Effective Corporate Leadership

It looks like you’re interested in leadership and management topics! Here’s a brief overview of the topics covered on the first of five days of our Effective Corporate Leadership Training:

  1. Why It’s Critical That You Be A Good Follower Before Expecting Others To Follow You: This is about understanding the dynamics of a team from a follower’s perspective before stepping into a leadership role. It helps in empathizing with team members and leading effectively.
  2. “I Am Not My Job Title” And Other Perils Of Being A Leader: This topic covers the importance of not letting one’s job title define their identity or worth. It also discusses the potential pitfalls leaders can face, such as power abuse, lack of empathy, and disconnect from the team.
  3. Interpersonal Dynamics: This involves understanding and navigating the relationships and interactions between team members. It’s crucial for conflict resolution, team building, and effective communication.
  4. Effective Leaders versus Ineffective Leaders: This topic compares the traits, behaviors, and strategies of successful leaders with those of less successful ones. It can provide valuable insights for improving one’s leadership skills.
  5. The Difference Between A “Manager” And A “Leader”: While a manager focuses on tasks, processes, and performance metrics, a leader inspires, motivates, and cultivates a positive team culture.
  6. The Difference Between “Developing Policy” And “Execution Of Policy”: Developing policy involves setting guidelines and rules, while executing policy involves implementing these guidelines and ensuring they are followed.
  7. What It Takes To Move From Line Employee To Supervisor: This topic covers the skills, mindset shifts, and steps involved in transitioning from an individual contributor role to a supervisory role.
  8. Strategic Issues Facing Supervisors: This could include challenges like managing remote teams, dealing with underperformance, maintaining team morale, and navigating organizational changes.
