Starting your Leadership Journey (2020)

Back to Package

You’re a new leader—now what?!  The first several years in a leadership position have the ability to set the stage for your success in this role.  Years of experience will help you further develop your leadership skills, but what about now, in the beginning?  This webinar will identify the skillset essential for a developing leader, as well as assist in formulating a plan for further leadership development, using the framework of my top ten tips:

-Moving from peer to supervisor
-Keeping the emotion out of it
-Communicate, communicate, communicate
-Sitting on the decision fence
-Having your staff’s back while still holding them accountable
-Watch out for your lizard brain
-Develop a growth mindset
-Allow yourself to be vulnerable
-Conflict can be your best friend
-Know when to fold ‘em

Participants will be able to:

-Identify leadership skills that are most crucial when beginning in a leadership role

-Respond to learning opportunities when they uniquely present themselves

-Experiment with different leadership approaches to problem solving 

-Formulate a leadership development plan best suited to individual needs
