Session One

Effective Interpersonal Communication Skills
Critical Skills for Effective Leadership

Organizations today are complex and often highly dispersed. Teams comprised of employees and contractors are the norm and everyone relies on technology to stay connected. Communicating in this environment is extremely difficult. Yet the professional who can do it effectively has an instant edge.

Session Two

Strategic Planning/Strategic Direction
Achieving High Impact Results

If you want to achieve dynamic results in a fast-paced business environment, you need a plan. Effective strategic planning helps you create a logical, deliberate operating path for your team. It also gives you a better framework
for budgeting, resource allocation, and team accountability. Plus it helps you set-up meaningful milestones to demonstrate progress to your boss.

Session Three

Metrics and Big Data
Tools to Support Critical Business Decisions

There is a lot of talk about “big data” today. Metrics are everywhere as more and more information is captured
online. Developing the ability to evaluate data and discern which metrics are meaningful to support sound planning and leadership decisions is tricky because of the sheer volume of information available. It’s very easy
to focus on the quantity rather than the quality.

Session Four

How to Develop Political Savvy
Advance Your Career, Advocate Effectively for Your Team

Every organization has politics. Recognizing the political “rules” and acquiring the skill to exert influence within your organization helps you secure and maintain critical resources for your team. It also helps you advance your career and the careers of your most talented people. Since most of these rules are unwritten, it takes time/skill to uncover them and use them effectively.

Session Five

Motivational Leadership
How to Engage Your Employees

Employee engagement is the lowest it’s been in years. Teams are required to do more with less and many companies are using temporary workers to fill the gaps. Creating team cohesion and providing motivational leadership in these situations takes real skill.
