1 Day Intensive Seminar Workshop Plus Lifetime Learning Follow-On
We do projects to make change. Yet, change
will not occur without leadership, and leaders are rare. Leaders
make others want to do what the leader wants done. Leaders cause
ordinary people to achieve extraordinary things. Managing is not
the same as leading, and titles do not make leaders. Seminars
can teach you to manage, but they cannot teach you to be a leader.
Rather, making a leader takes special techniques--such as our
personal development clinics--that can change deep-seated behaviors
learned over a lifetime. However, since clinics usually last about
ten weeks, this mini-clinic was devised as a more convenient alternative.
This format places responsibility upon the participant to carry
out an extended informal follow-on program after completion of
the formal seminar workshop session. During the follow-on period,
the participant uses time-condensed methods that simulate the
lifetime learning which makes a leader. Therefore, commitment
to carrying out these exercises is essential for successful transformation.
* Leadership characteristics and practices
that are essential for project and personal success.
* Differences between management and leadership, how
they conflict, and why leaders are so rare.
* Behaviors project leaders use to influence others,
up and down, to want to do what the leader wants them
to do, even in the absence of formal authority or ability
to dispense tangible rewards.
* Special techniques personal development clinics use
to change lifetime learning and make leaders.
* How to employ those special techniques in a follow-on
mini-clinic to develop the leadership skills they need
to make their projects successful.
