Organizations and their leaders face the need to become more agile due to their continuously changing environment. This module elaborates on how leaders should cope with job transitions, how to change their leadership style when needed and how to face contemporary challenges such as stress and burnout. You will not only strengthen your own leadership, you will also learn how to make your team a team of leaders.
Your Intensifying demands for high performance leadership are pressing teams and organizations everywhere to become more flexible and proactive. Senior-level executives at the helm of an organization are finding that effective leadership requires a skill set and capacity to lead that is both like and unlike what they have already experienced and learned. Today’s senior leaders need to think more strategically, communicate more persuasively, and act more decisively — all while developing the leadership of those around them.
This module focuses on strengthening your personal capacity to produce results and the capacity of others to do the same. Highly interactive, the module blends team exercises, case discussions, simulations and personal coaching sessions to help clarify your principles and goals and put them into practice. After this module, you will be able to expand your capacity to think strategically, communicate persuasively, and act decisively, and do so in a way that builds resilience in yourself, those around you and the organization.
We focus on
• take tangible actions to strengthen your own leadership and that of others

• coach and mentor high-potential managers who report to you
• learn to lead out and up, not just down
