Leading the Leadership Team
Every person on your leadership team needs to model the attitudes and behaviors that you are expecting of others in your organization, be cohesive in their leadership approach and be held accountable by each other and by you. Leadership teams are quick to identify leadership/performance gaps in other areas of the organization but may need more leadership from you when taking a hard look at themselves. The investment the team makes pays dividends (improved trust, communication, collaboration, efficiency, resource management, recruitment, retention and more) across the board. In this interactive session, we will guide you through our process for assessing your leadership team and fine-tuning your leadership approach for guiding and growing this level of leaders within your organization.
