Leadership Master Class
During this class we’ll focus on two main subjects. We’ll cover some fundamentals of leading people well, and we’ll talk about how to create an environment that generates good leadership. The first part -- the fundamentals -- will deliver some concrete practices and information that will help leaders improve immediately. But we can’t possibly cover all of the necessary information in one class. That’s why we have part two -- how to make sure your company is able to continue the process of improving itself.
This talk is for those who want to improve their personal level of leadership, and for those who want to see their company continue to get better at solving problems and retaining engaged employees.
1) Explanation of culture and values; How to have effective one-on-one meetings; Decision making methods; How to handle conflict, 2) Continuous improvement; Deliberate practice; Setting expectations
