Transformational Leadership Course Descriptions:

Top leaders define vision. They need to possess the knowledge and skills that are critical to achieving business results. An organization's success increases when all employees:

  • Know where the organization is going,
  • See a compelling reason for change,
  • Express support for using skills learned during training,
  • Support and encourage their work groups' efforts to form effective partnerships with internal and external customers.

COMMUNICATING FOR LEADERSHIP SUCCESS (4 hours)
This is the foundation for each of our leadership certificates. This course teaches leaders how to get results through people. Tools necessary for a successful "leadership journey" will be presented. Participants acquire a set of proven interaction skills, discover seven Leadership Imperatives key to meeting today's challenges, and realize their role as a catalyst leader who inspires others to act.

THE EXTRAORDINARY LEADER: GOING FROM GOOD TO GREAT   (8 Hours)
This workshop is designed to help leaders develop the specific competencies needed to produce extraordinary results in their organizations and uses practical applications of research detailed in the book, The Extraordinary Leader: Turning Good Managers into Great Leaders, by Zenger and Folkman.

STRATEGIES FOR INFLUENCING OTHERS (4 Hours)
Influential Leadership helps leaders get their good ideas heard, accepted, and enacted. Leaders learn influencing strategies and how to package ideas to gain the commitment of even the most skeptical coworkers and partners.

PROBLEM ANALYSIS AND DECISION MAKING (8 Hours)
This workshop provides tools that enable leaders to solve problems proactively and gain others' commitment to solutions and decisions. Leaders will make high-quality, effective decisions and learn to recognize how personal bias, tunnel vision, and marginal commitment influence decisions

RETAINING TALENT (4 Hours)
By taking a proactive approach to retaining people, leaders can create an environment in which people feel valued and satisfied in their jobs. You will learn to identify what it takes to keep employees happy and satisfied, and how to conduct "quick check" discussions critical for retaining valuable employees.

DEVELOPING YOURSELF AND OTHERS (4 Hours)
Provides leaders, coaches, and mentors with the necessary skills and a practical process to develop talent. It focuses on a leader's critical role before, during, and after the development plan.
