Dare to Lead: From Manager to Leader
Develop Self resilience, Enhance Team Motivation and cultivate positive Work culture
What we can do to be better Leaders
Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas and has the courage to develop that potential. As we lead, we need to learn to deal with different team members’ styles and aspiration. As leaders, we don’t have all the right answers and at times lack the skills of an appropriate communication style on when to motivate, lead and manage team members. It is imperative that managers are equipped with the essential skills to handle different groups of people to improve work relationships in teams.
Upon completion of this workshop, you will be able to;
- Increase Personal Awareness as a Leader and Manager
- Develop leadership styles according to the situation
- Tips on how to develop Empathy, connection, and courage to lead in uncertain times
- Confidently handle and lessen grievances and complaints in a systematic and calm fashion
