About the course

In this session you will learn about 7 ways to grow your leadership abilities and foster resilience on the part of yourself and those you lead. You will receive a personal profile of your strengths and weaknesses across the 5 strengths that make an excellent and resilient leader - Integrity, Mentoring, Aligned Values, Results, & Connection to the job. We will evaluate your top leadership priorities and learn if the time allocated to each is a match. We will assess your self rating of your leadership abilities and determine whether you tend to overestimate those abilities. And then we ll delve into 5 concrete skills to boost each of the 5 strengths of resilient leadership. Participants will learn how to convey integrity to direct reports, about the Optimism Gap that exists between leaders and employees (and how to bridge it); and how to align personal values with the values of your organization for optimal performance on the part of both individuals and teams.
