Learning Objective
Prepare high-potential, emerging leaders in any business setting to make a bigger impact sooner by increasing their awareness of their strengths and blind spots.

Workshop Triggers
  •   Nervous about the retirement and succession plans of your senior leaders and the gaps they are going to create for your staff, customers/clients and service delivery, as well as the impact they’ll have on your ability to develop and close leads?
  • Losing sleep over the number of baby boomers you have in senior leadership and how you haven’t started to identify or groom their replacements?
  • Feeling an urgent need to step up the development of your future leaders?
  • Dissatisfied with your organization’s bench strength and leadership pipeline?
  • Surprised that some of your high-potential employees left you for other opportunities because you weren’t preparing them fast enough for leadership roles?
  • Anxious that your high-potential employees are not ready for broader, more demanding roles?

Workshop Deliverables
Through participation in this workshop, you will gain:

  • Awareness of the nine behaviors that can derail a leader’s career, including not respecting an organization’s culture, attempting to do too much yourself and sticking with an under-performer too long;
  •  Understanding of the eight elements that directly correlate with superior organization performance;
  • Insights from self-assessments of leadership, delegation skills, listening skills and comfort level with the status quo;
  • A “Red Flag” report that highlights the career derailers each participant needs to be alert to based on their leadership self-assessment;
  • Tools you can can apply immediately upon returning to the office, including:
    •   Six key questions to ask to increase understanding and alignment
    •  Model to decide what, when, how and to whom to delegate
    • Three models for evaluating and retaining a high-performing team; and
  • At least one new trusted relationship, as each participant is paired with an “accountability buddy” for the entire workshop.
