Business Case for Participating
Due to their constant and often changing demands, managers play a bigger role in building a pipeline of thriving talent and achieving business results in your company than they may even realize.
It is increasingly important that you empower them to lead and influence others most effectively.
Both your emerging and senior managers of people. From recently promoted star performers through more seasoned managers who need updated tools to lead and manage themselves and others in the changing landscape of the workplace.
Tier I: Emerging Leaders
Being an effective manager takes work and different from an individual contributor. If you are new to the role with little or no training, you will discover there is a difference between being a great employee and managing great employees.
Tier II: Senior Leaders
As you gain traction in achieving results through the efforts of others, seasoned managers require new and updated skills and tools when balancing tactical with strategic, adapting to the constant changes, bridging different work styles and building your team.
IMPACT! helps managers of all levels focus on developing the leadership skills necessary to effectively manager and lead People, Problems, Strategy and Processes across major areas of Leadership Development:
- Moving from Doer to Leader: A Manager's Role and Responsibilities
- Thinking Strategically: Pivot from Tactical to Strategic
- Communicating and Influencing: Empower and Motivate Others
- Developing Interpersonal Skills: Be an Emotionally Intelligent Leader
Skills Training: Prioritizing, setting goals, assessing strengths and areas for growths
Each manager will begin IMPACT! privately coaching with Amy in determining three goals for the program (with manager's input), customizing 360-degree feedback questions, and taking assessments to highlight his or her strengths and areas for growth.
Participants with the input of their managers and Amy will develop a Personal Development Plan highlighting their Vision and Goals for the duration of the program.
1) 360-degree feedback survey (including collaborative questions)
2) MBTI Communication Style Report
From Doer to Leader: A Manger’s Role and Responsibilities
Skills Training: Creating Vision
We kickoff our training and group sessions in the areas of what managers today are facing as both challenges and opportunities in their roles, functions, and work responsibilities. What anchors us amidst the transitions? Vision and an awareness of our strengths and others we work with.
We will explore as a cohort how to solve problems, make decisions, and respond with agility in this fast-paced and changing workplace. We will also explore how we shift mindset and practices “From Doer to Leader.”
Thinking Strategically: Pivot from Tactical to Strategic
Skills Training: Thinking Strategically
In a single workday, managers pivot their roles and responsibilities between working for someone, being the boss, and working at the peer level with others to have more influence. How best to navigate short term focus (your day to day role) with the longer term (organizational strategy)?
Developing a strategic mindset requires seeing the big picture, seeing patterns in relationships and processes, and dealing with the uncertainties and trade-offs that are part of the complexities of organizations.
Too often due to the superficial nature of the role, managers get hung up in the weeds, details, and doing-ness of work. Thinking Strategically requires a different mindset and way of doing work. Gain impact by 1) seeing the big picture, 2) focusing on what matters at department level and level of the organization, 3) being future focused.
Communicating and Influencing: Empower and Motivate Others
Skills Training: Communicating, Influencing, Developing Others
Whether you are online or in-person, the ability to communicate effectively with others is more important than ever. Communication is a core leadership function, requiring the ability to think with clarity and express ideas and information to a multitude of audiences. Effective communication is also about listening, asking questions, and aligning words and actions.
Understand the people you work with and their communication style to build your influence and get things done. How well you read others, and how quickly you pivot to bridging styles, impacts your ability to influence most effectively.
We will compare your own style for Communicating using the MBTI Report with different styles in our cohort. You will learn that your way of thinking and acting is not the only way and others think and act quiet differently from your own style. Learn how to bridge the differences and empower and influence others through what motivates them in order to achieve the needed results.
Private Coaching with Amy on special area of concentration.
Be an Emotionally Intelligent Leader
Skills Training: Ability to manage yourself and others through EI (Emotional Intelligence)
Transitioning to a leader of people is a challenge. As you continue your leadership journey, what you do and how you accomplish things during this part of the trip will be the experience that propels you further down the leadership road. And it all starts and ends with You. For example, how well you know your strengths as they apply to your role and the strengths of others you work with in their roles.
Research shows that Emotional Intelligence is one of the most important factors in leader success, interpersonal relationships, collaboration, and mental health. Most people are under-using their Emotional Intelligence strengths. Many are unaware of areas that need a little tweaking. Increased awareness translates to better performance, less stress and increased engagement.
