About the Course
Congratulations! You have just been promoted. With every level you move up, from individual contributor to leading multiple teams as a program manager, your impact and influence on the organization grows significantly. Making the leap up the management chain requires you to develop more advanced managerial, leadership, and organizational skills, while using your current toolbox in different ways.
This one-day interactive, hands-on workshop will enable you to:
- Recognize the different roles and expectations for team, project, program, and executive leaders.
- Navigate organizational complexity to maximize your team’s results
- Apply Strength-Based Leadership principles to create, inspire, and lead high-performing project teams
Leaders from all organizational levels, if you’re interested in preparing for more demanding positions, this workshop is for you.
Topics to be covered include:
- Leadership and Management: What are the different roles and expectations for leaders at different levels of the organization? What leadership skills do I need to develop to succeed at the next level of leadership? How can I impact retention and engagement at my level of leadership?
- Organizational Dynamics: How do I navigate the complexities of organizational structure and culture to get things done in my organization? How do I handle higher-level decisions with which I do not agree or which may compromise my ethical principles? How do I communicate effectively both up and down the management chain?
- Creating and Leading High-performing Teams: How do I establish an effective project team, encouraging engagement and innovative thinking? How do I address team dysfunctions? How do I manage virtual, dispersed project teams?
