What You’ll Learn

Discover your unique strengths as a leader and develop additional competencies that will help you achieve the skills and characteristics that can push you to the next level of success as a leader in your organization. Work through others in a trusting and dynamic relationship to gain connection, cooperation, and collaboration. 

Expect Thoroughly Trained Trainers: The participants in Develop Your Leadership Potential: Stop Doing, Start Doing are made up of both formal and informal leaders. Psychological Safety is emphasized to create a safe place to try out new skills and ideas. The trainers are highly vetted and undergo intense training that is ISO9002 certified to achieve consistent results globally. While part of a global organization, they are connected to your local culture, customs and language.

Expect Breakthroughs: Each time a new skill is introduced, it is practiced the ‘right’ way and coached in the moment before moving it out into your life and work. Once a skill has been tested with clients, team members, and others, the group holds itself accountable by reporting back on what did or did not work. This social learning approach makes it possible for everyone to learn from each other’s efforts. By experiencing a series of successful attempts with positive reinforcement, habits are changed, and new skills are ingrained.

Why You Want To Learn It

We assume that a high-performance employee can immediately translate into a high-performance leader. The fact is that the skillset and mindset are completely different and the transition can be hard. It’s hard on new leaders because they have to shift from relying on themselves to relying on others for results. It’s hard on the organization because it loses the work output from their prior role to gain a leader who is learning on the job.

“I manage a remote team of engineers around the world. Communication is such a key factor for me, and many of my day to day struggles are linked to communication. Without a doubt I’ll use the tools and techniques I’ve learnt … to improve the communication with them to build better, strong relationships and ultimately have a more satisfied, engaged and enthusiastic team.”
Neil Tomkinson
Supply Development Manager, NSG Pilkington
“At work, I’ll be applying myself differently. I’ll be more assertive in the right way and I’ll be driving the team to deliver the results we need. The organization will be a happier place, my colleagues will have deeper respect because I’ll address the areas I’ve shied away from, and overall we’ll just generate more revenue and gross profit for the company.”
