Why Leadership 101?
Does any of the following resonate with you?
Build self-confidence and wisdom. Leadership 101 helps reinforce and teach you essential skills and techniques you need to look at challenges from a different perspective. Doing so can add clarity to a difficult situation, and also promote wisdom, and facilitate self-confidence.
Empower you to succeed. If you think great leaders are born and not made, think again. We use various techniques and examples to emphasize the point that with a little extra effort, we all have it in us to be great leaders.
Learn valuable skills. Leadership 101 reinforces the skills needed to lead effectively, including skills like persuasion and how to influence people — even those over whom you have little direct authority.
Encourage introspection. You’ll have the opportunity to get to know yourself a little better from the feedback offered by fellow members.
Surround yourself with other leaders. Leadership 101 allows you to study how leadership ideas have emerged and changed over time, helping you make sense of the often conflicting ideas about leadership that cause so much confusion. You’ll also get the opportunity to network with other leaders and draw on their experiences.
Help lead you to the next level. The next level is about progress, and one way to achieve that progress is to add to your skill set at Leadership 101.
Help you clarify your vision. Successful leaders have a clear, sound vision of where they want to go. Leadership 101 gives you the chance to step back from your responsibilities, examine your organization, and think about how the future may unfold every month. You’ll learn how to communicate your vision in a way that truly motivates the people around you.
Learn how to influence people. In Leadership 101, we uncover the elements of motivation. We also work to discriminate between good and bad sources of power & strong and weak methods of influence.
Learn how to build a team. You’ll gain insights on how to pick a good team, how to build a team capable of delivering your vision, and how to give orders without coming off as either too weak or too overbearing.
Learn from our mistakes. Our learn-by-doing approach gives you a glimpse at the worst mistakes you can make as a leader. It also teaches you how to help map out a plan for avoiding the traps and pitfalls that can end your leadership career.
