Have you ever struggled with leading your team to generate the results you want?  Leaders often struggle with knowing what results they want to produce, but not knowing how to get their team on board, especially if what they know to do hasn’t worked in the past.  Does it ever feel like your only options are to beg your team or to bulldoze them?  Neither is effective.

In this course, we identify two different styles of leadership- creative and reactive and discover where you spend most of your time.  We dive deeper to understand what is driving our leadership behavior and our human desire to be liked, and learn ways to practice powerful leadership and team building.  Finally, we cover the tools and techniques for having more successful one-on-one meetings with their team. 

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and recognize reactive and creative leadership styles
  • Discover what is driving our leadership behavior and our desire to be liked.
  • Discover techniques for practicing powerful leadership while building and maintaining relationships.
  • Explore new tools for having successful one-on-one meetings with your team.

This course was a wonderful balance of theory and concrete action items. It was very helpful to understand the why behind the reactive leadership style and some practical ways we can move more toward creative leadership.

Thank you, the course is an eye opener. I think its a course for all people who are in leadership big and small teams. I was shocked to learn i have been a reactive kind of leader and some of the things which look obvious have not been that obvious. Like when i, as i leader focus on myself and not the team. When i have strugled to give feedback for fear of not being liked only to give it when am angry at them.

I found this presentation to be insightful as well as informative. I appreciated the presenters approach to the subject. She was able to present the information with a personal approach. She provided realistic tools for success instead of buzz words and trite "solutions".

Really liked discussion around the two types of leadership and the characteristics of each. Good guidance from presenter in terms of focusing on one of two qualities to improve over the next 6 months. Overall a very practical session that anyone can benefit from.

This course gives some thoughtful insight to your personal approach to build a positive team approach to work. This is a good course for beginners or for leaders that are having a difficult time building trust from colleagues and direct reports.

This course included some great information for both new and seasoned leaders. Many of us forget some of the fundamentals of leadership, this course is great for anyone leading/managing a team, irrespective of seniority.

She showed how absolute power and being a doormat are more alike than similar, which makes it easier to understand the weaknesses of those leadership styles and what causes them. Defining that was critical.

I liked the idea that the 2 extremes of leadership were actually fairly similar in terms of what causes each: namely fear.

Good refresher with relevant content. Highlighting fear/insecurity as a driver for reactive leadership was quite salient.
