Come participate in three hours of lecture, activities, and highly interactive group sharing about the nature of great leadership. We will explore how each of us finds the greatest leadership potential in ourselves, and how that reflects in our work and lives.
The class will be broken roughly into three sections:
Hour 1: Finding the great leader within...
What are the habits of great leaders? What is the difference between a leader-first leader, and a servant-first leader? What are your challenges, and what tools and practices can you use to change your habits, and truly unlock your potential? We will share stories, exercises, and games to help us feel what it truly means to be a servant leader.
Hour 2: Leading as the Servant Leader
How do you bring these practices to those you lead? What are the benefits, and challenges of leading as a servant or catalyst leader? What are the rules for leading others effectively, and what are the traps that can sabotage a leaders’ relationships with those they seek to serve? Participate in group discussions sharing real life challenges that we will solve together as a group.
Hour 3: Working with Non-Leaders
When working in any organization, there are always those who challenge us. We can demonize them, have venting sessions with coworkers about them, or simply end up avoiding them, but they are a fact of life in the work place. How do we allow ourselves to be as effective as possible in working with these challenging non-leaders? How do we manage their impact on those we lead? How do we minimize the negative impact on our organization? Let’s talk about real non-leader challenges and look at real life, practical solutions that can help ease the impact of non-leaders.
