Are you getting in the way of your own success? In this in-person course you will learn to recognize and remove your self-imposed limitations. Set clear and motivating goals to guide your future growth and create your personal path to success.
- Utilize dynamic action-learning approaches to build the mindset and the skillset of self-leadership in a stress-free and energized environment. Learn and practice the art of self-leadership, drawing on proven models including:
- Situational Leadership® II—learn the world’s most popular leadership model, taught from the perspective of the self-leader rather than the manager
- Assumed Constraints—learn to recognize those perceived barriers that can be transcended or avoided.
Accelerate your skills to self-lead through the three skills of a self-leader. This session will show you how being aligned with the manager on goal setting, diagnosing, and getting a matching leadership style response can help to achieve goals via the following key concepts:
- Points of Power—learn the five sources of power at work and how each can be activated to help achieve goals and experience greater autonomy and competence.
- Proactive Conversations—learn how to seek the direction and support they need; learn how to proactively conduct One-on-One Conversations with their manager, in which they prepare the agenda.
The first component of a Self-Leadership mindset is challenging the assumed constraints that limit willingness to seek new experiences. For example, if you assume that no one will listen to your idea because you tried once and were rejected, then you seriously limit your ability to effect positive change.
The second component is the ability to activate points of power. Too often, we assume that because we don’t have positions of power, we cannot be leaders or influence outcomes. But we can tap into other points of power such as task, personal, relationship, and knowledge power, which dramatically improve performance and our sense of well-being.
The third component is the ability to be proactive. Self-leaders don’t wait to be told what to do—they hold themselves accountable for getting what they need to succeed. They think for themselves and make suggestions. Self-leaders conduct proactive conversations to solicit feedback and ask for direction and support.
