Foundations Program - Leading with Impact

GK# 8617

Course Overview


Leadership has changed over the last twenty years. With increased complexity, changing technologies, diverse workforces, and escalating pressures for bottom-line performance, leading others requires new perspectives and approaches. It also requires leveraging time-honoured fundamentals of effective management. By blending these elements, leaders can more effectively guide their teams with greater impact for their organizations, their teams, and themselves.

The Leading with Impact Foundations Program provides a comprehensive and holistic approach to leadership based on insights from quantitative research, best practices, client requests, and over twenty years of leadership training experience. In this new, highly participative two-day program, you will learn and practice the core elements leaders need to embrace managing others with positivity, authenticity, accountability, curiosity, and trust -- from understanding how you demonstrate leadership and the resulting impacts, to motivating others for full engagement, communicating successfully, delegating deliberately, and providing effective feedback.
