We all hold our personal beliefs about what makes a leader effective. These often-implicit beliefs are developed through early experiences with leaders in our lives, like our parents, coaches, teachers, and supervisors. Those beliefs may or may not align with effective leadership and, if not, may be harming our ability to effectively lead. Research on leadership has been accumulating over the past 100 years and organizational scholars have identified through evidence which leadership behaviors drive team and organizational outcomes. The purpose of this workshop is to reconceptualize effective leadership based on the evidence. Through an online self-assessment and feedback report, lecture, and facilitated and group discussion, attendees will learn about the LeAD 6PLeadership Framework. Having terminology and a common understanding of effective leadership can help us identify our strengths as a leader and areas we would like to supplement. Effective leadership behaviors discussed include establishing well-defined roles, processes, and channels of communication (Pathways), behaviors that foster strong connections with team members and create positive contexts for the work being done (People & Place), gathering and applying information to make effective and balanced decisions (Problem-solving), and using inspirational, relational, and rational influence strategies to gain commitment to goals (Positive Persuasion). We will pay special attention to Passion & Purpose and Pursuit. Passion & Purpose answers the question, “Why do I lead?” Having a clear Passion & Purpose can provide meaning, help shape who we are as a leader, and be especially energizing. Finally, the Pursuit dimension concerns our intention in pursuing ongoing development as a leader. Rather than being a weathervane blowing in the wind, we can purposefully engage identifying the experiences unique to our developmental needs, approach those experiences with openness to learning, deeply engage in the experience, and take moments to individually or collaborative reflect on key takeaways. Through Pursuit, we can take the wheel and drive our leader development in the direction we desire.
This training will cover topics related to conflict management. Specifically, participants in the training will learn what conflict is, why it matters, and what causes conflict, while building their own self-awareness about their conflict triggers and how they operate in conflict. Brief self-reflection will be embedded into the workshop and additional resources will be offered to participants at its conclusion. After learning about conflict management in an interactive webinar, workshop participants will engage in a simulated role-playing activity allowing them to practice the skills they have learned and debrief their experiences. This debrief will be facilitated by LeAD certified coaches, who will support participants as they gain self-awareness and identify areas for further development.

Learn what it really takes to become an amazing leader in a workshop series focusing on effective leadership and leader development. The workshop series begins with an introductory workshop on 6PLeadership and leader development. Then, each subsequent workshop focuses on one aspect of the 6PLeadership framework including Positive Persuasion, People & Place, Problem-Solving, Pathways, Passion & Purpose, and Pursuit. All or a select number of workshops are provided based on client needs.
Having completed the Leadership version of Gallup’s StrengthsFinder, we will work with a group of leaders to identify their strengths and learn other group members’ strengths. This will aid in providing a common language of strengths and knowledge of how to best form leadership teams among the group. Suggestions will be developed for how to integrate strengths into daily work.
Based on research in persuasion, influence, and gender stereotypes, the Positive Persuasion for Women workshop will inform women about second generation gender bias, the unique challenges women in leadership face, proven influence strategies, and more.
Participating leaders will build networks and community, share their experiences with persuasion and influence, learn from their peers, practice influence tactics in a safe environment, receive feedback on their preferred influence tactics, and more. Additionally, this session will debunk myths about persuasion that cause many women to avoid the use of persuasion altogether. Women will leave this session with practical skills and strategies to launch them into the next echelon of influence in their professional lives.
