Course Description:

Leadership is an art, not a science. If leadership were a science, we would be able to educate, test, and certify leaders with precision. Just because leadership is an art, it does not mean we can't research it, study it, find repeatable patterns and be able to improve our leadership abilities. Many science or technically oriented professionals take leadership positions without any leadership experience or training. Like all human beings, these professionals often times utilize their strengths and what has helped them succeed in the past. They sometimes even overuse their strengths. For example some people are good at paying attention to the details. As a manager this preference or skill is highly valued. As a leader, this close attention to detail can be seen as micro managing. In today's rapidly changing world, organizational leaders must be good at both leading and managing. Many people with technical backgrounds tend to be good at managing, but not so good at leading. This trend is typically due to these individuals overusing their strong technical backgrounds and technical skills that have always helped them to succeed.

One of the main intentions of this workshop is to help the participants understand the difference between leading and managing so they can balance their abilities in both arenas. Wayne Dyer, Ph.D., once said, "While many people believe that talent, opportunity, IQ and a positive outlook are the barometers for determining one's potential for success and happiness. These factors are secondary to possessing a healthy, positive self-image. Once you have developed a strong self portrait, the opinion of others will not immobilize you or cause you to doubt yourself." We believe we can help leaders tap their full potential by first helping them understand and create a strong self-portrait of who they are. This requires that each individual understands many of their various styles and preferences in order to develop this strong self-portrait.

Once a person understands his/her own styles and how his/her styles are similar and different to other people, then the strong foundation exists for each person to:

Understand others' styles and preferences;

Utilize his/her own style more effectively; Understand and value differences and similarities;

Have a better understanding of how to build and maintain rapport with people;

Understand better how to relate and communicate with people, especially those with a different style than his/her own.

The skill sets of leading and managing are different. Rarely do people get the opportunity to learn skills to create willing followers. Rarely do people learn skills to help them build and maintain rapport. You can use your technical skills to manage equipment and systems, but many people do not want to be managed, they want to be led. Attend this workshop to understand the difference.
