Course Description

Were you promoted into a leadership position because you were good at your job?

Many people are promoted into leadership positions without leadership skill sets, yet now they are expected to motivate, direct, build a team, deal with conflicts, and handle performance issues.

Where did you learn how to do all of that? The best workers may be lousy leaders. The “You do a great job, we are going to promote you” approach can have disastrous results.

The best salesperson may be a bad sales manager. The best trial attorney may damage morale when promoted to lead the department. The most skilled technician may struggle to correct performance problems and develop people when they move to a leadership position.

Effective leadership requires a different skill set. There is a difference between being a boss and a leader.

Anyone can boss and tell people what to do but leading requires a different approach. Bosses tell and dictate – Leaders coach and council!

This class provides a step-by-step process to coach effectively and counsel employees – when they are performing well and when they are not. It gives you the skills needed to be a leader instead of just a boss.

These essential leadership skills show you how to use positive confrontation and develop commitment rather than simply compliance from others.

Why you should attend

Business school, law school, medical school, technical school, and other places of learning typically do not teach the day-to-day process of managing people and leading a team.

You may learn how to make business plans, read and interpret spreadsheets, develop strategy, understand economics and marketing, gain technical know-how, and other vital aspects of your job and profession. But without an effective leadership skill set, you will not be as successful as you can in your career.

On-the-job training and copying the ghost of supervisors past rarely teach the essentials of effective leadership.

There are 3 skill-sets needed for success:

  1. Technical Skills – the ability to do your job proficiently.
  2. Organizational skills – the ability to get things done.
  3. People skills – the ability to connect, motivate, persuade and inspire others.

All three are essential. Typically you have invested more time on technical and organizational skills yet have little time invested in developing people skills.

People skills separate the “bosses” from the “leaders.

In this interactive webinar, Ben Adkins, a conflict management and leadership training coach, teaches the people skill set effective leaders use to have high-performing teams. After attending, you will know what to do in situations that arise in the day-to-day process of supervising, managing, team leading, and getting the job done with others.

Once you learn these core leadership skills, you are confident in knowing what to do based on circumstances and desired outcomes.
