Leadership at All Levels

What is my leadership potential?
How can I develop and apply that potential in ways that benefit my organization?

Leadership at All Levels, a four-module leadership development series, will help you answer these questions, regardless of your position on the organizational chart. The program operates from the assumption that leaders are made, not born, and that anyone is capable of increasing their value with their colleagues, teams and organizations. It is recommended, but not required, that participants begin with Module 1.

By the end of the program, you will be able to:

• Identify your leadership strengths and areas needing improvement
• Adjust your communication styles in different situations
• Lead groups comprised of differing generational values and work styles
• Coach others to help them enhance their performance
• Resolve conflicts using a variety of approaches
• Turn a group of people into a team pulling in the same direction
• Use multiple thinking perspectives when making decisions
• Conduct meetings that are focused, efficient and productive
• Set clear directions for your department and achievable goals for reaching them
• Manage change proactively
