Free Webinar /// Better Together : How a Shared Leadership Model Supports Relationships and Results

Virtual Event
Wednesday, 09/17/2019 @ 10:00-11:00am EDT

Wanted: a leader who can take risks but keep expenses under budget; be emotionally supportive to colleagues but maintain professional boundaries; and come up with creative new ideas but stay true to the organizational vision.

Sound familiar? Over the past 40 years, organizations’ expectations for leaders have expanded dramatically. While the list of ideal leadership qualities continues to grow, very few organizations pause to examine whether it’s reasonable – or even possible – for one individual to bring such a breadth of skills to the job. To meet the demands of an increasingly complex business environment, HR leaders are left with a near-impossible task: develop super-human leaders who can do it all.

Show Full Event Details

The latest research illustrates just how complex leadership has become, and how few leaders possess the skills to single-handedly master both relationships and results. When organizations ask for leaders who can do it all, they all but ensure there will be leadership gaps, and they run the risk of burning out their top talent. The solution? Develop a culture of shared leadership.

In this presentation, attendees will:

  • Explore new research that proves just rarely leaders excel at both relationships and results
  • Learn how HR leaders play a key role in ending the harmful myth of the heroic, do-it-all leader
  • Discover how HR can support the establishment of a more collaborative, more effective model of leadership
  • See how a strategic shift toward a culture of shared leadership can help you retain top talent and yield better outcomes for your organization

Free Webinar /// Keeping Leaders on Track: Spotting the Signs of Derailment

Virtual Event
Wednesday, 10/23/2019 @ 10:00-11:00am EDT

When a once-promising leader starts to become ineffective in their role, the impact goes well beyond the leader themselves. A seriously ineffectual leader, left unchecked, can be toxic for a team, or even the organization as a whole. That’s why it’s so critical to be able to spot the signs of a leader at risk for derailment, so you can start coaching for course correction (or in extreme cases, make plans for an exit).

How can you spot the warning signs early, before productivity and morale start to suffer? A new leadership study reveals that derailing leaders have certain behavior patterns in common. *there are certain profiles*

Understanding these patterns can give coaches and organizations key insights to help identify leaders at risk.

In this webinar, we’ll identify some of these warning signs and provide science-backed strategies for increasing self-awareness and coaching leaders to get them back on course.
