Who Should Attend:

Individual contributors and team members seeking to be more productive and satisfied at work, and potential leaders who do not currently have direct reports. Anyone who reports to managers trained in Situational Leadership II.

Course Overview:

Healthy, productive, and growing relationships have one thing in common – they are all built on a solid foundation of trust. High levels of trust in personal, team, and organizational relationships allow creativity, productivity, efficiency, and effective communication to flourish. Low levels of trust have the direct economic impact of high turnover, absenteeism, low morale, stifled innovation, challenged decisions, inefficiency, and often damaged customer relationships. Organizations need a common language and approach that allows for the development of a culture built on trust.

The ABCD Trust model provides a common language for individuals and organizations to improve the level of trust in relationships. It allows everyone to have a common understanding of the concept of trust and equips them with the skills to create, develop, and sustain trusting relationships.

Key concepts:

  • Educate and empower leaders to understand the impacts of trust within the workplace
  • Use a common language to create, enhance, and sustain trusting relationships
  • Increase productivity, creativity, commitment, and initiative
  • Reduce workplace negativity and improve employee morale
  • Improve customer service and retention

On day two we will transition to self leadership. In this session you will learn about how to be part of an empowered workforce that results in accelerated development, higher performance, personal accountability, and increased motivation. The session is about you reaching your full potential and being a part of a workforce of self-leaders to power the organization. It is designed to ensure that you know how to develop the self-starting mindset you need to be more productive and also move the organization forward.

Key concepts:

  • 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
  • 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 you need, and learn how to proactively conduct one-on-one conversations with your manager
