Aspiring Leader

Two, 3.0 Hour Segments, Online / Virtual

Are you interested in learning more about the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to lead in today’s workplace?

Today’s leaders are more than just supervisors or management team members. They are the heart of inspiration, teamwork, and create the atmosphere required for the pursuit of common goals.

Aspiring Leader seminar dennis gilbert

This seminar covers many of the foundation skills that build great leadership habits. Participants will explore what it means to be a leader, not just a supervisor or manager. We’ll be covering change, communication, and motivating the team. Tough topics that are sometimes taken for granted such as resiliency, understanding priorities, and the difference between facts and opinions. In addition, we’ll examine some tough questions such as, “Where are you most vulnerable?” and “What is most important right now?” 

Attending this seminar will give you:

  • New perspectives on leading in today’s economic climate
  • A mission-centric perspective that inspires purpose-driven teams
  • Tactics that create trusted, low-head count, high-output cross-functional teams
  • Communication guidelines that increase confidence and boost employee loyalty
  • Motivation strategies that build high-performance without focusing on pay
  • The confidence and resiliency to lead even during unpopular but still required change efforts
  • And so much more…

Appropriate for: 

This dynamic two-segment virtual on-line (via Zoom) program is appropriate for everyone wanting to build better leadership skills. Those who benefit the most are persons moving into supervisory roles, those who have been in supervisory roles for some time but have never participated in formal training, or for any supervisor, manager, or workplace leader who wants to refresh on the foundation skills required to effectively lead teams. 

In the past, everyone from project managers, emerging supervisors and managers, and even small business CEO’s have been delighted with this seminar!
