The focus of any organization’s approach to leadership development has an amazing influence over what’s expected of leaders. From what is built to when they are introduced as leaders to how development solutions are accessed, they each contribute to the culture of leadership. A key factor in a leader’s success is self-awareness – defined as slowing oneself down to speed oneself up. In this fast-paced, ever-changing marketplace we work in, developing self-awareness with intentional focus is what drives performance, inclusiveness, and growth.
This interactive, two-part series will center on how proactively designing more self-awareness moments can raise expectations for leaders to drive the employee experience. Together, we’ll use the key learnings from, The Self-Aware Leader, to create practice best practices you can quickly implement in your work with immediate return. Part One focuses on understanding the key elements of the model in The Self-Aware Leader and Part Two is about the practical application in leadership development work.
This learning experience is designed for anyone who works in HR, training, OD, culture, or people development and is very much focused on establishing a healthy leadership culture that balances what’s good for the individuals, the team, and the organization. All levels of professional experience are welcome.
Participants who attend the first session will receive a copy of the Self-Aware Leader.
