Human-Centric Leading Course
This popular course consistently earn rave reviews regardless of the ways we shake it up. It speaks to leaders across generations, genders and cultures and provides the first step in leading in a fundamentally new way that is universally applicable and effective across contexts.
The program is designed as a set of workshops to facilitate the immediate use of new paradigms and skills for quick learning. It starts with a view toward leading across cultures and contexts, inviting leaders to step into a new level of adaptability and ease with ambiguity within a globalized economy. It then moves into an inner view through which leaders in-source the responsibility of their thoughts, feelings and actions, learning how this boosts their confidence levels and their ability to affect positive change. The program continues with ways to lead others, exploring the common team symptoms as miscommunication, conflict, low engagement and creativity rates, coming out the other end with strategies that curate co-creative teams that nurture peoples’ natural motivation and need to grow and contribute. The program closes with the exploration of ways in which existing organizational cultures affect leadership productivity and strategies for navigating various workplace complexities.
The program uses the world’s only activities-based leadership assessment that opens up a dialogue around the participant’s existing challenges that block their highest effectiveness. An example of the assessment report can be found here, which is complimented by an in-depth debrief that explores the leader’s specific skills, challenges, motivations, team-orientation and willingness to take necessary productive action. A grid can be prepared for a team, as well, which outlines any agreement or disagreement around the activities needed to complete a specific project. The assessment is used as a diagnostic tool and a way to chart progress over time.
