native talents and abilities; understand the three leadership conversations to clarify performance expectations, help team members find their voice, and clear the path of obstacles to progress; and adopt a system for ensuring the right people are in the right roles.

Leading Across Generations 

For the first time in history there are four distinct generations in the workforce: Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and Millennials … all with their own perspectives, styles, and expectations. Unfortunately, where there are differences, there are often conflicts. But what if leaders could leverage the differences between generations instead of simply eliminating conflict?

Learn to understand the specific differences between the generations that make up today’s workforce, resolve the points of friction where one generation’s style or perspective is likely to conflict with those of another generation, explore different “point of friction” scenarios using included reference cards to find solutions, and follow a powerful 21-day implementation plan to put your new understanding of the generations into practice.
