Developing High-Performance Leaders
About the Program
Leaders are paid to get results through others. But how can a leader ensure that his or her direct reports are willing and able to give their best? Faced with greater-than-ever workplace diversity—age, gender, race, values, and much more—today’s successful leaders have learned to adjust their behavior to elicit the best performance from everyone around them. They are “player centered,” zeroing in on each member of their team to determine which leadership behavior works best, with which individuals, and varying their interactions accordingly. This program presents an in-depth discussion of the four basic leadership behaviors: prescribing/directing, coaching/instructing, collaborating/partnering, and inspiring/empowering.
Participants will assess their leadership behavior, identifying which behavior comes most naturally to them and probing the reasons why that choice may not be optimal in every situation. They will learn how to use the “Leader/Player Wheel”: a dynamic model that enables leaders to effectively diagnose the needs of their players and then adjust their leadership behavior accordingly.
