Leaders are constantly challenged with the daunting task of managing ongoing change and transition. Not only do they need to cope with the structural side (creating a vision, reorganizing, and restructuring), but they are also on the frontlines of the people part of change (grieving, letting go, building hope, and learning). The Leading Through Transitions Participant Workbook provides leaders with the important information and the tools needed to develop the key leadership skills that are so critical while facing unrelenting change.
As a participant in a dynamic one-day workshop leaders will be introduced to Authentic Leadership Paradox Wheel, and will learn what it takes to balance the dynamic tension between six pairs of seemingly paradoxical leadership attributes:
Being tough while simultaneously expressing appropriate empathy
Catalyzing change while understanding transition
Expressing a sense of urgency while retaining the capacity for realistic patience
Being self-reliant yet trusting others
Radiating both optimism and realism
Capitalizing on strengths while fostering the capacity to go against the grain
Leading Through Transitions Participant Workbook will give leaders the confidence to more clearly assess their impact and learn how to meet the demands of both managing the business and leading their people.
