Enabling Your People to Succeed

Leadership, as Dwight Eisenhower once said, is the ability to get people to do what they don’t want to do and like it. That quote addresses two aspects of the power that a leader exercises. One is asking people to do something. The second is motivating people to achieve.

At its core leadership is simple: moving others toward a goal. However leadership is difficult: creating an environment that enables people to succeed.

This webcast will focus on those traits a leader can utilize to bring his/her people toward purpose that unites in common cause.

Among the traits we will explore are:

  • Demonstrating character
  • Projecting authority
  • Communicating through listening/learning
  • Influencing through others
  • Making tough decisions
  • Showing humility
  • Exhibiting humor
  • Motivating from within
  • Leading: be seen, be heard, be there
