Leadership Conversations™: Challenging High Potential Managers to Become Great Leaders
– Move from Monologue to Dialogue to Grow Your Leadership Influence
Leadership revolves around “Conversations”, ones that allow a Leader to interact, build relationships, deepen trust, and share information in intentional ways. It is through those conversations that we as a leader ultimately achieve results. To be effective, we know that those conversations require “Dialogue”; we need to exchange ideas between people.
However, not everyone of us feels comfortable in holding dialogue, do we? Conversation can be tricky. This is especially so in our Leadership context, when other responsibilities may be riding on the backs of those conversations too.
Yet without conversations, we as Leaders have little “Bandwidth”; we cannot organise our team, build bonds, manage conflicts, share direction, engage ideas, measure progress, take corrective action, and celebrate results, can we? Our own & the well-being of our team may be compromised. As a consequence, organisational productivity may suffer too.
We understand this because we see the benefits in becoming a more impactful Leader. We know we need to develop our ability to communicate with Others. We have to learn to listen, and listen well. We need to sensitively use questions to discover what’s on another person’s mind. And we recognise there are times, places, and ways, to hold those more difficult leadership conversations. We also know that modelling good conversation skills is good for team members too.
This Workshop therefore takes an emotionally intelligent approach to personal leadership. Our focus dives deep into the communications dialectic, to explore core interpersonal skills & behaviours that are relevant to help us become much more effective communicators.
Our approach builds on the belief that a leader is not just a passive actor, they are also an active coach. The more effective we become at demonstrating impactful techniques, the more we influence our team to grow & reciprocate.
Fantastic course leaders and fantastic content.
