5-part Leadership series by Gary Walljasper, fueled by The Carlson Group

Find out what you bring to the table (or the boardroom) and explore universal principles of leadership and communication.  Leadership is more about personal characteristics and behavior than technical capability (even though know-how is a big part of being a leader)—it’s illustrated through an action more than a job title. Throughout the series, participants will trade stories and advice/coaching tips, and it’s a great way to connect with like-minded leaders in your organization and your community.

Part I: Leading from Self Awareness

Understanding yourself and your team is essential for any leader—what do they respond to, how are you different, and how can you adapt to give your staff what they need?

Part II: Coaching In Relationships

Make conversations meaningful, whether you’re delivering feedback, trying to help, or just checking in. Several opportunities for skill practice and knowledge application during class to make it “stick.”

Part III: Driving Performance

What motivates your staff? How can you help them maintain momentum? Look at models to drive performance and find out critical words and actions your team needs from you.

Part IV: Delegating Effectively

Use the Model for Effective Delegation to make your team members feel empowered and engaged, instead of overwhelmed or micromanaged.

Part V: Developing People

Get the best from your team—how can you grow them and their skills? Learn key moments in the Performance Management cycle and how you can leverage them to raise the bar for your team.
