The Leadership of One

It is happening now and all around you.

New leaders are emerging.
Will you become a 21st century leader?

The Leadership of One is a professional development program that develops excellent managers into insightful leaders.

Bring this cutting edge program to your aspiring leaders and up the ladder to the executive management team. Participants will become the leader people CHOOSE to follow,
not the manager they HAVE to follow because
of their position on the organizational chart.

The next coaching and mentoring session will start in January 2018.

Last session was Sept 2017.

The 21st Century Leadership Coaching Program: The Leadership of One

Personal Benefits of The Leadership of One:  This professional development program, a companion program to the Earn the Gift of Discretionary Effort on-site program, has as its  focus becoming a leader with increased impact and influence. It helps you develop discretionary effort inside of yourself, enabling you to model it for your employees.

This is one of the questions asked in the program, “Is your team ‘schoaling’ or swimming in synchronicity?” You will learn what a school of fish can teach you about the leadership of one.

The Leadership of One guides you through management minefields to leadership success as you learn the strategies, techniques and principles of 21st century leadership.

Being a leader of 4-generations in the workplace involves thinking differently as you seek to:

  • Earn the respect of all employees
  • Keep employees engaged in meaningful work
  • Take advantage of different perspectives
  • Create learning between generations
  • Facilitate collaboration
  • Help employees grow professionally and personally
  • Minimize the departure of valued employees by supporting them in their aspirations
  • Empower your employees to bring their A-game to work every day

Creating a culture change that includes the implementation of the points above is leveraging discretionary effort of all employees.

Leaders, who invest in developing their organization’s discretionary effort, create a workplace where individuals will want to work and where they give discretionary effort on a daily basis.

When discretionary effort is freely offered by employees, they become your organization’s greatest competitive advantage.

Week Two: Unlock the Future by Discovering Hidden Gifts

Dr. Ben Carson said, “I think one of the keys to leadership is recognizing that everybody has gifts and talents. A good leader will learn how to harness those gifts toward the same goal.” Every human being possesses unbelievable personal gifts.

This instruction explores the power of your personal gifts and how to:

  • “Unwrap” or use them for to increase career success and become the company’s competitive advantage
  • Discover and utilize your employees’ gifts.
  • Accept employees “As Is” and then help them grow

*Included: TTI Trimetrix Behaviors, Motivators and DNA assessment and debrief

PLUS – Developing Leadership of One Abilities Praxis Statement: I have everything I need.

Week Three: The Power of Integrity and The Magic of Gratitude

Integrity and authenticity are “felt” by others, meaning that as others enter into dialog with you, they can tell whether you are being honest and authentic with them. Their loyalty and trust goes deeper as you model gratitude and thank them for their contributions.

The multiplier effect of gratitude is shown in these words by a young woman we coached: “I live for those words, ‘fabulous job’ and when I get them, I double down and work even harder to get the next, ‘fantastic work.'”

This instruction includes how to:

  • Demonstrate integrity and authenticity
  • Use gratitude to cement positive work habits
  • Create an culture where the truth is surfaced

PLUS – Developing Leadership of One Abilities Praxis Statement: Do the right thing and the next right thing.

Week Four:  Human Dignity and Personal Charisma

Few leaders understand the impact of recognizing an individual’s human dignity. When human dignity is extended at every encounter with an employee, self-respect and self-esteem increases.

    The final segment of learning and discovery to be the leaders people choose to follow is increasing your personal charisma. The charisma you exhibit is built on your personality strengths, integrity, and authenticity. It is evident in the enhancement of professional relationships as you model gratitude and social acceptance.

    This webinar covers how to:

    • Extend respect and human dignity to every worker
    • Be true to one’s own personality, spirit, and character
    • Increase your personal charisma
    • Earn authentic contribution and discretionary effort

    PLUS – Developing Leadership of One Abilities Praxis Statement: Accept the gifts.
