Mastering the Opposing Forces of Leadership
The modern business environment is defined by dizzying change and ambiguity. To navigate this complexity, today’s managers must be versatile—able to change course and adapt on the fly. Versatility requires a wide repertoire of skills and a mastery of opposing forces: being hands-on and driving performance, yet empowering and engaging people; setting direction with a strategic vision, yet managing the tactical details of execution. Working from a practical model of the tensions and trade-offs that make leadership a balancing act, Rob will guide you through personal learning and self-development based on peer dialogue and reflection. Participants learn how to articulate their basic beliefs and assumptions about leadership, explore their mindsets and attitudes, and see how their beliefs, assumptions, mindsets and attitudes show up in how they lead. Plus, they come away with a clear understanding of where they have struck a good balance in their leadership style and how they could adjust to achieve a better balance, increase their versatility and become more effective.
