The Importance of Leadership


Leaders must be home grown since leadership cannot be learned from courses offered in universities.


Consequently, without leadership development training, many organizations will never make teams work or lead the charge for change.

Personal leadership assumes that you have little authority, but want to lead. It's for those who want to exert influence during "moments of truth," which occur in normal conversation with another person.

This is a good program for those that wish to move up to being a supervisor or who want to learn the leadership side of project management.

 
This is an Image of Ben Franklin. A symbol of the European enlightenment. Franklin was also a successful writer, publisher, entrepreneur, scientist, government sector administrator, politician and diplomat -- a rare individual who was a leader in many different fields and did require on organization to do so.    


Upcoming Online Courses & Classes

This program presents the foundation leadership skills one uses in a variety of contexts. But primarily, we focus on "moments of truth" between you and other. We assume you DO NOT want to use your organizational position or authority to get compliance. So we focus on other types of leadership techniques and methods that allow you to influence, motivate and persuade.

    "The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority." -- Ken Blanchard



    Many managers and executives depend too much on their authority -- a limited source of power that doesn’t work well on peers and the boss. Consequently, they fail to get the results they want.

    Additionally, many individuals rely too much on positional influence, rather than developing personal influence. Positional influence is typically limited and constrained, but personal influence is something that can be grown and expanded. Another fact limiting influence, is that many tend to act selfishly like dragons hoarding their gold; rather than socially, like philanthropists who spread the wealth of their influence to benefit others.

    This class expands your knowledge by providing practical influence techniques.  You learn about:

    How to project EXPERTISE.


    Ways one can use developmental COACHING.


     The Nature of building CHARISMA.


     Using VISION—The Power of Setting Expectations.


    If you are taking Foundations to Great Leadership concentration, positive reinforcement, punishment, relationships, and persuasion is covered in other Full Classes.

Major Competencies


Work Motivation.

    • Let's face it, you cannot get the behavior you want or decrease the behaviors you don't want, without expertise in motivation. You will learn the most important behavioral theory in psychology.
Verbal Communication. 
    • Just because you have two ears, don't mean you know how to listen. Just because you have a mouth, doesn't mean you can communicate. 
Must Know Leadership Concepts. 
    • Experience teaches us little. You will learn the basics, assess you own skill, know where you are weak and know where you are strong. 
Social Influence
    • Most people inside organizations rely too much on their authority. Big mistake. Find out the types of influence you should develop if you want people to follow you. 
Group Dynamics 
    • Much of your work life will be spend in a group setting, yet few of us know much about triumphs, trials and tribulations about working in a group.


Who Will Benefit

Smart people up there game before they need to play. This is, those on the fast track prepare themselves ahead of time for greater responsibility.  When the door of opportunity opens, they are ready to step through it. You may want to:

    • Prosper as a team leader. A tough role to play. Typically, you have all the responsibilities of a supervisor with none of the authority.
    • Get your ducks in a row — be a project manager. Leadership is important here since one (ideally) can evolve the group into a team.
    • Prepare to be a supervisor. It's long been known, supervisors don't lose that job because of lack of technical skills, they lack people skills.
    • Hop onto the fast track. Most organizations (although they won't say so) have identified a pool to promote quickly. These

Training Options For Organizations


If you are a Human Resource or Training Manager

Organizations have different delivery options.  For groups this includes: on-line, blended or even live training (we bring the instructor to you). Either on an individual class or as a cohort basis. 

One can also choose whether you want the coaching necessary to develop skills or would rather focus on skills. 

Rather than develop a class (an expensive proposition), you can

• License one or more in a series, and 

• Use the courseware with your own trainers or ours.


You might say, expertise requires memorization; skill development requires practice; and mastery requires real effort. But whatever level of learning you want, we follow a process (see below). Discover how the classes (and the modules within them) are organized.

The Full Class Format

Full classes presents content weekly like taking a regular university class. Therefore, it's perfect for those want to focus on expertise within a certain time frame — typically four or six-weeks. Full classes run on a cycle of one-module a week. Beside articles, videos and assessments; each class includes exercises (often in the form of forums and discussions)  and assignments designed with application ins mind (See sample module)
