Course Description

Circular logo with leadership development that delivers results in the center and the outer ring divided into five even sections labeled Achieve Results Through Others, Manage Performance, Engage Employees, Execute Strategy and Increase Productivity, and Communicate Effectively

Individual differences are key to the success of any organization.  Yet these vital differences can also lead to common workplace issues—stress, conflict, low productivity, and resistance to change.  So how do you solve common problems among unique individuals?  You begin with self-awareness.  Self-awareness is a key component of effective management.

Foundation for Effective Leadership helps participants identify their strengths by focusing on the behaviors that “come naturally” to them.  When leaders operate from their strengths and are aware of their weaknesses, they can more effectively coach, delegate, and correct performance problems.
