As leaders, it’s imperative that we are self-aware. And yet research finds that nearly 90% of us…aren’t. Often, we are letting subconscious stories, instincts and biases drive us towards decisions that hinder our performance. We must find new ways to understand our fears, strengths, shortcomings and all of the ways that our brains keep sabotaging us from being the most effective leaders we can be. Fear(less) Leadership provides immediately applicable strategies to intervene with our self-limiting instincts.
In this session you will:
- Understand what a “People Pleasing” mindset is and how to identify personal habits and feelings that reinforce this belief.
- Learn tactical boundaries for saying no, sharing a conflicting point of view and asserting oneself when being taken advantage of.
- Walk away with a 7-day action plan for applying a cure for the Disease to Please to strengthen and fine tune assertion techniques
As a leader, how you will manage your team going forward is going to look very different than it does today. Remote work, which is complicated, is here and likely to stay. Leadership is harder from a distance. The “return to normal” will not be to the “old normal” we were familiar with. This can be your opportunity to flourish by reinventing how you lead. During this interactive breakout, you will learn how to motivate your team successfully in this virtual world by:
- Showing them you care
- Setting clear agreements around expected results
- Delegating in a way they feel empowered to take action
- Providing good coaching support—instead of micromanaging
- Recognizing them for their contributions
- Giving feedback in a way they will appreciate
