Successful leaders are assertive leaders – but what does that mean? And how can someone who isn’t naturally assertive become more so to be an effective leader?

In this Keys to Success webinar, you will learn the importance of assertiveness to become an effective leader in your organization. You will learn to build on your strengths and eliminate weaknesses, enabling you to develop a winning attitude.

They build up credibility through consistent action and leadership. They listen and provide support, thereby laying the groundwork for future support and influence. In this Keys to Success Webinar, you will learn the characteristics you need to have, and actions you need to take, to get maximum results from people who don’t work directly for you. You’ll learn how to influence others by building authentic trust, credibility, and respect, thereby gaining their willing cooperation when you need it most.

In order to be a truly effective manager, you must be comfortable delegating work and ensuring your employees are accountable for delivery.

Effective delegation helps develop individuals and achieve specific organizational outcomes. Learn how to identify who is ready for delegation using a reliable and collaborative process, and become prepared to determine "who will do what, when, and to what standard?" in your day-to-day role.
Employees are open to influence and motivation. "If you tell me what to do, I will do it to protect my job. But if you inspire me to do it, I will do it to the best of my ability."

Great managers develop high-performance teams that get results because they know how to lead a team, not just manage it. This program will smooth your transition from individual contributor to supervisor to leader. You will learn the basics like delegation, time management, and performance appraisal techniques, and gain insights into the more advanced aspects of leadership needed to inspire and motivate teams.
