Manager as Leader Series—A Leader Mindset: Own Your Role

July 25 — 26, 2022
Northwest Public Power Association

Who Should Attend:

Supervisors, managers, Leadership Skills Series graduates, or anyone on a career path to a management role.

Course Overview:

This workshop kicks off the Manager as Leader Series and is designed to help ignite, inspire, and nurture the leader mindset within you. This class must be taken before other classes in the series.

Leadership is a choice: Own the choice. Own the transition. Own the role. No skills, techniques, or methods will have lasting impact until you clarify who you are and why you intend to lead others at work. At the completion of this two-day workshop, you will have a clear definition of your role as a leader and a plan for growing your leadership success.

Course Objectives:

  • Gain clarity on why you desire to lead and how you intend to grow as a leader.
  • Create and articulate your vision, philosophy, and growth plan as a leader.
  • Write and share your leadership story.
  • Clearly describe your own values, strengths, and working style – using the DiSC profile as a tool to help you.
  • Effectively apply the SLII model to specific leadership situations facing you.
  • Accurately describe the business you are in and how you can best contribute to that business.
  • Effectively clarify work expectations for yourself and for those you lead.
